Thinking about building an AR-15 or AR-10 - Hi Mods please move thread ouf of here
I just want to get some advice from some folks in here. I'm looking at building an AR or maybe even buying one already built. I'm not looking for something that is expensive, and nothing cheap either. I want something that is reliable even in an emergency situation. I read in here that cheap parts are prone to failure while higher end/expensive parts, you are paying for the name.
I'm looking at the posts and threads on the subject matter but it seems people have different opinions. So I want to know is it cheaper to build an AR-10 or AR-15 or just buy one that is already built (like from Turners/Big 5)? I want something that is affordable and reliable. I would like to hear from the experts that bought fully built or have built AR-10s and AR-15s. What are the pros and cons? Thanks in advance for you responses.
PS: I guess you can factor in the ammo too, I know 308 is more expensive than .223 so maybe owning an AR-10 is more expensive in the long run?
