Oh, and I forgot to mention...

Anytime you can make the statement "My girlfriend wants an AR" it should only take a very short time before that gets converted to "My Wife...".. That's a sign of a good woman! Unless, or course, she has plans to use that AR on you...

A new one that you buy the upper and lower separately should be about $750 .. a complete one about $850. You can find some used ones for around $700 ... and as for building one.. there are at least 3 good threads on that topic in the last 3 or 4 weeks.. just do a search.

get this she doesent want to ever get married or have kids. also she said "you you want to F&%$ some girl just ask and wear a condom and you have to get an std test after"
how great is she.
the weird thing is that ever since she said that i havent wanted to be with anybody else, i think just knowing i can takes away the desire she has three handguns: Naa 22lr, xd9 service, cobra entiprises 380

you can get a complete Rock River arms for about $730.

My bro-in-law just got one from the distibuter here in NH

16" barrel, collapse stock, couple of mags and a hard case.

I have a Bushmaster, If I ever by another I will buy a RRA.

I love my Bushmaster but I would buy the RRA just because.

One cannot argue with the "just because" argument! It's as solid a reason as they come!

Sounds too good to be true buddy. My bet is that is just a nice way of saying that is what she is doing.

From my research on AR-15 prices, it costs less money to just buy a complete upper and a complete lower and pin them together yourself than it does to build one yourself (or buy a complete ready-to-fire rifle). I had been looking at all RRA components: 20" Chro-mo barrel, A3 flattop, standard stock and hand guard and grip, NM trigger group, for about $750. That price was from about 2 years ago, but it was what I wanted and from the same internet gun store.

Yes, The only reason why I have not yet is because I don't want another AR in .223.

I want something a little flatter shooting and more accurate...

I've put together a complete AR lower for $200 and I have a $400 upper to put together. You can build one for not much more if you look around. I'll post lower pics soon!

If she isn't going to use it very much and you don't have one yourself then why not buy yourself the AR and let her shoot it whenever she wants.

Also, it will still be yours if for some reason things don't work out. Hey, she still gets to keep the engagement ring by law in most states. ;)

Mean no disrespect, just thinking ahead here. :D

They had Bushmaster M4geries at the show this weekend for $750 (non-removable handle) and $789 (removable handle). I'd get one of these before I messed around with something cheap or try to build something. Then you can tell others that you spent the weekend playing around with the GF's bushy.

check the equipment exchange on ar15.com for used stuff. I just got a stag lower, magpul CTR stock, Magpul MAID grip complete lower for $285. I added a $350 KISS Sabre defense 14.5" upper and a $100 LMT BCG and CH and now have an awesome basic setup as my plinker(actually way to nice for just that) for $750. You can do more basic on the lower and get by cheaper. I will however say its light enough for my fiance and she loves the ceiner .22lr conversion kit as it has less bite. Great way to introduce them to shooting and functioning an ar15

That's not permission... that's a dare. Do it and you'll see how she really feels about it, lol.
