Re: Want an AR15, what's the best out of box?
I built my own last summer, well..all but the lower. I didn't want to screw around with that. I put it together for about $800 before taxes, not including the 1.5x5 Leupold and PEPR mount I put on there. The upper is a 18" Black Hole Weaponry Barrel with a Mid Length gas system and YHM rail and Flip up front sight gas block, and Rock River BCG. The Lower is made my Aero Precision and the buffer tube, stock and pistol grip are made by Magpul. The BUIS is made by Matech and I think it is what is being used on the Colt rifles...I could be wrong on that??? I bought all my parts minus the Magpul pieces at Surplus Ammo and Arms. They are a bunch of assholes to be blunt and take forever to get back to you, but I did find them to have the best prices. They also have pre-assembled Uppers and Lowers with pretty much the same specs I built mine with. Im not saying my way was the best way, but for my first AR, and putting to together for the price I did, I am ecstatic with it!
