Working on a few builds still but I'd rather wait it out a little for prices to fall back down.
What's up with your handguards? Im not familiar with your setup...

Price all depends on what components you get. You can buy a $800 M&P or a $2500 LMT.

I put this one together in the last 2 months. The only thing I already had was the lower which costs $80 a few years ago.

BCM 16" Upper
BCM FA BCG
BCM Gunfighter Mod4 Charging Handle
Troy VTAC 13" Rail
Vortex Viper 6-20x44
Vortex Bubble Level
Burris PEPR Scope Mount
Magpul MOE Fixed Stock
Magpul MIAD Grip
CMMG LPK
DS Arms Stock Kit

Total price is approx $1650

With XM193 it shoots about 2MOA but am currently load developing for it and am hoping for 3/4moa.

Just spent about $2100 without optics on my SPR'ish build. Funny thing is I still don't have all the parts that I need to complete it.

My last build started as a budget build and finished at just under $1150+/- (dros shipping etc included)

PSA complete ML upper (minus BCG)
BCM BCG
Vltor CH
PSA Lower
Raddlock BB
PSA magpul LPK
Magpul CTR stock
Magpul handguard
Magpul AFG
1 Magpul 10/30 mag
Magpul MBUS (rear) .. $1150

Since then I added:
AimPoint Pro
Geissele SSA-E
Battlecomp 2.0
Battlearms BAD CASS selector ..
$1850ish

Next build is on a Mega billet lower and if my calculation is right It will be at $2000 without optics

PSA complete upper less rear sight $414 delivered
PSA bcg and handle $196 delivered.
Complete JD Machine lower, Stag LPK, ambi safety $435 incl. deros
So $1045 plus a rear sight. Not too bad for a solid little rifle.

Just built my 1st AR and it totaled around $1200. JD lower, PSA upper, Spikes BCG, Magpul goodies including sights and its featureless.

You just have to shop around and not be in a hurry.

Can't believe 650 for a lower!!!! 750 for a complete upper including BCG isn't horrible deal.
Prices of things are blowing me away, crazy

$1400?? I bought my Colt M4 for $1050. This **** is nuts.

Turners has/had M&P 15 stripped lowers for 159.98 which is about $203.99 OTD

PSA has/had 16" carbine rifle kits complete with LPK and BCG for 599.99.

If you were lucky to pick those up, I reckon its about less than $850 complete with shipping.

My brother's girl friend came with us to the gunshow and on an impulse buy got a AR kit with an 80% lower for $725. 16'' 1/9 twist chrome lined A2 hand guards flat top collapsable stock lower parts kit $623 and a 80% lower $100. Not bad if you ask me.

Just ordered with non-crazy pricing on a Stag Arms model 2 rifle kit and Stag stripped lower receiver - just shy of $775 for a unassembled complete Stag brand rifle. Retail price of this is ~$1050.

My best friend (since 6th grade) who is an FFL dealer will receive it and do the lower assembly for me - all no charge - priceless......!

I spent to much, but got exactly what I wanted. I am very happy with my rifle. Spent a little less on my old ladies and I'm also happy with that build.

Just need a phosphate finished M16 BCG from a reputable company. Will patiently wait for a decent deal.

I'm at $1,292 the most I've ever spent on a firearm and I do not want my wife to ever see this post, ha! Just glad I had a lot of ammo purchased prior to the hysteria.
Some late update info on my build.

For a grand total of $1,471

If you want something very basic, that you never plan on upgrading, then I'd say by a S&W M&P Sport. Turner's has them for $899.99 right now.

My first build I just bought my JD lower for 280 including tax and dros....which is still in jail. Fishing around for a spikes upper seems like i can get one for around 670. So I'm thinking around 1k for a complete build.

Tax & shipping included in prices.

$1313

67 UTG stock & buffer group
10 Mako ambi end plate
100 RRA LPK

Planning to upgrade the iron sight, grip, and trigger guard. add $200.00 to the build, but that will happen slowly & and with serious bargain hunting.

Happy to participate in the discussion.

I have been sitting on my JD lower for about a month now. I may start to build it soon enough but my LR308 build is kind of priority. Even with quality parts, I am glad I am still under on some of these AR15 builds for my LR308.

I ordered everything on PSA, except the tripped lower. Everything will be delivery to me next week.

Lower (local): $100 + $10 tax+ $30 dros = $140

PSA:

BCG: $100
Handle: $20
LPK: $100
Upper: $450
Shipping: $30

So far is $840 with no sights/scope yet. I know I can buy the basic AR15 at that price but this comes out much better spec/I wanted.

I ordered on July 25 and 26. Got everything except:

LPK: UPS was scheduled yesterday but the truck got accident so they reschedule Monday.

Upper: will be here Tuesday. Monday-10 days due for the lower at Turner.
OK thanks, good to know that things are more in stock. I like PSA so I think I'll see what they have in stock and go the same route. Thanks!

I'm still paying...does it ever end? I always have to try something new with mine so that means I'm always buying.

$1100 on my build.

Spikes stripped lower, spikes buffer kit, magpul CTR, spikes enhanced LPK, spikes midlength complete upper and spikes carry handle rear sight.

I wanted a LMT rear sight, but could not find one anywhere.

depends what kind of build you want.

PSA Upper build with mil spec lpk, lower and stock will run you less than $1,000

Then you can change your rail, get a decent red dot sight, get f/r bus, then it'll cost you another $300-700 depending on how expensive your sights and red dot and rail will be.

Too freaking much! My next AR build is going to be a simple A2 or A4 clone. Simple, battle-proven and effective without unnecessary add-ons.

This is my first build:

JD lower- $150 (100+tax+fee)
PSA 14.7" rifle kit- $620 (599+shipping)
Bullet Button- $22 (20+shipping)
Rear sight ????? Need (mbus/troy or a donated carry handle anyone?)

Total: priceless! actually $792+rear sight

Now if you add in the c4 mid cutout rail, aimpoint pro, sling, ergo grip, b5 bravo stock that I want I will probably spend twice that on the accessories, but if I simply add an Mbus rear sight and don't go mall ninja I will be under $850.
