Got AR?

With the prospect of another assault weapons ban on the horizon if Obama and Biden get in office, what are you doing to hedge your bets?

Are you quickly counting your nickels for an AR?

What is your local gun peddler doing? Is he ordering them up and claiming they are hard to get?

Well, America's favorite firearms parts source, Brownell's, is offering a web based video series on how to roll your own AR. They are offering these videos for (get this......) FREE! The video series gives the builder all the information necessary to confidently order build an AR-15 from scratch. It is divided into more than 50 segments that allow you to watch just the part you need without fast forwarding or rewinding through a huge file.

Brownell's is also offering the same series on pdf files for you to download.

You can also order an AR-15 catalog from the site, or by phone at 1(800)741-0015, just mention code #PEK.

Remember that, the next time you shop for parts.

Best download and save all you can on home building.

I'm pretty sure that there is some obscure legislation somewhere (eg "child protection" or "anti terrorism")that could be used take all that sort of stuff off the net almost overnight.

Bear in mind too that the British Govt has even looked into the possibility of registering and licensing home workshops.

Hopefully the opinion polls are wrong!

I'm looking at a 4-6 week back order for stripped lower receivers at every site I've checked. So I don't think it's a "claim" if dealers say that they're hard to get. I've also found that most companies show "out of stock" for just about every type of barrel and bolt as well.

Excellent point Xavier! The AR is not hard to build. One recommendation is an ambidextrious magazine release, especially for lefties... They can be found at http://norgon.com/ I got one and love it.

I just went to the gun show yesterday and bought a mees of parts to finish my build. Now all I need is a stripped lower.

It's helpful that I have a buddy who spent 5 years working in a Marine Corps armory to assist me build it.

Here in Calif. We have to build our ARs from the ground up. At least the lowers. It's the only way to legally get one into the State. Even then they are pretty much nuetered because the magazine has to be pinned in place so you can't remove it without the use of a tool. It was a great introduction to tabletop gunsmithing though.

I prefer my shotgun for any home defense scenarios. Of course if the S ever totally HTF, the ARs magazine pin is easily replaced with the standard magazine catch.

I really like the simple IDF carbine configuration.

Thank you. Tomorrow evening I will know exactly how much time I have to exercise my 2nd Amendment right and if it has to be done quickly you have just given me an invaluable resource.

interesting quote from Dr. Piazza
The Life Cycle of a Nation
‘The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations from the beginning of history, has been about 200 years.those nations always progressed through the following sequence:

1. from bondage to spiritual faith;
2. from spiritual faith to great courage;
3. from courage to liberty;
4. from liberty to abundance;
5. from abundance to complacency;
6. from complacency to apathy;
7. from apathy to dependence;
8. from dependence back into bondage.

No stocking on ARs for me. I have two SKSes and I'm working on a M1 purchase.

That being said, at the gunshow this weekend, basic Bushmasters were going for about 700 flat (+sales tax), and tables were stocked with uppers, lowers, complete rifles, and miscelany parts. I didn't see much in the way of price gouging. In fact, they all seemed a bit lower in price than at previous shows.

Cali guy, the Keltec SU16 isn't banned, and can take AR "pre-ban" mags.

That is why I'm taking Friday off and flying to Tulsa... At least there, I "know" there will be plenty of parts. Depending on what happens, this may be the last BIG gun show in the US.

Not sure how this works but http://www.genderanalyzer.com/ thinks "Xavier Thoughts" is written by a woman! (Same for the family web page I [male] wrote.)
Go figure...

Which, sadly, is useful only if one had those magazines before 2000 -- CA has this "large-capacity" magazine ban.
