AR-15 Finished

Here's the AR-15.  Parts rundown:
  • .223 bull barrel 24" - $200
  • DPMS Bolt+Carrier+Charge handle - ~$150
  • Del-Ton Lower - $225 (yes, I paid that much, dammit!)
  • DPMS (and some Olympic parts) Lower Parts - ~$70
  • DPMS Upper + Parts  - $145
  • Float Tube - $50
  • A1 Butt Stock - $30

Total - $870.  Not exactly saving money by building your own rifle during the current situation, but at least I learned how the thing functions.  I don't think it was possible to buy a complete rifle for less than $600 in the past nine months but that's how much much a mix-'n-match like this is supposed to sell for.   The 14X Scope (BSA) and Riser+5" Extension (Yankee Hill Machinery) cost $35 and $20 and I already had these two lying around so I didn't factor them into the total cost. I haven't had a chance to fire it and I don't think I want to.  I think I may end up selling the upper since I already have a nice .223 T/C Contender Carbine.  I didn't realize I wasted so much money on this 'till JUST NOW.
