Well a co-worker bought a nearly new upper from a vendor we buy parts from for $250.00 with bolt carrier group and chargeing handle. I would have loved to got that deal. He looked all around for lowers locally. So he asked if I had ever put together a stripped lower and I told him never but, it looks easy. So he asked if I would help him put one together and I said sure. He bought a RRA stripped lower for 110.00, LPK, 70, and I traded him my old take off commerical 6 position stock assembly for some reloading supplies he did not use. Well took about an hour because I took my time I asked him if he wanted to do any of this he said I was doing just fine. Really, it's a one person job anyway. We found a good video online how to assemble a stripped lower and followed it. After building his lower, now I want to build one. I have a better understanding how the Ar works and if mine ever needs repairs or upgrades I feel I can do it. It's a very simple process and no one should be scared to try it. His complete Ar 15 cost him a grand total of $440 cash with tax. Must be nice. He's a good guy so I'm very happy for him. He called yesterday and said he ran 100 rounds through it and it functioned flawlessly. I am seriouly getting the itch to build one for myself but, I don't need another one.
