Nice, looks like you are ready to go. Not quite ready myself. Gonna take an act of God, but I have my eyes on an AR. Hope to get it early next year, unless Obozo doesn't give my money back to me.

Its a toss up really.

I've used DPMS the most but, Rock River and Bushmaster are just as nice. I like wilson barrels and Rock River lower internals. And its hard to beat Young MFG. and their National Match Chrome Bolt carrier assembly! I avoid Colt due to price. Paying for a name dosen't make a better weapon.

I'm a refrigeration mechanic. I've worked on all my cars, trucks, motorcycles and everything else under the sun. Is there any reason I could NOT build one myself? I just need some guidance. I obviously clean all mu guns.

Yes you can!

I'm sure with your mechanical background you can figure out even the tricky parts. There are lots of sites with helpful hints and even how-to videos. I can help you as well. Besides is lots of fun crawling around on the carpet looking for a tiny pin detent after you slip and the spring sends it flying like a rocket across the room! Seriously though it saves you lots a cash. The varmint model I just built cost me $619.00 before the scope. Try buying a 24 in free floated heavy barrel AR for that much!

The vest

Vest is actually a Galati I picked up on Gunbroker new in package for $20.00. I would like to upgrade to something more customizable (is that a word) in the near future.

ryo own two DPMS Panther Rifles. the Mini SASS and the LRT SASS, and am also about to buy another one, the DPMS Panther Arctic Rifle, that is specially winterized against sub zero temperatures like ryo's newest rifle, which is dream rifle that am very much proud of. it is the Saab/Bofors FFV AK 5B Basic Designate Marksman's rifle. ryo have wanted this rifle ever since first read about one. you can ask people like Nitris and Greasypaws and Reaper and most of the AK experts here, that this is one of the best if not the very best AK style rifle ever make. hai hai it is base on the FN Herstal FNC but it have significant differences from the FNC such that it almost a different rifle and it is like the FNC only superficially. it's a very fine shooter, but since got it three week ago ryo have not had much opportunity to shoot it cause have been busy at part time job at gun range working big fall tournament for last two weekend. ryo very much agree with you about DPMS parts and rifles.

your friend,

write back soon. btw, agree much with what hkhandgunner say to you about it not being hard at all to build your own rifle. DPMS Panther have make a specialty of this and they offer complete line of parts, manuals, instructions and even have an online help service and a call in phone service. they make wornderful barrels out of high quality exotic alloy stainless steel that is alloy with such materials as vanadium, chromium, molybdenum, and use a very fince high quality phosphated stainless steel material to start with. they make hard milled, cold hammered black aluminum uppers and lowers, and even have a high quality diamond fluted bolt that can be special order as well. you can mix and match their parts with parts from other suppliers. ryo honto like Yankee Hill Machine Company rifle parts and they offer a very fine line or in house design rifles as well, and offer them at among the most reasonable prices of any company that make match quality rifles and components.

your friend alway,
