Here we go

After tons of research on the way ahead for the Squad Designated Marksman Rifle (SDM-R) and looking hard at what I am wanting, I decided to build an AR for Service Rifle matches. I have the upper and lower receiver, but I will basically need to start from there. I believe I can do this for under $500 if I am smart and look for bargains.

Barrel ~$200
Sights ~$150
Free Float sleeve~$75

That leaves about $25 for incidentals.

Mix'n it up

So I inherited my dads AR about a year ago when he died, it is exactly the same as my base model from del-ton, without the add ons. I really don't need two tactical 16" EBRs so I am looking to build a designated marksman 20". We'll see where this leads, but I am looking at White Oak Armament CMP barrel and the ff sleeve.
