Cheap AR

I just got my first varmint rifle. I had gone back and forth between a bolt gun and an AR for a long time before getting it. I got a heavy barreled bolt action 223. I am now craving an AR more than ever.

It would have to be dirt cheap though. Anyone looking to get rid of one... even if it doesn't necessarily shoot under MOA? I guess it needs to shoot plinking accurate though.

The cheapest you can go is to

The cheapest you can go is to built one yourself. It's a lot fun, too. You can by everything but the lower receiver. You'll need an FFl to buy the receiver. Everything else can be bought thru Midway, Brownells or other online sellers.

What should I expect to pay

What should I expect to pay if I build it on my own. I'm assuming their isn't a need for a gunsmith in the process of building it or it wouldn't be very cheap?

I find that hard to believe.

I find that hard to believe. I can't build one that cheap. What's his secret? The thing about building it yourself, you can buy parts as you go. You don't have to buy everything at 1 time.
