I'm looking in to getting, build a (few) AR's. I'm curious as to if there are any gun groups, or build groups in, or near Philladelphia, Pa. I live outside Philly, but will travel a few hours for the right wisdom. I know Mcvivian is too far away....lol.... But I'd fly out there to dig his brain...LOl...talk to ya!

There are quite a few good videos on the net that go over building AR's. Google is your friend. :cool:

If the Colt is in good shape I'd go for it.

Build or buy?

If you can find a complete rifle that you like, buy it.
Good parts are getting hard if not impossible to find now.

here is an update from Denny @ GTS about parts availability right now.

availability
Heading down tomorrow!! I"ll let you know how I make out! Thanks for the info. There's also a gun show this weekend here in King of Prussia. From wht I've be reading here on the forum, they're raping people lately on these gun shows. We'll see... Thanks again!

I think we just did one a little while ago, but I can't remember if it was a TRP (TheRallyPoint) or AR15.com "sponsored" build.

I think Jtkratzer participated... Donley's Gunshop generally has most anything you need for building (although I'd imagine he's running out of stock as well with the current situation).

I do know that they weren't building ARs up from scratch.

You might want to check on the Hometown forums of AR15.com because there's a lot more AR enthusiasts from the Philly area there.

Yep, don't expect to find many 'scary guns' for a decent price.

You can probably find some good milsurp guns there though and shotguns/hunting rifles, and as always you have as good of a chance or better finding a good deal from private sellers.
