Chefs first AR build

Recommended Posts

So after the Sullivan county coyote contest and hunting with the jerkman for the weekend I decided it was time for me to build my first AR, it is going to be a dual purpose gun built for Predator hunting and long range shooting. I’m pretty sure I decided on 224 valkyrie. Any way I decided to set up my spare bedroom as a office/gun building room. Got a new table and ordered a gunsmithing kit, here are pics of the new set up. I will keep this thread updated as this build moves along. I may also ask for some of your opinions on parts as I move forward

Davidson defense ambi sling end plate

Tactical superiority milspec lower kit

I will not use most of the parts from this kit as I will change out the trigger, grip, safety and maybe even bolt release. That being said I got it for the detents and the springs and will also practice installing these parts before the ones I order come in

Nice, Ar's are very easy to throw together. I can do one in about 15 minutes. That armorers kit is WAY more than you'll ever need. My 6.5 Grendel weighs about 6.5 lbs and was about $350 without optic or sights.

that gun building kit is about a 1/3 of the price i'm willing to pay for the entire gun haha. Also I believe your room is haunted as there appears to be a ghost in the bottom right corner.

good luck, i'll be gladly following along.
