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 Recommendations
In light of recent events, a lot of people are interested in getting an AR out of fear of future restrictions. Here are a few ARs from good manufacturers that are priced in the $800-$1200 range
Bravo Company Machinery Recce 16 - LINK
Rock River Arms Tactical Operator 2 - LINK
Spikes Tactical ST15 - LINK
Stag Model 2T - LINK
A bit more expensive, but Colt LE6920. I'd pop off the handguard and throw some DD Omega Rails on it. - LINK
For higher-end ARs, check out Noveske (my favorite), Daniel Defense, Larue, LWRC, Knight Armament, LMT Magazines
In the world of AR-15 magazines, there is only one that you should consider buying: The Magpul PMAG. There is usually always a deal to get some in bulk for reduced cost somewhere on the internet. There was a deal where you could get 10 for $100, but they sold out very fast. I've been looking for some deals, but can't find any right now. I will update with link(s) when I find some.
Olgoi Khorkoi and Bapple are really knowledgeable guys, and they give great advice.
Please try and keep all AR-15 related stuff in here so we can keep the board nice and tidy.
