Agreed. I've built a couple now, and NOTHING like a simple assembly of an AR.Have you ever built a 1911? It's very different from assembling an ar15.
I think if your feel like you have the skills and patience (and some tools), you should do it. The kits make a lot of sense, so maybe that's a good choice.Thank you for all the responses!
No, I have never built a 1911 but I do want to learn how to put one together.
Also, I want to do my own high polish rust blue. That’s why I want to get the complete kit in the white.
