Roughly how much does it cost to build an AR-15 at home? For the bragging rights, I'd like to build my own custom AR-15.Not looking for the cheapest everything, and not to most expensive either, roughly how much would you think it'd cost to build a.223 AR-15 (specialty tools included, because i don't have any) with an adjustable stock and floating accessory rail. not including, up front, specialty sights/optics or a front grip.

Answer 1

I think you could easily do this for $1,500 if you can find a lower receiver anywhere.

Answer 2

I built one a couple years ago for about $600. Look into bushmaster. although I'm sure prices have gone up in the last couple of years. If I remember correctly the lower Receiver was about $250 and that was the most expensive part. Good luck!!

Answer 3

You should be able to build yourself one for roughly $700-$900 (including tools) if you scour the internet for the lowest prices of the components that you choose to use for it.

Brownells.com has virtually every tool you can imagine for doing assembly work or maintenance on the AR-15 type rifles.

Good luck -

Answer 4

a build is actually pretty expensive since you want the best parts for your rifle. Why not just get a factory made rifle for around $800 and you can upgrade from there on

Answer 5

I built this basic lightweight AR15 Carbine for about a Spike's lower with DPMS parts kit and carbine stock with a MIAD pistol grip: @ 250$

The upper is a Bushmaster 16" carbine upper with a RRA tactical handle as a rear sight. I had the handle laying around other wise I would have gotten a flip up BUIS. The upper cost 350$ from Bushmaster.

It's sporting a windowed PMAG that I got before the panic buying for about 14$.

Answer 6

6 Months ago I would have said $600....... Now there are shortages of rifles and parts.... Receivers that were $100 a year ago I see now for $200 on up......

Figure about $1200 with all the accessories and tools you want.....

Others may / will disagree with me but if I were you buy your first rifle complete and put together...... Build your second one.....

A good resource for kits if you want to build

Answer 7

I build match AR-15's.

The basic tools that will allow you to assemble a blemish free rifle that looks professionall made will run you about $400.

You will need the Brownel's trigger jig to proplerly mate the hammer and sear......it's not a cheap date -. and since you will botch it the first and second time from lack of experience, along with the hammer pin and spring - best to buy three of these.

There are many good books that will walk you though the assembly process step by step - buy them. You cannot build one by simply looking at an exploded diagram.

Currently the market is flooded with AR kit guns. These are guns with brand name lowers bought by folks in the last 20 months hoping to make a killing selling them after a ban. Well, these guys can't hang on to 40-60 lowers they have....... and now they are flooding into the market. You get a name brand lower with $300-$400 in cheap parts assembled badly and being sold as a factory rifle for $1500+. Most gun shops won't touch one of them, or, even let you put a kit gun on consignment any more because of this.

Hope this helps

Feel free to email me your AR-15 building questions.

Answer 8

Before the Obama scare, it cost me a total of $600.00. Post Obama, I can't find a parts package anywhere. My best estimate right now is $900.00 with a substantial wait for back orders. Think I'm gonna sell all my firearms and go back to making bows, sling shots and throwing sticks!

shoot safe

Answer 9
