I'm starting to hate the AR platform. I decided I wanted one in November, ok, my birthday is coming... A few shooting buddies gave me a lower for my birthday. Now, I cant be rude, I need to build it into a functioning rifle. Off to BCM and PSA I go. $850 later I have a working weapon. Sweet, but I need ammo to test it. Picked up a case of 5.56 from a local gun shop. $350, but I have ammo to shoot. Everything is good, rifle shot great, but I need mags... $560 later, I have 50 mags. Great, need ammo to fill the mags... $1200 spent, and I have 4000rds of ammo I needed a light. No problem, just another $100 So, I have a light, rifle, and sights, but what about a sling? Sling plate and sling - $75 Now, I had it all set up, ready to run, then I saw a eotech that I had to have. Ok, went to the lgs and plunked down $650 I came across a magpul forend, it looked great and seemed comfortable I ordered it $40 Now, the magpul forend doesn't put my light where I like it. Great, need a new light and mount $300 While I'm looking for a new light and mount, I see a lmt sopmod stock and it looks comfortable. $200 And, wouldnt you know it, there was a nice MOE grip in the related products for the stock. $65. I think you all see where this is going, if you see a gun shop offering an Ar for sale, RUN AWAY My little Armalite turned from an inexpensive range toy to twice the down payment on a new Jeep.
