    For those that have built their own.What would you say the savings would be compared to buying one new.I know there are several brands,but ball park,and how would you rate the degree of difficulty for an inexperienced person to build one.I ask because next year i am interested in getting one and have never built anything like that before.

    Building your own is a piece of cake. Shop around and pick up parts when they go on sale. Check gun shows, You may find uppers and lowers already built for a good price. I can build one from scratch in about an hour. The only special tools you need is a barrel wrench and barrel blocks or receiver block. You can lock the barrel in a vice with the barrel blocks. The best way is to use a receiver block and clamp the receiver in the vice. You need to do this to torque the barrel and line up the gas tube hole and barrel nut. Headspace is built in. It's between the locking lugs and the chamber of the barrel. I have never see an AR15 or a M16 with a bad headspace and I've inspected 100's of 1000's of M16's!

    +1 for what Red Hat said. It wasn't hard at all and the best part is you get exactly what you want. If you want a M4 profile middy on a slick side upper...... Thats what you get. AR15.com has some great stickys that show assembly step by step, including pictures. Here is what my first build has:

    Anvil Arms Lower - $120
    DPMS Lower Parts Kit - $47.49
    Falcon Industries ERGO sure grip - $16.29
    6 position Buttstock - $55.00
    DPMS stripped A3 flattop upper - $80.99
    DPMS Port Door Assm. - $4.49
    DPMS Foward Assist Assm. - $9.49
    DPMS Charging Handle - $16.99
    Bushmaster Bolt Carrier Assm. - $123.99
    A.R.M.S low profile flipup rear sight - $95.00
    Bushmaster Ultra Lightweight 16'' Barrel Assm Chrome Lined 1-9 twist - $230.00

    Total=$799.73

    When I went to Bushmaster site their sugg. retail price on their ultra lightwieght A3 rifle was $1215.00. So I got exactly what I wanted for less.

    The other nice thing is you don't have to come up with the $1000.00 up front. Buy up pieces when its on sale or you have the money and before you know it you have a complete rifle.

    Hope this helps.

    Lock it !

    I have a 16" Tactical CAR with a few options for my liking. The pricing for the time was cheaper than most of the bigger names (Armalite, Bushmaster, Colt). And the trigger is the best! I have had a few people that are real familiar with AR's shoot mine and all they do is rave about the trigger and accuracy.

    At 100 yards with a scope and some decent ammo, under an 1" for 5 shots is easy. Also, using my EOTech holosight and a sandbag, I have placed 5 shot groups consistently at about 1.5 inches.

    Mine's a Bushmaster. I love it. Shoots well and handles nicely.

    Best AR-15

    I have a Rock River Arms in .223. It is a tack driver. I would never part with it.

    I guess i will start looking into parts and see if i will end up building my own or purchasing one.I appreciate all the information from everyone.Sounds like building one would be a great project for me and my son since he keeps telling me i should get one so we can take it to the range.
