Building a sub 6lbs AR-15


Recommended Posts

My next build for May is gonna be a sub 6lbs 14.5" AR-15. I've already gotten all the parts chosen except for upper receiver. I can't find any regular uppers without forward assists and I'm torn between a regular upper w/ forward assist and shell deflector and a Vltor MUR-1S without forward assist. Anyone with any insight between the 2 regarding weight would be greatly appreciated.

I hear ya Rene. I'm keeping my eyes open for almost any kind of quality lowers these days. And the Aero stuff is pretty good (in my opinion). We the people, in my fcuked up state, only have until october to snag as much as we can......until big brother wags his finger and says that we shouldn't have these dangerous "scary lookin" things. Keep in mind that our "7 day wait" is up to about 60 days now. Hell....I've got three "15" lowers sitting on ice at my gun pusher....plus I've got him looking for "10" lowers (I could really use at least 2 of them). My plan is to get as many as I can afford and just build them out later. Cause it's (more than likely) gonna be years, if ever, before we can get another governor in office to repeal this crazy s h i t.

I gotta get out of this fuckin place. Problem is.....the job is here. Once again.........................Wyoming calls my name for my retirement years. Can't come fast enough. Only about another 20. AAaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh!! <laughs>
