It used to be very cost effective to build your own AR-15. With the aggressive pricing today, complete factory produced AR’s can be had so cheap there is little reason to build your own – other than you want to. Advantages to building your own AR-15 range from putting together something unique which you cannot buy from S&W to designing/building an AR that is specific to its intended mission.
Many have chosen not to build their own AR’s as assembling all those pieces can be intimidating. The reality is for most builds it is a step by step process – much like baking a cake.
The two videos below show the process for both the lower and upper parts of the AR.
Time to have some fun!!!
