    I tried to build one for $600 and it turned into $1100 really fast. I just couldn't stand the really cheap stuff.

    Really will depend if you include optics in the price and what kind if you do. Optics go from $30 to $2000+

    Cheapest I made one for was $55o but took time to find parts on sale or free shipping, bought a complete cmmg lower(25o) and went from there. Spent over 2ooo on building 2 ar pistols. If you want top quality I would say real close to 1ooo$.

    for that price might as well purchase a prebuilt?
    2300 and you get your self a SCAR 16s

    $979.99 for a bush master AR15
    or find your self a lower you want to achive your goal with, assuming you have one for the weapon
