So I was an average gun kinda guy (24 year old with a full time bank job and full time student) who went to the shooting range at least once a week (BFL!!) to fire off my G19 and Ruger MarkIII. I began to ask a few guys some questions about OLLs. I got different answers to almost every question so I started to dig into stuff on my own...then I found this place and this thread:http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?t=26726&highlight=223

I walked into a gun show to buy ammo and maybe some other cool stuff... I walked up to J&J's table and I was instantly sold on a Spikes tactical OLL. The price of $150. That's it? I jumped on it! I told myself I'll slowly build my rifle over a long time and I'll just pick up a couple things for it for now. I went to pick it up and that same day I ordered my upper from RifleGear.com
All of a sudden I was at the next gun show to buy the rest of my parts...

Spikes Tactical lower- $150
RRA LPK w/ 2 Stage trigger- $150
Magpul MIAD grip- $50
Magpul CTR mil spec kit - $150
B-15- $30
Upper: CMMG
16 inch mid length gas system medcon- $550
MI Front tower sight- $150
MI Rear low profile sight- $120
MI free float handgaurds- $200
Magpul rail protectors- $40
Eotech- $390

The rest is history. I've already started to plan my next build.

I love that H&K style colored selector lower -- I've got the same style coming for my DDAX builds! Great looking gun! It's got me all excited!

BRD is highly contagious. We're all infected! :eek:

Nice job,
yeah it can add up but it pays off to look for the deals. Group purchases are great too. If you get a gun the way you want it then its well worth it.

Try a search on the web for "X item" on group purchase. I scored big with my build. $99 spikes lower $95 spikes upper. Prices did not include shipping and DROS.

I believe there is an ammo GP somewhere.

Thanks guys! I love my rifle and I can't wait to take it out to angeles. Do ammo group buys come up? Other than lowers and whole firearms what other kinds come up often?

Great looking upper. I am gonna build my second AR to be very much like yours!

I ordered my CMMG 16" Medcon upper with the mid-length system. Gotta get my lower, magpul stock, and Eotech next :)

Great choice! I have that very same upper, never a problem!

You know that when you are fully infected with BRD the side effects can range from great feelings of accomplishment, cold chills as you rip off a mag load full, *****ly heat from busting objects down range, to just down out withdrawels that you need to build another one and fast. And by the way that is one sick looking rifle. Very nice job for your first build.

Nice man.. I'm on my way to build my first.. I told myself I wouldn't.. (for some reason I had enough with ar's when I came back from Iraq) But for some reason, I'm getting that warm and fuzzy feeling again.. lol.. Good job dude..
