Idk about some of you, but russian and german tig welds on their guns is a major sexy factor imo

Borrowing a CZ SP01 from a buddy, mostly tweaked to mimic a Shadow model. Going to play tomorrow with it, if it shoots like I expect... might be making a trade for it.

Wishing my Tac-Sol receiver would get here for my Ruger though... I need to shoot more .22.

If I could get this gun for $1200 new with the RIF2 system. Essentially $900 less than MSRP. Is it worth it to build your own?

Is 5.56 still a good option when compared to the .300 blackout?

The goal of any diy build would be for a target/match quality build.

Hurm, anything over 1k i'd rather hand pick the majority of parts.

So I shot the Shadowized (still needs single action trigger put in) SP01 today... going to trade for it. Really enjoyable to shoot, must add to collection.

I also found a used Benelli m1 Super 90 today... for a steal and left a deposit. Been wanting a Benelli since I shot a buddies m2 last year.

where do you recommend looking around for the best deals? PAwn shops, small gun shops?

I wish pawn shops FFL'd around here, but its just gun shops. I'd check used gun shop shelves, ARMSLIST - Gun Classifieds, ar15.com etc...

It also depends on what you want, lots of the guys have posted up all kinds of deals in this thread. Good stuff to build a decent AR.

My personal focus for builds has so far began with the barrel/comp/bcg. Then the rest of mostly used parts.

This is clearly where they justify the money:
Case: Comes with Custom Daniel Defense Full-Latch Impact Plastic Case

You can't compare 5.56 to 300blk by any standard of measure. I had a hard-on for a few months to build a 300blk upper strictly for hunting in lieu of buying a 30cal bolt gun, and realized I was kidding myself.

My current take on 300blk:
Subsonics: might as well buy a 1911 with lasergrips.
Supersonics: for the price of an upper, get a Ruger American in .308 instead.

Super unlikely... but does anyone have any used Chokes for a Benelli M1 Super 90 they'd like to sell?

That's the Rock River Arms LAR-47. Basically a billet 7.62x39 standard AR Upper on a custom designed billet lower which will accept AK magazines, solving the feeding issue common of 7.62x39 AR's..
