In this episode David talks about Pros and cons of building vs buying an AR-15, as well as some tips when dealing with AR-15’s. Dave has completed several AR-15 build projects and believes that this is a great way to both save money as well as to learn about the AR-15 platform.
If you can build it from a parts kit, then you can replace broken parts. This puts you ahead of the curve in the gun portion of disaster preparedness.
Its also a great way to get an AR-15 at a great price, as you can save hundreds of dollars if you are building a stock mil-spec rifle. Alternatively, you can customize and enhance your rifle to get exactly what you want while still saving money compared to buying a fully tricked out rifle complete.
It is very easy to complete an AR-15 build, and the parts are readily accessible. All you need is common hand tools and a good guide. It only takes about 30 minutes to put together a complete AR-15 lower if you have read the instructions and have everything you need close at hand.
