  5. Build an AR 15 or buy an already complete one

    Rifle Discussion
    My question is simple, is it cheaper to buy an AR 15 already built or to build my own from scratch and order all the parts to it? I am looking at getting into the AR world and don't know a whole lot about them. Any help and suggestions would be appreciated.

    Rifle Discussion
    I wanted to build a fixed stock AK-47, but the only kit I could find was an underfolder kit.

Also, what...

    Question #1) If I buy a SBR permit, do I still have to follow 922r rules while building my PPS-43? Question #2) Can you please tell me what trigger assemblies will work with the PPS-43C, and also where to buy them. I want to make sure I have only 10 foreign parts. Thanks, John
  12. Building a PPS-43

    Gun Laws - News - Rights
    I have located a parts kit, barrel, and receiver repair section, I don't know how to weld, but a friend of mine does. Would it be legal to have my friend weld the gun together? The gun I would build would be semi auto.
