2018 AR-15 Build for a Cause

Sun Apr 01, 2018 3:48 pm

With the WaGuns birthday behind us, I would like to take this opportunity to build a gun for a worthy cause. My hope is that we can make a really cool rifle, generate some significant $ for a charity and show our support to others.

Here is my what we have so far.

I have left over parts from the AR raffle. You don't even need to pry them from my cold dead hands. Mostly small parts, I'll send you a pic.

Somebody hasn’t read the build sheet in the OP. :)

I have a new-in-package AR Stoner lower parts kit, minus the fire control group and buffer tube assembly. I wouldn't mind donating it to the cause.

I also have a brand new PSA mil-spec trigger that I installed and then removed before ever firing it (came with one of their rifle kits). It's obviously nothing special, but the price is right.

Finally, I have new/never used MagPul MOE parts (pistol grip and trigger guard) that I can throw in to complete the LPK. And I have a PSA carbine buffer and receiver end plate; I just don't have the buffer tube, spring, or castle nut.

LPK is needed. We have the stock and buffer assembly worked out. Let me know how I can get it from you. Also, thank you for your support.

Is reading a requirement? I'm just here for the pics. :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO:

I can throw in 2 New Pmag 30 AR/M4 gen 2 magazines if needed. :bigsmile:

Jaime,

I have an Aero Precision AR15 Enhanced Gen 2 M-LOK Handguard in 15" length. It's brand new but I do not have the BAR nut for it as I intended on attaching it to an enhanced M4E1 upper receiver. I'll donate the rail if you want it. Let me know.

Thank you for the offer. Looks familiar...

Will this work with the bear creek upper though? I thought the “e” versions only mate with the Aero Uppers? I will have to investigate a bit.

Reading is not a requirement which is why I put pictures. Yes, we could use some mags so the person winning this will have a good start.

It will work fine with a Bear creek upper but as I said, "You will need a BAR nut" to use as the barrel nut. They can be found as cheap as $20 and for as much as $40. It's here if you want it.

Here is a link to a BAR nut for sale at GRO but someone here may have one they could donate too.

This one is $26 but I've never bought from this vendor:
