    I like that a lot. How much money do you think you have it the build to date? Include cost of special tools.


    What is the scope and mount?

    Thanks I really am please with the way it turned out. The scope is a Pentax gameseeker30 4-16x50 and its on a Burris AR P.E.P.R. I plan on changing that scope out at some point. I haven't added up everything but around $1200 is my rough guess amount. Much less if my wife asks lol.

    Thats pretty darn inexpensive if you have used noveske parts. I just looked at a pretty basic colt today at fishermans and it was about $1,200. I'm going back and forth about doing my own build. Bought an Anderson Mfg receiver two weeks ago as a start. Now going in circles trying to figure out what parts to accumulate.
