    I've been through 4 auction sites and I think I've seen 2 ridiculously over priced ma compliant ar's.

    I suppose that's an option. I'll have to look into what it will cost me its been a while since I price checked. Just figured I'd be lazy and buy a used one and then gut it.

    Opinions on spikes tactical?
    I'm contemplating the build.
    By the time all is said and done with the fees etc in ma. I'm probably looking at about $1200.
    St punisher lower $115
    St enhanced 16" upper $695 (ma comp)
    St lower parts kit $71.95
    St carbine buffer kit $61.95
    M4 stock (pinned) $40
    Stock wrench $24.95
    Am I missing anything? See anywhere I can save more?

    This should save you about 60 odd bucks.

    I know you said 115 for the lower. Is it because you like the rollmark? If it's not, then you may want to look at this.

    Remember, though, you'll be looking at that rollmark regularly, so you want to get what you want for it.

    Yeah I think the little bit of extra personality is worth the $40. I'll do a custom color fill on the logo etc. Myself

    Which is why I mentioned it. When I built mine, I didn't pay a lot of attention to the roll mark because the one I wanted was sold out.
    Every time I see that damn roll mark? Real men comes to mind. That or Space Balls, and it just doesn't sit well.

    I know what they want you to see with those little cannons but truthfully? That rollmark should have been better thought out.

    Let me rephrase then. It's supposed to be a weapons manufacturer/supplier. I HOPE they are supposed to be cannons!

    I own a spikes tactical ar-15 and I love it. Has run flawlessly since I've got it. Run Pmc and xm193 through it. Pretty basic at the moment but that will be changing soon and I know from talking with the LGS that spikes is building a good name and there products are in high demand and pretty hard to come by at the moment in these parts
