Building ARs has really taken off here in WA thanks to the new I-1639 law. If you want to buy any semi-auto rifle you now have to take a so-called "safety course" and go through a two-week waiting period. But if you buy just the stripped lower it's just as easy as buying a bolt-action rifle, since it's technically not a semi-auto at that stage. Some shops have also been selling complete ARs but with a solid gas block, making it a "bolt action" rifle by definition. Just replace the gas block and you're back in business. As much as we all hate these stupid gun laws, I have to admit it's quite amusing when I see people outsmart the system.I bought my first one then ended up selling it a few years later.
Just built one a few weeks ago. That was so much fun that I will probably build from now on.
Classic12, what are the laws for having full autos in Switzerland?
Not me. I'm Texan. We can but anything we want any time we want,'How many newbies purchased there first new/used ar-15’s?'
Probably all of them, rather than stealing them.
'I been on the fence about buying one for decades, there on the ban list but not sure if I can own one or not?'
I guess that depends on your state and local laws along with your status as a potential gun buyer.
Cool father and son experience.Been shooting them for years and this weekend I built my first one. My son bought a PSA kit and said here dad put this together for me.
It was a fun and sometimes frustrating experience LOL. I'm sure most could have done it faster but I took my time and watched A LOT of youtube videos.
Now that I have this one done maybe I will build a ar pistol next.
