New guy here

Recommended Posts

Just getting in to ar's. Was in the army and have shot my share of black rifles. Glad to be here and excited to learn. Just picked up a New Frontier polymer lower. Looking to do a budget build. I know, I know ewww a polymer lower. Well fit is good, it works good, and the price is good. I'll upgrade on a later build!

:welcome: to the Armory

Just be prepared to replace that lower sooner than later, 4 members here in the past few months already have had them break.

Cheaper is never better and the only thing it does is in the beginning you have something that never lasts just remember that.

Well it seems to do what I want it to for now. I don't plan on but stroking or throwing it around any. If need be I'll replace the lower hardware with metal stuff.

Guess I should have said I live in Richmond, originally from upstate New York. Let the Yankee jokes ensue!

Welcome, come on in and make yourself at home.

 

You have found the best gun board on the web.

 

 

As far as that poly lower, if you ever foresee yourself using your rifle to defend life or limb, save up for a forged lower ASAP. You can get a decent blem lower for not a whole lot of money. If interested, ask some of our gurus for links. Spikes, PSA, Delton, Anderson come to mind.

 

Friends don't let friends defend themselves with poly ARs.

I broke and spent the jack! I picked up a Sig Sauer M400 enhanced (black) at Walmart for $867 plus tax. It came with the Magpur furniture, magpul mag, padded rifle bag and rear flip up sight. I replaced the rear sight with a fixed A2 style. Might put a Laser and light on it at some point. Not sure about optics. I would rather keep it simple and neat.
