I’m new to the gun world and I was looking into buying an AR-15 for plinking, varmint hunting and all around good times. I had been doing some research and I had determined that building my own from a kit would be a very rewarding experience. It would help me learn about the gun and give me a sense of accomplishment from what I had built.
When I got my kit, I didn’t realize that it would be as overwhelming as it was going to be. I had no punches and I felt very under-prepared. After some calls to a friend I got all of the punches that were needed and I was ready to get started. I found some videos online and I also printed out the assembly guide from ar15.com. After about 3 hours and a few tense minutes searching for springs that have shot off during the assembly, it was completed. I finally had my AR built! It was a very rewarding experience and I definitely recommend it to anyone, even people that aren’t good with tools (i’m not a handyman).
I would also like to thank Lincoln Tactical. I was having a difficult time finding any FDE Pmags for my build. I was afraid that I was going to get my rifle built and not have any magazines!! I called Lincoln Tactical on a Wednesday. On Friday morning I had two PMags at my house. I was extremely impressed with their customer service!! Thanks, Jamy Casteel
