I was thinking about buying an AR- 15. I see that same people buy them and others build them and was wondering what the reasoning was.

Some buy a complete rifle because they want a factory warranty.
Some buy because they feel it is too complicated to build themselves.

Others build because they can buy exactly what they want, and spread the money spent over time. Some build so that they know how their rifle works.

these are just a few but probably the main reasons I can think of.



I build because I like to "bargin shop" the EE on ar15.com

I "saved" probably around $750 on this build by buying "used".

Mvician hit the nail on the head essentially.

I have to ask, what length is that barrel? I'm planning on building a long(er) range AR15 like that.

i have both built and bought rifles.

ive got three bought rifles.

1 stag
1 S&W
1 Colt

ive built

1 stag
1 LMT

and im working on 2 more and will probably fund the two builds by selling off the Colt LE6920 i was thinking about taking it to the big gun show tomorrow and seeing if can get any bites.

especially since im hearing today that $700 ARs are going for around $1200

$15 mags are going for $25 used glocks for $600

now i won't gouge on my price but im not going to give it away either.

I did hear that Bolt guns were pretty reasonable
