My compliments on your triggered and your podcast this week. They served to get me excited for the gun community, once again.
You always tend to leave me as a glass half full type of guy. I have been a ham radio operator since 1972, with about 2 years hiatus. I have been considering building a sporting carbine for quite some time now. I am planning on an AR 15, but am torn as to caliber. It will be either a 5.56, or a 7.62×39. The only reason for the uncertainty is the price difference, and to a bit, the .30 caliber round.
Do you have a suggestion that might help? I am not looking for a tack driver, but at least a fairly accurate gun out to 150-200 yards, with some kind of optic or another. It will be mostly used for plinking, target practice, and home defense. I don’t want to build an AK 47, since it seem less forgiving than an AR 15, and the AR 15 seems to have more ways to adjust it, due to the modular design.
Last question, would you go with an 80% lower receiver, or a finished one? Or even a completed lower? I am looking at putting the money where it counts, but where it is just show, I am going more cheaply.
Any ideas from you, or places to look for help would be greatly appreciated.
Again, great podcast and Triggered this week. Stay safe, and hang tough.
