    Why didn't you are AR jerks warn me not to build my own AR!?!? I know many of you will say you did warn me, but I mean why didn't you really warn me. As in, DON'T DO IT!!! You will ruin your life!

    I am just finishing building my AR pistol today (which turned out awesome) and I am already heading over to Curt's with a list of things I need for my next build.

    When I bought my first ones I did not think much about them. I never even shot them. I just bought them to have just in case...but now that I built my own to the exact way I want it I am hooked. I even ordered another 1000 rounds of ammo today. These things are like crack when you build them yourself.

    ARs are just stepping stones. I enjoy building FALs and AKs much more, even though it is always for someone else.

    Actually, I just listed the AR's I bought earlier. The factory models just seem so "generic" now after building one custom.

    PS: Here are a couple really crappy cell pix I took so you can get the idea of what the finished pistol will look like. I will get better pix and a vid once it is completed. You can't see it here but the barrel is stainless and looks cool through the handguard.

    It is addictive. I'm waiting on contract payment and then my .300 Blackout will get finished.

    A pistol is a pistol. WA allows you to conceal carry pistols with permit.

    O hai PP! I wanted to warn you about building your own AR. It has been known to inspire driving up discretionary spending in ones' household.

    What length is the barrel on that pistol? Is it 10.5 incher? I am thinking of doing my next pistol with one that size or do one with an 11.5" so i can put a stock on it since it would be over 26 inches long.

    Yes, it's a 10.5" barrel with a mid-length DD 9" Omega rail covering the YHM low profile gas block. Looks sick from the front.
