I wouldn't really call that an AR15 persay... Its closer to an AR10 variant to be honest. Spit my ******* coffee out when he shot the *******... One day I'm gonna buy some of that exploding target ****. Wonder how many of those would take to get permban from rifle ranges..
Have been searching for cheap parts kits on the interwebs. Most are going for $200 without a barrel since the **** @ ATF make them cut them now. Recently scored a parts kit with 922 compliance parts for about that much, he threw in a flat for free. Using the rough finished furniture which came with my kit the complete compliant rifle should cost about $240.00 not counting any tools.
I had a "picked" Bulgarian Makarov for a while that I really liked.
Was a great shooter. The 9x18 round was a plus as I was trying to get my wife into shooting. She never went out with me, but I enjoyed it anyways because I could practice with it pretty easily for a long time and actually work on technique, unlike my Taurus carry gun which wasn't the best target shooter.
Also very easy to break down and clean, and great size for a car gun that's still big enough to fit naturally in your hand.
