Build an AR-15 Rifle Shopping / Parts List, My First DIY with Prices

UPDATE 01/04/2014
Installed canted sights and replaced low profile gas block with a dual rail block. I’m left handed, BTW.

UPDATE 12/27/2013
Switched out to the UTG Pro Slim Handguard.

UPDATE 12/15/2013
Here’s a picture of it with all the attachments (minus the bipod which I’ll put on later)

ORIGINAL POST
At the bottom is the shopping list for the items I purchased to build my first AR-15. For the Upper and Lower Components, and for a 20″ Barreled AR-15, it cost about $700.00. Building your own, even if it’s just purchasing pre-assembled uppers and lowers, is the most cost effective method. I probably would had gone with the pre-assembled route, but Palmetto State Armory had Black Friday deals that were so good it was more cost effective for me to build it from scratch.

PRIORITIES

  1. Price
  2. Flexibility
  3. Accuracy
  4. Power
  5. Range
  6. Weight
  7. Looks
