What exactly does this rifle offer that I can’t build myself for much less money ? The market is over saturated with ar pattern rifles, at terribly high prices. I don’t buy into that top shelf ar crap unless your $1400 ar shoots plasma beams then it’s no better than the ar I built for $350

Graham Baates

This rifle offers complete ambi controls and is chambered in .308. That’s tough to do for $350. Read our shooting review here:


So you can build one for under $1,000? Let’s see it! I call BS. I’ve built 4 AR15’s (556, 300 & 6.8spc)from the ground up with 80% lowers and they cost WAY more than if I had purchased the completed product from a dealer. The only advantage is that there’s no serial number and they’re mine. AR10’s are even more expensive to build which is why I haven’t started on one yet.


You must not own a computer.
Complete free float 308 upper, $399.99
Complete 308 Lower $219.99
Not the cheapest they have, but this totals $620.00. Plus $30.00 for a mag.
Palmetto State Armory.
There are plenty of others out there that are less than $1000.00.

Palmetto State Armory. They sell a complete 308 upper w/free float hand guard and BCG for 399.99 and a complete 308 lower w/butt stock and LPK for $219.99 for a total of $620.00. Seems like that would be less than $1000.00, yes?


You proved me wrong! Doggone it! I admit it! Still, if I build another it’ll be from an 80%. Thanks for the correction.
