Rick got a few questions…
After research on the net, order everything, delivered, everything is in front of you…
How many hours at the bench to build this?
Total cost?
Then there’s tools? Cost?
Hope I’m not to nosy.
This is something I really want :v::v:

@Captainjack88 Prices can vary, for example I wanted an A1 but got a sweet deal on an A2 w/flat top upper, for 379.00. The A1 handguards ran me 35 bucks, A1 upper was 100 bucks, rear sight kit was 30 I think, tear drop forward assist another 12 bucks, USGI sling adds another 15 bucks, add shipping. Tools ran me around 75 bucks, see Tools for AR building I’ve seen kits offering “'Nam issue” Colt parts for just shy of 600. No barrel or lower. Barrels can run from 150 to 300 depending on your taste. As this was my second build, I don’t include the tools in this build, and have a third in the wings. Oh, the CA legal mags ran me 35 bucks shipped.

@Chris19do

I looked this up on the net
I do this a lot with you builders so I can try to figure out what your talking about. Sometimes I have to work a little harder when you all abbreviate.

Correct me if I’m wrong but Fightlight SCR is the complete rifle or just the stock?

Attached is a photo from the net

If I do this I’ll just buy the lower and proprietary bolt carrier group and build the rest myself. As much as I hate wierd property shit on my rifles where you’re reliant on a single source for replacement parts, a wood stocked scr looks amusing.

I thought about bull-puping a AR.,one like a saw done with a SKS coupe years ago…


THE guy chopped the stock out of wood, and made a internal trigger bar and cam arrangement.I would move the forend /stock up and drop a lower dot… but it could be done…

What ever you decide to build get a ballistics advantage barrel. I decided to go back to a 16 inch barrel rom 20 inch. My upper is from kerris arms. Great company to deal with. Anyway I heard ballistic advantage barrels wer good and guarentee 1moa or less with good ammo.

I decided I would give it a try. I bought a 16 inch with mid length gas port. Cut my has tube to size and switched barrels.

Went to the range to check my zero. Uses regular federal american eagle 55 grain boat tail.

All I can say is this barrel really lives up to the accuracy hype.
Iron sights 100 yards 2 rounds touching one pulled to the left about an inch.
Dam I wish my RDB would do that without scope.

Seriously shocked!

The mid length gas port seems to shoot softer as well.

Great barrel for great price
Check them out!

They usually run between 170.00 and up. Came across super deal.

Ballistic advantage is good stuff, I have their barrels on a number of my guns. Also, they are the OEM manufacturer for a number of other companies including aero precision.

The price has always kept me away. Too many cheaper options.

Expensive but built strong to last.

I really like left side charging.
