There are too any guns I would want that I have never had.
I sold my used $900 DPMS for $1600 ($1435 to me after consignment fee), to build the following gun for under $1300:What's your price point????
Very smart upgrade Sweeper! I dunno, those components sound pretty darn Tier 1 to me! Sounds like the perfect reason for breaking the rule of not giving up the bird in hand to get the two in the bush. Now if those little birdies just come flying in over the next weeks!I sold my used $900 DPMS for $1600 ($1435 to me after consignment fee), to build the following gun for under $1300:
PSA 16" upper, MI handguard
M16 BCG, BCM gunfighter CH, MBUS flip sights
PSA/Magpul STR lower build kit
Whether that's a "tier 1" gun or not is in the eye of the beholder I suppose. Probably it's a "1.5". Once I add a Vortex Sparc, it'll be a pretty even money swap for the DPMS funds. So all that really matters to me is that I substantially upgraded for free. Some of my stuff is still in the UPS system, will get a pic of the build up in a couple weeks.
All of the build has been purchased over the last 3 weeks. So the point is, good stuff can be had at fair prices even now. But you've got to know where to look and it doesn't sit on the virtual shelves for very long.
