It not that hard if you have a little mechanical knowledge and some common sense. You really get a good understanding of the weapon and how everything works. The parts individually are not that expensive so you can piece it together over time or replace something you mess up. The amount of online information makes it easy enough even our resident guest who posts in a trolling style could do it. They are much more portable than trying a shotgun build.I’ve always been concerned about screwing it up.
I built one in May myself
Very rewarding experience
Nope. Wrong.I agree that it can be a rewarding experience, particularly if you have never worked with the AR platform before. What I like best about building your own firearm is the fact that an unconstitutional FFL is not involved. If you were to buy the exact same rifle already assembled from a gun dealer, then you would have had to fill out an ATF form 4473, and be entered into the NICS. By buying just the components and assembling it yourself you by-pass that unconstitutional requirement.
I try and pick up a box or 2 of 7.62x39 and 9mm when I'm out and it does add up. Got a box of Liberty 9mm 50 grain HPs I'm itching to test. 2000 ft per second is listed and I got spare barrels.No doubt
I found .223 for $0.49 per round and grabbed 1,000 rounds a month ago
Then there is the 9mm HP, .357 mag, .380 HP, and the 12g 00 buck, and the .22LR.
It never ends.
Really? Then you must be buying from a dealer with an FFL. I would find another seller. I never went through an FFL holder when I bought my AR-12 in 2018.Nope. Wrong.
The stripped or assembled lower is serialized, and must go through an FFL, and the accompanying NICS check
What the Hell are you shooting that 9mm in?I try and pick up a box or 2 of 7.62x39 and 9mm when I'm out and it does add up. Got a box of Liberty 9mm 50 grain HPs I'm itching to test. 2000 ft per second is listed and I got spare barrels.
