    So now that you dicks have talked me out of the SKS ;) and showing off the bad ass pics of your AR's, I'm thinking about building one over the next 6 months or so. Doing some looking around, I've found a Stag complete lower with adj stock for ~260. I figure I can buy that and piece together as I find some decent deals or some used stuff comes up.

    I always obsess over larger purchases, so I'd like to do some reading on building AR's and such to make sure this is what I want and to know more about the rifle itself before I start purchasing. I'd also like to see what is junk and what are decent pieces. I've found AR15.com and AR15armory.com. Are there other trusty sites to do some research on as far as options and upgrades for the AR? I want to find out what to stay away from upper and lower wise.

    Also, with talk about assault bans, etc(if they are even likely to occur?), is there a specific part I should pick up now so I don't get caught up in the net and end up unable to finish this if I start it?

    Sorry for all the questions, I just want to be as informed as possible on purchases.

    Thanks.

    WeaponEvolution.com

    Weapon Evolution is by Rainier Arms/Stickman.

    M4carbine.net

    M4 Carbine was formed by a vendor who was banned from AR15.com for price fixing. Professionals seem to prefer this website

    AR15.com

    One of the biggest gun forums on the internet. It's strength and weakness is its size. Because it's big, all the vendors try to get some love and representation there. Because it's big, all the fucking retards from the internet end up there too, and the volume of stupidity frequently overwhelms the voice of intelligence and experience. Uber posters like Molon frequently get shouted down by noob idiots... and that's why uberposters from Arfcom are frequently found on M4Carbine, Weapon Evolution, etc.

    SilenerTalk.com

    Advanced Armament Corp got banned from AR15.com, so their own forums are beefy with AR15 info, with an obvious higher focus on suppressors. It's one of the most direct lines to Knight's Armament Corp.

    Feel free to ask questions here too, as long as you do a quick search beforehand. Almost all of us have (at least) one AR.

    BTW I love my Stag Lower, and $260 is a pretty decent price.

    read this thread: http://m4carbine.net/showthread.php?t=24397

    but take it with a grain of salt. you dont necessarily have to own the specifics of what is laid out, but it'll give you an idea of what is out there.
