Hello everyone, First AR style firearm I am taking baby steps to get acclimated , I have been doing a lot of reading and cross referencing information so I can start learning more about building and upgrading my own AR-308 i have been eyeballing some complete uppers and complete lowers and I think I have found a match for my first assembly of an AR-308 I certainly don't consider this a build but it is a start to get me acquainted. And for the cost I think I will have a decent entry level rifle. I look forward too getting to know you guys and to learn some valuable information as well, a little about myself... I have 13 years as a cnc/manual machinist, prototyping, long hand programming,set ups, making fixtures and jigs, trouble shooting, mills, lathes with and without live tooling 2, 3 and 4 axis machines. That being said if you are into making your own custom parts and need to pick my brain feel free.
