Beyond the ever increasing threats existing in the world and the possibility that significant gun control could be realized after the Presidential election – having an AR-15 can be flat out fun! Although there are many models out there costing well over $1000 if funds are a challenge there is still hope.
Just one example of putting together a very useable AR is shopping the sales from Palmetto State Armory. Located in South Carolina they do a massive online business and send out great sales flyers for those on their email list. I have toured their Columbia, SC location and talked to the owner/manager. He was a nice guy. The staff? Not so much. Regardless, their mail order business is excellent.
From a recent sales promotion:
- Blemished PSA Carbine Upper (no BCG) – – ($199.99)
- Complete M4 Lower – – ($199.99)
- Complete Bolt Carrier Group w/Charging Handle – – – ($129.99)
For just over $500 a complete AR can be put together. Shipping and handling as well as any transfer fees are not included.
Putting together an AR in this manner can be done a little at a time and part by part. Stripped lowers/uppers can be purchased and then specific parts added over time. It can be a lot of fun putting together your own gun piece by piece.
If the money is available all at once most manufacturers offer up a budget model between $500 and $600. ClassicFirearms.com is a good source.
Point of the post? No excuses! If you are wanting an AR the time is now.
