How to Build an AR


There is no doubt that the AR platforms are one of the most popular rifles on the market today. They come in a wide variety of calibers and set ups, which can usually be found at local gun shops or bigger hunting goods box stores. However, sometimes, as gun enthusiasts, we just want more than what the gun store can offer.

While buying a completely manufactured AR-platform rifle might be the quickest and most logical option to adding another firearm to your collection, the thrill and enjoyment of planning, designing, and assembling your own AR style rifle might be more of what you are looking for. If that is the case, but you do not exactly know where to start, you are in the right place.

Building an AR-platform rifle of your own might be a little intimidating at first glance but can easily be done and could ultimately save you money in the long run. Plus you get the benefit of saying you built your own firearm exactly the way that you wanted it.
