View Full Version : Shinny new AR-15

October 14, 2012, 10:13 PM
I decided to join the AR club. I own many rifles, but never an AR-15. A friend at worked asked me to look over his father's AR. He brought me a Sp-1 made in 1967. I was hooked! I cleaned it and took it to the range and I was really hooked. I went to the gun show this weekend. Saturday I did some looking and came home and did some research and Sunday I went back and purchased a Doublestar Corp. StarCar-A3 flattop. I also purchased an A3 detachable carry handle. I got it home and cleaned it up good and I'm ready for the range. I can't wait to see how it runs.

Enjoy it. I'd have spooned my AR the first night if it weren't for all the right angles.

First AR...just be careful, because it's never just one. It starts out as with a standard .223/5.56 with a 16" barrel...then you want another one with a long barrel for long distance/target shooting...then you realize "wow I can get an upper in 6.5 Grendel/.50 Beowulf/7.62 x 39/whatever odd caliber you want" so you get the other upper...then you find a deal on a lower, and before you know it you have three...

It's dangerous I tell ya! :D

Yep, I'm already looking to do a retro build. I only wish my friend had been willing to part with the Colt SP-1. It was in beautiful shape and shot like a dream.

Congrats! Have fun shooting it and buy lots of ammo!
