Building an AR-15 from an 80% lower build kit doesn’t need to be intimidating. In fact, it’s almost guaranteed that once you build one AR-15, you’ll quickly get the itch to build another. With all the gun control legislation that is currently being pushed, it’s a great time to build before it’s too late.
If you’re unfamiliar with what a build kit is, it is a complete AR-15 rifle that comes with all the parts of the rifle including an 80% lower. Packaged with an 80% lower means that there is no need for a FFL. Our build kits come with everything you need including the 80% lower, AR-15 lower parts kit, buffer assembly, upper assembly, bolt carrier group (BCG), and more. Some of our kits even include the jig to finish out the milling process.
What could be more satisfying (and fun) than the concept of a do-it-yourself gun in a box? With the easy availability of AR-15 build kits, almost anyone can now become their own little virtual firearms factory. Given the long history of AR-15 production and the decades of experience in working out any bugs or flaws, the design as it exists today is extremely modularized and quite easy to assemble into a functional weapon with only a minimal amount of experience or tools.
With a wide assortment of available calibers, barrel lengths and even gun styles (rifle or pistol), there are AR-15 build kits to suit any appetite. The biggest challenge of any modern AR build is not a question of finding the parts to do the job but of making up your mind as to exactly what kind of project you want it to be.
Of course, you don’t have to confine yourself to a single wish list. You can always get your hands on more lowers or even use a variety of AR-15 build kits to construct multiple platforms that can be interchanged with a single lower receiver. It is at this point that a word of legal caution is in order, however. The ATFE classifies weapons by what they were first created to be.
This goes for whatever type of firearm you first build your receiver as. If it’s a rifle, it has to stay a rifle. Don’t convert it over to a pistol configuration. That’s an ATFE no-no. Buy yourself a new receiver. Stay legal. Build well. Have fun.
