    It`s entirely possible I`ve posted this before (It`s late and I don`t remember) so please don`t hesitate to delete this thread if I`ve been over this before, mods.


    It`s a running theme in my arsenal to get good stuff for cheap. Take for example my $100 28/30. If you rather, examine the $100 Swede M94 Mauser or the $50 Spanish Mauser 1893. Now there`s this. The $600 SAA AR-15. 16-inch 1:7 twist 5.56 barrel, MOE furniture (dyed a blue-green shade), MBUS rear, MIAD grip core for firing pins. Nameless BCG and CH. Whomever had it before I did lubed the hell out of it, but took very good care of the rifle. There are a few mashes on the softer sections of plastic and a couple scratches in the metal but I couldn`t pass up a near-new AR for $600 OTD. I kinda hate the first photos I took so please direct all hate mail for the photo filters to my PM inbox. Far as the color goes, I like to think the previous owner was a Jacksonville Jaguars fan. I like to call it the Makita AR though.

    How well does it shoot and any further plans for it? Or just keeping it as is?

    As a longtime Makita abuser, that's pretty neat.

    If they only did 8 screws a minute, it'd be worth it just to see the look on people's faces... LOL

    I intend to swap out the buttstock with a B5 SOPMOD and install a free-float rail gifted from a buddy. The real bear is going to be the barrel I want to install: a 16-inch Wylde chamber match grade with a 1:8 twist.
    And the thing in the stock which tells time.

    A good deal is a good deal.
    I'd buy a pink AR for the right price.

    That`s what someone on TFB said. He saw a Colt 6920 (I think) on the rack for months as price kept dropping from $850 because it had hot pink handguards.

    Also I`m toying with the idea of seeing if I can trade off the handguards, buttstock and grip for a single really nice stock. JIC anyone really likes the shade.
