Ok so i'm freaking out over the 2014 reg on long guns so only thing missing from my arsenal of guns was a 556 ar15, I pondered on what was best assemble one from parts or just buy one. Well I just bought one from TRACY RIFLE AND PISTOL.
Its a S&W mp15 and for the buck it's a great deal. I'm not a noob to AR's so I know this ain't cream of the crop but its definitely gonna be fun I just hope it doesnt feel all lonely cause all my AK's in the safe.

These guys are awesome! I've bought stuff from them before but now I feel I need to tell you how great they are. All AR15's are on sale and theyre paying dro's too. The sale ends sunday so get down there and get your ar and theyre giving you a free pmag a 40 rounds pmc ammo. They wont give me a deal on the vz58 but I want to thank them for being a great gun store! The rest of you gun stores should take note and follow suit!

Question-
Why would you want a top dollar trigger in a plinking AR that you did not spend a lot on?

The Geissele SSA is really sweet. I have not tried many AR triggers, but this one feels really nice.

Also, Bill Springfield sells standard AR triggers that he has given a trigger job. I bought one, but have yet to install it. It is only $85 for a 4lb setup, which is half of what the Geissele SSA will set you back.

Well hmm because I want a silky trigger and not a five pound dead weight lol plus I can still use this lower for my 458 socom upper I ordered. Trigger pull is everything to me.

well I guess I did not think of that, I just up & buy a new lower for a different set up.
I don't like to share.

I use to be that way in my ar days 8 ar's adorned my safe but slowly I dumped em all for various ak's. Ive been wanting to do a 458 socom for a while but I dont reload so it made no sense but with 2014 reg coming I figure I better get an ar now rather than wait for prices to sky rocket again and I can fully strip out this lower and use better lpk anyway so I went to tracy rifle n pistol to buy a lower only and ended buying a whole set up. Will I keep it as is? I dont know but thats the beuty of the ar I can make it what I want!
Holy crap I sound like a fanboy again lmao

I hear you, I stocked up on lowers because of that BS going on no matter how many emails I sent that guy. Good luck with your 458. Who knows you might to just invest in some lowers again, or I can trade you one of mine for an AK :eek:

Congadulations. I was wondering when you were gonna come back to the light side of the force. ;) JK'ing I want an AK as well.

Maybe you should pick up a lower just incase you want another one in the future.nn

...I kinda hate you right now. I've been wanting a .458 upper to stick on my completed 80%, but I'm having trouble parting with my hard earned cash.

Lmfao this aint my first AR last year I had 8 ar's in the safe rra's, dd, jd, n multiple others then I shot a rusted ak well i've owned over 15 AR's now the only one I have is the s&w I bought yesterday but i'm bout to buy some lowers here soon just to have them.
Also I did a year of research on .50b or 458socom and the socom from all my reading and talking seems to be the better round + I never shot a 600gr bullet before.

you are going to have to spend a lot of money on an AR trigger to get in near the quality of that tapco g2 trigger lol.

The AKs are going to bully your AR lol. Nice though! When I was AR shopping I looked at it but then I fell in love with my LMT. It was love at first sight lol.

Nice rifle. A great choice. It's got very respectable specs. Excellent duty/service type rifle.

Lmfao never! I'm building another one on tuesday! And i've already started looking for a new one. See the AK47/74 can never be repaced .
and since I cant build a ak with a 458socom I had to get another AR cause I been in love with that round since I first heard about it.
