I have been sick and feeling like crap this week so I had some time to play on the computer. Something I have wanted but never felt the urgency till now. My wife was asking what I wanted for Christmas so I said some gun parts. She told me to get them. So I bought a bunch of parts and this is what it looks like when assembled. Huh who knew. LOL
Actually it was a lot of fun to assemble everything I fired 3 rounds this morning just to test the operation. I still need to decide if I want a tactical scope or old iron sights or both.
Anyone else ?

WOW that thing is SWEET!! :punk: Love the barrel on that thing!

I've got a S&W M&P15 Sport. Nothing fancy. Don't even have a scope for it yet. Money's been tight. Been working on assembling a pile of reloading equipment for the 5.56/.223.

Sweet, that is my dream also. I have a mini-14 with tactical stock and JPoint sight. And all the necessary reloading equipment, just want an AR also.

Piecing it together was quite a bit cheaper than a new MP15(at least in PA anyway) . I was looking at them as well. Just assy time plus now I know how it all works. The barrel is an ARD 1-8 twist stainless with threaded compensator, most expensive part. The lower receiver is a MEGA Gator. I have to save my pennies for a scope now.

I have 2 red dots, that is what the JPoint is. It is not the best for clearness, wavy plexiglass in the "screen". I believe it is made for handguns close in. My Millet is cheap but works superb on a Savage 99. definetly consider a red dot sight. I wonder if you would share the costs you encountered in putting that machine together?

My brother put the Bushnell ACOG lookalike on his AR and I was impressed with it. Liked the reticle.

I really am still very undecided if I want irons or optical or both so for now I am on hold. I will wait till the next gun show that I have the extra coin to go to. I may buy some cheap iron sights so I can at least plunk some cans with it for now. If it is ever needed for protection which I seriously doubt I wont need sights.

Dicks sporting goods has a pretty sweet deal for a Troy AR-15 complete if building one makes you nervous. They had a $100 off the other day.

That is a route I may go. I like the idea of multiple choice. I figure I will be able to dress it up little by little. With the floating quad rail the possibilities are endless. :D
