    Mods, I was reading a thread over in the general firearms section about a newby buying an AR, and there were links to "The Chart" as well as some other useful build-related and purchase-related information. Can we have a 'stickied' thread with these and other AR-related links, like as is on the 1911 page?

    "the chart" only helps you see what fully built rifles have to offer. There is a google document that has both the chart and an explanation of what everything means that was posted by an M4carbine.net member. He prefers that you ask permission before posting his chart (or linking to it). While I agree having it here as a reference would be good, you should get his permission before using it.

    Not a prob re: the chart, but a list of resources would be helpful. I am kind of dogged, so if I am pushing my luck, just beat me over the head and tell me to STFU. I don't take it personally! :)

    Since most people "building" an AR buy complete uppers, the chart can be just as useful to them as someone looking for complete rifles.

    Thanks for the gouge, fellas. I am getting an AR tomorrow via a trade, and aside from the M4s I was issued, really know very little about the platform. I am trying to educate myself, and I am quickly realizing I don't know what I don't know.

    Can you buy an upper from anyone on the top of the chart...... other than BCM and they dont make a whole lot of complete rifles.
