So as not to flood the board, please direct all AR-15 related questions, comments, inquiries, pr0n, deals, etc in here. Building
For potential builders, here is an awesome step by step guide that I refer beginners too. Very well-done. It should be able to answer a lot of questions, and for people who may be on the fence about building, this may help them make up their minds. LINK
There are lots of youtube videos out there as well. It's easy, given the right tools. Don't be intimidated. If you need any construction assistance, bring your stuff to Bowie's and ask for me. Recommendations
Good, reasonably-priced ARs - S&W, Stag, Rock River. All can be had in the 700-1100 dollar range, depending on variant.
For higher-end ARs with more premium features, check out Noveske (my favorite), Daniel Defense, Larue, LWRC, Knights Armament, ADM, LMT, and JP. Daniel is probably the best value for what you get. Magazines
For magazines, always go PMAG or Lancer. I run both and they kick ass. Lots of good bulk deals can be found online.
For good opinions, look for posts from Clames, Propagandalf, Olgoi Khorkoi, IGchris, Bapple, jdavid, lsumakemewanna, tiddlesmcdiddles, kengel. I know im leaving some out, thats just the few that I can think of right now. If you want to be added to OP and are not listed, tell me.
Please try and keep all AR-15 related stuff in here so we can keep the board nice and tidy.
