    Damn. Same kit up to $330 now.

    Leaving this thread here for the links.

    Mine arrived, seems fine. I’ve built exactly one AR before so I could be missing something. Everything is clean and seems well machined, molded or made. Packed well and shipped/delivered as promised.
    I’ll dig through some lowers I’ve accumulated and hopefully get to this in the next few weeks.

    Holy packing peanuts on the shipping...wow.

    A bit aggressive perhaps, but OK...

    At this price point, just about every kit I've seen has mostly US made parts, at least the major ones like the upper and lower receivers, barrel, BCG, and LPK. You can just about guarantee Chinesium handguard and stock assembly (tube, buffer, spring, as well as the actual stock itself). As far as which one is better, unless they give you the brand names of the respective parts, no way to tell. Bear Creek Arsenal and Unbranded AR make a lot of the US made parts for other companies, to their customer's spec and price point.

    To anybody considering one of these, keep in mind you are not getting Colt, BCM or Daniel Defense. You're not paying for those names, either. Don't expect match grade triggers or barrels. Very possible an M4 carbine length gas type barrel will be overgassed, and might need a bit of tweaking. The gas key may or may not need a bit of extra staking. From my experience, these kits (I've built a few now) have come a long way, and can be built into a fun, reliable, as-accurate-as-you-are, range toy. Will you have to replace something a bit sooner, probably, but you'll most likely have a couple of thousand rounds through it by then. You also won't worry so much if you scratch it. At least I don't.

    If you want to dip you toes in the AR market to see what all the fuss is about, kits from KM Tactical, Outdoor Sports USA, and Durkin Tactical can be the way to go. Any of them I've built for myself or others are all running pretty damn good.

    To the lower, load through an open bolt.
    Just don’t drill for it where an auto sear hole would go...👍

    Nobody in NYS (except maybe DSI) will tell what’s good and what’s not.

    Or, if you want to go featureless, you have some decisions to make, and a few more bucks to spend.
    The Thordsen stock is almost like "Old Reliable", but not everybody's favorite, and not exactly cheap.
    If you can live with green, (or own some Krylon Fusion spray paint) they start at $50, and go up from there.

    You can buy the thread protector at the same place as the kit:

    I can drill and pin it for you, but you'll need it welded.

    The stock can be locked a few different ways:

    I recently came across these at Primary Arms:
    https://www.primaryarms.com/SI-AR-STOCKSTOP
    https://www.primaryarms.com/aimsport...in-pjarstkcp-b

    Spur grips kinda suck. If you want a featureless grip, these are cheaper and better (also from the same place that sells the kit):

    Not a spur, but featureless, and can be in hand for $10. About half the price of a spur.

    Fixed mag is the most convenient way to go. You'll need a P-mag or similar.

    Magpul PMAG or similar. Very easy to drop the base plate and clear the malfunction.

    Can be had locally for about $20. Cheaper online, but shipping would most likely kill any savings if you're just buying one piece.

    All Star Tactical, based in Rochester, makes an affordable and easy to use mag lock.

    If you want the epitome of low budget mag lock, use a 10-32 nut with a washer in place of the mag catch button.

    What a time to be alive where you can build an AR for $400 and a quality AK is 700-1000+.
