    An excellent web page that will let you put a rifle together and see how it would look.

    You also get an itemized parts list and total price so you see what it would cost you too.

    It told me what I already knew. Building an AR is waste of money. For the $3,100 it would have cost me I'll take an AK, a bunch of extra 30rd'ers and drums and about 7,500 rounds of Wolf.

    Nice, very cool to see it online and get a feel for what's out there. I have to agree that an AR is a big pit that you throw money into, but if that's what you are into, this might be the way to go about figuring out what configuration you wanted. I certainly wouldn't turn down an AR if someone wanted to give one to me or sell one at a more reasonable price. I'm not holding my breath on either though.

    Obviously, it is going to be cheaper to buy a package deal.

    But if you want to have a custom AR to your exact liking you can see what it would cost you and how it would look.

    I absolutely HATE AKs but that is me. The AK is the weapon of my enemy and I would not personally own one myself. It does not do anything for me.

    But to each... his own. Either you love the AR and all that you can customize on it or you don't.

    I don't understand, 'I would now own one' and 'it does not do anything for me' seem contradictory.

    He obviously meant I would NOT own one.

    It would seem that way, huh?

    Try to use some deductive reasoning and maybe there are enough clues in the sentence to help you find a typo that has so easily confused you.

    Hint:
    1. I absolutely HATE AKs
    2. It does not do anything for me.
    Did you really think I meant to imply that I have or would own one?

    Funny how one letter can throw someone off so easily.

    The same could be said of one's own "proofreading" abilities before clicking on the send button. Try to use some deductive reasoning

    and maybe there are enough clues in the sentence to help you find a typo that you so easilymade.
    I never make mistakes. So I do not need to proof read. I intentionally did it just to confuse the populace to see what would happen.

    The outcome was as expected!!

    It has since been modified since the experimentation is over.

    I just wanted to see who would bite first... you or Doug. He beat you to it!

    I have two AK's & am in the process of building two AR's.

    Each makes an outstanding fighting rifle. You've just got to remember, "the AR is a prom queen & the AK is a biker bitch, treat each accordingly."

    +1.....with the ability to clean and perform maintenance on the AR, it will outshoot the AK any day. But the AK will hit harder and keep shooting a hell of a lot longer. Just depends on what you want out of your rifle.

    so I am your enemy?

    I personally love the Kalashnikov designs, and that makes me your enemy?

    or are you using the same tried and true anti's "evil assault rifle" trick?

    thousands of law abiding people use AKs, and thousands of criminals use Glocks, which is standard Police issue in most jurisdictions, am I correct?

    I said the same thing to myself when I priced out my 3.7K priced AR

    Sign of these crazy times: virtually every complete upper and lower on the site is sold out.

    Are you a communist from a foreign country at odds with the US?? Because that is my enemy.

    I hope you understand that most if not all communist countries use the AK-47 when they shoot at and kill our soldiers.

    See for yourself. Take a look at the countries that have adopted this firearm.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AK-47

    So when I say "my enemy", I am referring to those that fight us in combat. Not the non-combatant collector.

    Stop getting bent out of shape looking for something that is not there.

    Nothing personal. But you are obviously taking it the wrong way.

    Since I was never a history major, and if we are going to continue down this road, I would like to ask this question..... is there any reason I should dislike all of my UZIs? If the design has ever been used in combat I suppose I could be convinced to toss them in the trash.
    The difference being... I do not like AK-47s.

    I would not mind having an UZI. You can give them to me if they make you feel bad.

    And tossing them in the trash would be irresponsible. They could end up in the hands of people that should not have them. Such as children.

    Somebody PLEASE think of the children!!!

    No police bashing, please.



    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    "It's for the chilldruun!" (Joycelyn Elders, SGOTUS, BOG) is an invitation to thoughtlessness and entirely appropriate from BOG Brother CLEOTUS.

    IIRC BOG SGOTUS was speaking of substituting self-abuse for sex because the BOG ranks are increased by thoughtless concord and not by any sort of congress.

    BOG CLEOTUS would give up discrimination for mandated love of the tyrant's teeth.

    Prepare to be assimilated by the BOG. Resistance to Obamination is futile. BOG Brothers are watching - OBEY!!

    AKs are way cool. ARs are way cool.

    As to the children, SuperSoakers and Nerfs are also way cool. I had a kid just to have a reason to buy those.:P :celebrate

    SooperSoakers are good tools, too, for washing my satellite internet antenna with warm Rain-X de-icer to remove the snow build up.

    I don't think you know nearly as much about ARs OR AKs as you think you do... or you have VERY minimal requirements.
