Rowdy's range build

Postby J_dazzle23 » Fri 20 Nov 2015 10:44 pm

Just sold a 16 inch ar-15 that was way too heavy, and finished this 18 inch SPR-type build with the help of the guys down here at rowdy's range. Awesome setup and all for about 1050 bucks.

Upper, bcg and barrel are from Anderson, billet lower from new frontier, stock from DD and comp, rail from strike industries.

The rail was a sweet little gem to find. 9 ounces for a 15 inch rail. I like it better than the Troy alpha rail for half the price.

All in all, minus the scope and mount it came in at 7 pounds 2 ounces.

If you get the chance to hit these guys up, I recommend it.

That looks pretty darn good! Have you had a chance to shoot it yet?

I haven't yet! Other than the test shots we took after assembly. I'm excited to get out and start pushing 400 or so yards with it.

Thanks for the kind words :)

That's awesome! I love the red charging handle. I personally want a 16-in carbine length.

Looks good! I like the sleek design. Storage compartment in the pistol grip???

They do tend to accumulate pounds when you add all kinds of accessories... and then don't forget the batteries!!! :roll:

A 20 lb. AR is a lot to lug around... and much harder to navigate those tactical courses with!

TOTALLY agree. When a little 223 pea shooter is heavier to carry than a 7mm or 300wm .....I think we forget what the point is. I see guys running a ton of crap hanging on their ar15 and I hope they realize they actually have to carry that around everywhere they are using it...no Bueno :P

Storage in the pistol grip. K2+ from magpul.

I am in good ol' STG, but next on my list of purchases is a CCW for my wife, a new CCW for me (carrying a full size Glock is a pain), and then a shotgun.

That's a good looking build. And it looks like you used a few of the same parts that I chose for mine. Well done!

Ok so I know this won't be everyone's cup of tea, but I thought I would throw on an update. Swapped out the rail down here for the new version- rowdys range in st George did it for me and just charged the ten dollar difference. Red buffer tube and mag release button will be next week, then I think I'll be done modifying this one![img]http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/16/01/10/f204159ec783c679f403a83e6ce1b379.jpg[/img][img]http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/16/01/10/ee63eb912075eff394456d37851c2aa3.jpg[/img]

Rowdy's range build

Postby J_dazzle23 » Thu 17 Mar 2016 3:45 pm

Alright, so since I have ADD when it comes to guns and I just cycle through them, I'm thinking of putting this one up for sale. (Hehehehehe)

If you guys were in the market, what would you pay for a frankengun like this(being built by a shop?)

Anderson forged upper
New frontier billet lower
Anderson 18 inch 1/8 Wylde fluted barrel
Magpul grip
Strike industries buffer tube, rail charging handle
Daniel defense stock
Chrome bcg
M4 feed ramps, Yada Yada Yada
Strike industries checkmate comp
Brand new Leopold vx2 3x9 scope

Thoughts on fair pricing?
