Help me spend my money!

Recommended Posts

So the wife gave me the go ahead to use the tax return to finish my .260 rem. I need your guy's help in finding the most inexpensive quality parts and the cheapest place to purchase them. 😉

What I need still.

  • Charging handle- I like simple and hope to spend around $20.
  • VG6 Epsilon 65 muzzle brake- found a few places for $66-$72, anyone know of cheaper?
  • .875 low profile gas block- hoping to spend about $30 there.

My barrel, gas tube, and bcg is already taken care of. so just need some help with those last 3 pieces. When it comes to buying gun parts, I know you guys wont let me down. 😛

Here are a few choices in that budget, no experience with them myself;

Well, I may never hear you say THAT again, so I'm getting in this one...   :lmao:

Strike Industries for the charging handle.  Primary Arms has a very decent price for it, but if you want to shop around, search for THIS ONE...

Id say this, though - on something with a magnified optic, and extended latch makes it a HELL of alot easier, so I'd search for this one instead, for a few bucks more.  This is straight from Strike, but you can look around.  I'll try to find something cheaper on it - but Primary Arms doesn't seem to have it right now...  This bitch, right here:

Here's the extended one on Optics Planet for $42 - scroll down:

VG6 Epsilon 65 is a badass muzzle device, good choice.  If you found it for $66, snatch it.  I see it for $72 at a few places, and my price on Brownells for it is $65 - so if you found it for $66, getthe damn thing already.  It's a $100 brake. 

Here's a $15 gas block:
