Every full parts kit i found was sold out when i started looking in mid-october. I'm guessing the election dried up the last remaining "cheap" ARs. I calculated, after i decide on buis for mine, it will have costed about 1150 total (fees, tax, shipping included). But ill be happy because everything on it is exactly what i want.
Edit: Still extremely interesting thread for <$600 AR. Good read
I told the new me,
"Meet me at the bus station and hold a sign that reads: 'Today is the first day of the rest of your life.'"
But the old me met me with a sign that read: "Welcome back."
