My first was a S&W m&p sport. I had it for a fee years, exchanging parts and rebuilding it.

What I found is I like the novelty of finding parts and seeing what matches best and the type of performance I can get out of it, so I’m a big supporter of building your own. My most recent was an LWRC IC DI, but it was perfect for me so I didn’t feel the need to change anything.

At that price point I would hope you wouldn't need to change anything on a LWRC lol

Mines in the classifieds right now so the money can go towards a PTR 9C.

I love the rifle, but I can do without.

I built an AR47 (7.62 x 39) for under $500. I machined a Polymer80 80% lower, installed a POA trigger, a PSA complete upper. I get very good accuracy even with Wolf ammo. The machining wasn't difficult, took less than an hour. YouTube has many videos on machining 80% lowers and installing lower parts.
I got 10 round mags from North River.
I would include a photo of a 10 round 100 yd group but the file size is too large.

Complete rifle brands:
Colt - Gold standard to which all others are judged
Winham Weaponry - good stuff
Ruger - good stuff
Daniel Defense - good stuff, last I heard they still held a CAGE code
LWRCI - good stuff
LMT - good stuff
Saber Defence - good luck finding one, but if you do, pick it up
Rock River Arms - good stuff
Smith & Wesson - good stuff

Pick one and buy that sucker. Join the AR DGI club. It's like the He Man Woman Hater's Club from the Little Rascals, but we allow women, as long as they promise they own at least one AR.
Good advice.

I know you only have 17 posts but there is a requirement that feet must be in every gun picture.

The Faxon barrel is very nice. I may have had one before a tragic boating accident. It was a tack driver, if you do your part.

I'll be sure to take a pic of the firearm on the floor in better lighting once assembled lol.

Yes indeed feet are absolutely required if taken on the floor. And if bare feet, toenails should be manicured, if only for avoiding comments from other members....
