    So I've sold my AR pending funds which gives me about 600 bucks to work with. I'm currently working on selling my Mosin plus 800 rounds i have left. which should put me around 1200 total. Now I'll need to get an optic as well and i was thinking the Vortex Strike Eagle 1-8

    Have you shot behind it and will it do what you want for your intended purposes?

    I’ve got Burris, Primary Arms, and Vortex optics right now. I’m a fan of the PA SLX in 5x prism for the price point. Near ACOG capability for under $350.

    I’ve said it before around here, but my buddy has a 4.6 pound AR RIFLE (with holosun dot) he put together for under $1100.
    It can be done, you just have to plan it out and shop the sales.

    A few points, though maybe too late. Watch out with bad levers. They can cause malfunctions

    Nib is nice, but any added lubricity to the carrier rails will get worn off after a few mags.

    You could have saved a bit and gotten an MBT 2s instead of Geissele. The g2s is nice, but the larue is cheaper, and is a bit better laid out

    Bcm barrels can be quite accurate, but some can be real dogs. For the price, faxon makes good options, and if you want to spend 200 or so on a barrel, larue is within reach.

    Be careful with luthar stuff. Of 4 a1 sight parts kits, i was able to get 2 sets that went together correctly.

    I'd personally get like an a2 flash hider, and get a nicer handguard.

    Hmmmm I’ve not seen any loss of the NIB coating on my 300 blackout after thousand of rounds.

    Had to take the gas block back because it's too small for the gas tube even though they are both spikes. So that's minus 26.89 buy + 91 for the new gas block which is titanium.

    Question. Do I have to put on the forward assist? Does it change the functionality if I leave it out?

    No, you don’t need the FA. They sell a plug that will fill it.
