    How-to guide to build a custom AR-15

    Here are a couple of great sources to help you custom build an AR-15

    MidwayUSA gives you several options here...
    Midway USA - How to build an AR-15 Rifle

    Brownells offer several AR-15 videos..
    Brownells - How to build an AR-15 Rifle

    With the black rifles getting so popular it is good to know several ways you can customize them.

    Why not post direct links to Midway and Brownells rather than links to concealncarry.net with (presumably) copied or linked content from those two sources?

    Anything I post in these forums is my personal opinion formed by my own interpretation of the topic.
    IANAL and anything I say is not intended to be nor should it be taken as legal advice.

    That is a fair question. That would require multiple links from each as these video libraries which are great but buried in their sites private. This one location is like a search engine of Firearms info.

    Please read the Forum Rules.

    (14) LONG GUN CARRY IS OFF-TOPIC: This web site is focused on the right to openly carry properly holstered handguns in daily American life. We do NOT promote the carry of long guns. Long guns are great! OCDO co-founders John & Mike and most of the members of this forum own at least one long gun - but due to urban area issues of muzzle control, lack of trigger guard coverage, and the fact that the long gun carry issue distracts from our main mission to promote the open carry of handguns in daily life, we will leave long gun carry activism in the capable hands of the future founders of web sites about long gun carry.

    Can stay in General Discussion insofar as the discussion does not gravitate to carrying long guns.

    That sounds cool. While we all have our favorite pistol (XDM.45) I find it interesting that a single
    product like the AR-15 has turned into a new firearms favorite.

    I was wondering if someone has actually counted how many ways you can customize it?

    You could have that party and not a single person would end up with the save gun.

    Are you speaking of just a kit or 80% lowers?
    "Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the people's liberty teeth (and) keystone... the rifle and the pistol are equally indispensable... more than 99% of them by their silence indicate that they are in safe and sane hands. The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference .When firearms go, all goes, we need them every hour." -- George Washington

    With just 10 potential "options" on a "standard" configuration the posibilities are = 403,200

    Add to that 4 different calibers and the result is a staggering 9,686,476,800.......that is over 9.5 BILLION w/no 2 alike.

    Beyond that and many calculators respond with "Out of Range"/overload.
