Dude, I started with a $600 CMMG bargain bin AR.

This hobby is crazy expensive especially if you shoot on a regular basis

250 - DD Omega rail
180 - MI Sight Set
100 - PWS FSC556
And next year I want to build another from the ground up.
Couldve spent that money on a KAC SR-15 E3. Amirite?
That's partly my bad
Doesn't that apply to most WMDers?
Complete Stag Lower - $291
CMMG Upper from THT (fag) - $535
Primary Arms RDS and Magnifier - $200

$1086 not including magazines or ammo. Fuck me.
I don't even want to think about it
lol my build.
DPMS forged lower: 100
RRA LPK w/ NM 2stg: 110
hogue grip: 25
magpul CTR w/ tube/buffer/spring: 95
magpul AFG: 35

troy flip rear: 125
TA31RCOM4 w/ larue lt100: 1250 on its way
damn optic more than the rifle
Yeah, I think I need to have the internet guy at my work block your site. I would save a fortune.
okay-so here is the cost of my build so far
RRA complete lower-$300
BCM Upper w/7mags-$700
BCM bcg, ch and rear bus-$335
Tru-glo 2x red dot-$180
and that does not include shipping, tax or the ammo i have ordered
fuck that. my fiance reads shit here definitely not posting build costs
I did that once on my first AR.
I spent the same thing on the two ARs I have now and they'd kill anything just as good.
I have a spreadsheet with all of my firearms expenses. After buying and selling tons of different stuff I've reduced my overall costs but it's still a bunch of money. I don't really think I want to add up all of the costs. It might make me
Edit: It's still not as bad as my car hobby.
Mine probably reads shit here too.
