I would seriously jump on one of them if there are any left. That's a great price for a great gun.

I'm not a huge fan of Colt in general but they make a damn nice AR.

I posted that link over in the Depot section a few days ago and I think there already may be a few MDShooters members that may have caused the stock on hand to drop a bit.




Edit: I just clicked on the link and it looks like they are Out Of Stock on damn near everything.

Aero Precision M4E1 Stripped Lower
Aero Precision M4E1 Stripped Upper
Aero Precision Quantom M-Lok Handguard
Toolcraft phosphate BCG
LaRue MBT-2s
If you go the Aero route do yourself a favor and try the IP's and places like Brownells for parts instead of going directly through Aero. I placed an order with them on 8/22 and the bulk of it shipped on 8/31 except one of my handguards. It went on backorder sometime between the 22nd and 30th. I literally just got it today after chasing the FedEx driver for 3.5 miles because they required a direct signature for it.

Indeed, you might have. They're wiped out now. Can't get the page to load. Forget if they also had the carry handle, but they came with a SureFire WML. If I hadn't purchased another Colt AR earlier this year, I would have gone for one of these and then approached Clandestine to see if he was doing the AR inspection/quality control work these days.

Colt M4 SOCOM 14.5" is a MD Approved HBAR that has a lighter contour than traditional HBAR.

If you buy a COLT SOCOM it will have that barrel, or you can use a Colt SOCOM 14.5 barrel with a pinned muzzle device and be MD Legal on whatever base AR you build.

So OP, you want to use my build price of around 700 from 2015/2016 as a baseline to build one? Good luck.

Realistically it will cost around 900 to build one, if you play it smart on when you buy things.

Oh and the PM you sent me shows you've been lurking on the site for a long time or you know how to search for things on here.

EDIT:
Here is your timeline for post and PM.

Intro post 12:03 pm
PM to me 12:06pm
Creation of this thread 12:36pm

I am sensing something that doesn't give me the warm and fuzzies.

Psssst!!

pssssst! SpikeRR, That Clandestine thinks he knows about ARs


in all seriousness, brother Clandestine is the Obi-Wan/Yoda of ARs. He will steer you right. He knows his schnit- oh , and I have taken a few AR armorer's and build classes from him. He readily shares his knowledge, as do a lot of other great people on this forum. All are willing to share.
