My first build, super budget build. Just to get a shootable rifle cost me roughly $650 with tax/S&H. Just recently painted it in the camo scheme. It's been black up until mid Nov-2013. It's had about 1,500 rounds through it. Always shot higher quality ammo through it like Rem, Fed, and Win. Got the Barrel for free from a buddy, it's an M-16 barrel that still had the cardboard tube in it. Took around 5-6 weeks to build it starting late Last OCT. Installed the barrel and tightened the barrel nut down at Burro Canyon Range and fired the first few rounds through it. It's been a smooth flawless dream come true. Don't care much what it looks like as long as it runs flawlessly and shoots straight. It's a little heavy, but I love it! Pics to come later of my wife's build that I'm starting, unless she really wants it purple. Hmm maybe I can do it in the Army's new A-TACS pattern in black, purple and dark grey...
