C'mon Skillet, not you too. Those things are hideous!

I'm gonna get a wood stock and leather fringe for it like that sweet 1895 SBL on here a little while ago.  I think there's also a rail-mount saddle ring available.  You won't even know.

Also, don't be afraid to buy your own pieces... With an AR tool, a vice block, a hammer, a set of punches and a torque wrench you can pretty easily assemble your own upper.  Best way to get some quality parts where you care (barrel) and some cheap parts where you don't (gas tube, handguard, etc) is to buy the pieces on your own.

The only pieces that are caliber specific are the barrel, mags and bolt face.  Everything else is the same.

Nice barrel and nice trigger are about the only pieces that actually matter to me.

Good luck.

Well if this said person is in the market. He has a friend in the firearm industry that has provided a few firearms to him already. I am sure this person could probably help him find some parts or a upper for said build. Bonus is this friend loves crunchy tuna and fish from said person :chuckle:

He can find what he needs here

https://www.bearcreekarsenal.com/upper-assemblies?spec_caliber=346

Sure, if you want the cheapest junk possible that may or may not work well.

Guys, if you're just starting out with an AR and don't know much about them or how to tell if your parts are built right, don't buy cheap junk like Bear Creek. You don't have to go high end like Daniel Defense, but at least stick with something middle of the road that has a reasonable reputation for working well.

PSA? Iím a novice here, too.

The PSA stuff is mostly OK parts, but they don't always do a good job with assembly. I don't mind that for myself, since I'm willing to tear them down and assemble them right, but if you're looking for something ready to go out of the box aim a little higher; I'd consider something from BCM if I wasn't building my own. On the PSA stuff (both uppers and lowers), I have found several things they've left loose on assemblies I've bought; most notably the buffer tube & nut in the lower, and the barrel nut in the upper.

Roger that!  It might be an interesting project to build a gun only on trading fish.  I'm into this for some coho, prawns and halibut so far...

Here is a picture of the 275 XPB Barnes, which is the bullet they produce for the 460 Mag, shot out of a Ruger Ranch 450BM at a 250# California sow at 150 yds.  Did the job quite well.  The 450BM load in my AR is with the 250 XPB Barnes at 2200fps.  Couldn't take that to Cali for some political reason.  I think it holds 7 rounds in a 20 round PMAG.

Not to thread jack but have a random AR question, can we still buy 80% lowers without an FFL? I have been looking for the answer, but cannot find a definitive answer. Thanks
