Gentlemen, I need your professional opinions once again! In the DISTANT future I will be looking at purchasing my first AR-15 rifle platform (preferably in 5.56). AR-15's are new to me but fit my interests (tinkering with guns) exceedingly well. The purposes for this particular AR-15 would be a defensive weapon, project gun, and all around fun gun. The questions are as follows...
- Would I be better off buying a complete rifle or build my own?
- Is there any advantage to building an AR-15 over purchasing a complete one?
- Should I follow only military guidelines for an AR-15?
- Is there a specific brand that I should look into for pre-built guns?
