I'm looking to spend maybe up to +/- $1200 on an AR. I'm curious as to what a decent custom build would cost compared to dropping the 1.2k on a brand name AR. I know the sky is the limit but would I be better off spending the time and effort to build an AR and save some money or spend the same amount and get a better gun building my own compared to what $1200 would get with brand name AR? Is it really worth it to build my own AR with $1200? Can I build an equivalent AR for less compared to a prebuilt brand name AR for the $1200? Does my money go further by doing my own work assembling an AR? Thanks for replies!
