    Why not build it yourself,they are not that difficult.
    I have built/assembled several myself without a single problem.

    Tagged, I want to see who is the best, cuz sometimes second best just isn't good enough.

    You might also want to define "best".

    Do you mean fastest, cheapest, most expensive, best shop, hottest assistant, friendliest, best looking or most knowledgeable? Or something else?

    I suspect the difference between the best Gunsmith in town and some schlub that has the tools will be negligible at best.

    If you don't have the tools, don't try it yourself! One slip with a screwdriver or a punch and you will see that scratch all the way thru the anodizing until the day you sell it.

    Might take me twenty minutes and thats because I would have to clear a spot off my workbench !!!!hehe

    Handguard is from Apex CNC Machine out of White City OR. I really like it and will use them in future builds. If you were closer I would be happy to help.

    Rapid Fire Arms in Sandy has an AR building workshop for first-timers.

    It's really cheap, and you get to build your own rifle with their tools.
