I finally bit the bullet and got an AR

Post by gunsandstuff » Mon Jun 06, 2011 8:31 am

Have been a fan of military rifles for a long time.
Last time I went to buy an AR Bill Clinton was in office and AR's jumped $400 and I couldn't to it.
I cant wait to dess it up and het out anddo some shooting.
It was a lower grade unit but for my use will do just fine.

Congrats, Pix?
Probably better off in the "gun chat" section.

Congratulations on the new AR!
I've owned a Smith & Wesson M&P .223/556 for a couple of years and absolutely love shooting it!

I'm looking to get another AR in 308 with a 20" barrel.

Congrats, I got my first AR about a year and a half ago. Picked up a CMMG 9mm carbine a few weeks ago to keep it company! Looking forward to getting out to Tusco this Sunday for 100 yard steel plate for the big guy. Gotta check sometime this week and make sure the sights are still zeroed.

Here you go.
I want to do a trigger job and add another handguard.

2 stage match probably isn't in the budget just yet. Maybe a RRA single tage trigger.
I might try to polish up the existing one too. It seems a bit gritty.

this guy will do an excellent trigger job for 39.00 shipped and you'll get your stuff back in about a week.
