This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

So largely done. I just need to get the flashlight on it.


I added the foregrip with brace, QD mounts for the sling (but I need to add a QD mount backplate to the stock, not a big fan of using a regular strap. Besides I got these kickass paracord hooks I wanna use them. I have the Magpul flip-up sites on there (depressed).


But big change is I decided against the SIG Romeo Optic... and went with something more aggressive (and a lot more expensive). I got the VORTEX Strikefire II optic Red/Green dot. It's pretty sweet. If I make any more upgrades at this point aside from the flashlight, it'll be a suppressor.


But that's down the line.

Beautiful weapon. I'd be a little intimidated by the maintenance since it would be new to me.

That's a great looking scope.  I'm looking for one for my AR.

Hawk -


So you are the perfect person to build your own AR. The process will utterly dispel every myth about firearms, but it will instill an intrinsic respect for what they are, and how they can be used recreationally, and yes, first and foremost for self-defense.


Maintenance of your firearms is a piece of cake if you go through the relatively simple process of learning to build one.


That one in the image is my first AR I built. I learned literally from watching a few YouTube videos and did some research on the parts and whittled it down to what I was willing to pay, and for what my primary need for it was for (its made to be an all-around home-defense/hunting rifle).


It's very easy and rewarding. Now you *can* go down a lot of rabbit-holes in terms of design, but you can keep it nice and basic, pick good parts (most of which you can buy in kits) and put the whole thing together in about 45-minutes (that how long it took me in my first attempt). It's *easy* but I should tell you that there is some money you'll have to put in to buy tools, etc. that will affect your build-design.


Otherwise you can try to hunt down a good brand-name depending on your budget. But I *highly* recommend going to your local range and take some classes. You shouldn't be afraid your firearm, you need to understand how they operate and always respect them.


@The Spaniard
Yeah Vortex is a *very* nice brand. But I'd recommend a basic SIG Romeo Red-Dot if you're just looking - you cant' beat the price/quality ratio. They're very affordable and very high-quality. Vortex is very high quality, and can get very expensive. I got an extremely good deal on that one above. My next build I'm doing I'll likely put a SIG Romeo on it (it's going to be an AR-pistol) and call it a day, while I move on to my next thing.

Goddamn, Tenbones! Your AR there is *SWEET*!!! I love it, brother! You must have enjoyed putting that bad boy together, huh? So many sweet goodies for it, too!

Maybe someday. For now I have a simple Mossberg pump shotgun. My money is going into helping my elderly parents out of near Chicago. The neighborhood is bad and dangerous and they can't keep up with their house.


I appreciate the encouragement. Besides, if Trump wins again, maybe there will be some stability to the gun supply. I keep hearing stores are wiped out.
