It begins....

I ordered 2 Anderson AR15 lower receivers today from a local gun dealer. I should have them around the first week of January...

Thanks for all the advise and I'm sure I'll be back with more questions...

Stuff just keeps showing up here. Today it was 3 "super sale priced" stock/buffer tube assemblies. Yesterday a case of ammo. The day before was gas blocks and tubes. Sooner or later it all gets fitted together and goes bang.

I'm thinking an A2 DMR and a .300 Blackout pistol for this 2 frames... Time will tell if I stick to that...

No such thing as extra parts, just incomplete rifles.

I have recently learned this, need almost a complete upper right now, starting with just a Bear Creek Arsenal veterans Day giveaway barrel.

Never enough parts. We just received a lower completion jig "gifted" by a guy who figured out the only way to stop using it was to give it away.

Sounds like my other firearms related vices. Buying cheap milsurps has all but dried up. I have about all the TC Contender barrels I'm interested in. Now on to the AR builds. I bought a stripped lower a couple weeks ago with the plan of building a 300 BLK pistol. But am already thinking of the next project. Deciding between a 458 SOCOM or 224 Valkyrie.

You should just order more right now... you’ll catch the fever.

I finally boxed up my extra AR parts and put them out of sight.

All my lowers are built on Anderson stripped lowers and have been flawless.
