  1. That sure ain’t the prettiest thing, but with that price, the takedown feature, and the fact that I can now semi-retire my Marlin Camp Carbine 9mm, this will likely be the next firearm I purchase. Oh, and that threaded barrel…

  2. My AR platform 9mm cost WAY less than that to make, and it isn’t a serial numbered weapon. Why would I spend almost twice as much for this, when I can make exactly what I want? I think it’s a nice weapon, but, being retired,(NOT retreaded, Miguel… lol!!!) I like the AR platform better. I am not saying this one is not a good one. It is definitely a work of craftsmanship, none the less!!

    I always enjoy your rye humor, articles, and opinions, Miguel!! Have a great week!!

      1. I purchased all of my parts on sale, and managed to build it for $372 and some odd cents. It took about 4 months to acquire the parts, but, when you look at it, you can get a barrel for less than $70, on sale, and the B/C Group for under $80, using a 9mm 80% lower on sale for less than $40, there is almost all of your highest priced parts. Using common sense, and sales on line, you can get all you need at remarkable prices. I did the same thing with my AR’s. Why buy the same manufacturer when all parts are interchangeable??

          1. Now, there is where you may have missed what I said in my post, Miguel. You CANNOT sell a weapon that you make with an 80% lower. Your cost is going to be SIGNIFICANTLY higher, buying fully machined lowers. I DID say, 80% lower.

            All of the parts operate as they should, and it has NO SAFETY issues because of using several manufacture parts. Everything I bought for mine was quality manufactured, by reputable companies. top name companies) making standard parts for the general public, and military specs. I buy nothing less.

            I spent many years as a C.A.T.M. weapons instructor, and tactical training. I may be an old fart, but, I am still up to date on weapons training. I don’t consider myself a self proclaimed expert, because I stay informed as much as I can. But, I think 43 years of experience in military, and a few more in civilian life, at least makes weapons one of my specialties. Not saying on ALL, but, a fair portion of those available to the public. I ALWAYS learn something new, every day.

            I thank you for responding. I always enjoy your posts, and your input. It makes for interesting conversation!!

            Thanks!!!

            1. Copy… And you are absolutely right, just like AK Flats (Shameful secret, I don’t own an AR).

              My brain went straight to a couple of cases I saw of people hurting for money trying to sell their builds. Nobody would take them because they are guns without backing. If they go Tango Uniform and you are not good with your hands, where do you go to have to fixed? I think one of the guys just wet ahead, took it apart and sold it piece by piece.

              But as you said, you are married till death parts with your 80%.

              1. I didn’t say there weren’t ways of getting around that rule. Parts sales is one option. Even giving it away for a donation has been done more than you may know.AND… If you decide to serialize your lower, which you can do anytime, you can sell it, as long as you don’t do it more than once or twice a year… otherwise, you need a FFL License, and it can be a serious crime to d so without one. But, then again, why would I get rid of a weapon built and customized to my needs?? Can’t do that at a low cost from a dealer. Thats the marvelous concept. PLUS… I do not have to tell the commu-crats I have one! The less they know, the better off we are as a country.

                I wouldn’t trust ONE politician as far as I could piss…. NONE of them!!!

        1. > Ruger costs $520.
          > Claim to have built better for half cost.
          > Built kitbashed gun for $372.

          That’s some advanced congressional-levels of mathematics.

          1. OK, SO YOUR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS SHOWS EVERYONE YOU HAVE TO BE A PRICK. IF IT WOULD HAVE BEEN ONE PENNY MORE THAN HALF, YOU WOULD HAVE TO INTERJECT YOUR COMMENT, JUST TO TRY TO IMPRESS OTHERS. IT ISN’T WORKING, I STAND UP TO ANYONE WHO WANTS TO BE ONE, BECAUSE I AM A BIGGER ONE WHEN YOU THINK YOU’RE CORNERING ME FOR SOMETHING SO TRIVIAL. IT IS STILL MUCH CHEAPER THAT BUYING IT. PROVE TO ME IT ISN’T… YOU CAN’T. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE SOMETHING IMPORTANT TO SAY, YOU MIGHT LEARN SOMETHING, MAKING YOUR OWN. MOUTH AND SMART ASS COMMENTS ONLY MAKE YOU LOOK BAD. NOT ME. CAN IT, UNLESS YOU CAN MAKE GOOD ON YOUR PRICKY ANSWERS. TAKE IT ELSEWHERE, YOUR TALKING TO THE HAND, AND OUT YOUR ASS. BLOW HARDS ARE CHEAP, AND EASILY FOUND. SO YOU’RE NOT UNIQUE IN YOUR CRITICISM.

            STILL LESS EXPENSIVE, AND IT WORKS THE SAME WAY. BEING A PRICK DOESN’T MAKE YOU THE TOP DICK, OR THE BIGGEST BAD ASS IN THE FORUM. JUST THE ONE WHO’S TRYING TO MAKE IT LOOK BIG, THAT’S ALL. ANSWER AND MAKE YOUR COMMENT WORTH DISCUSSING, AND MAYBE WE CAN HAVE DECENT INTERACTIONS, AND DISCUSSIONS, SUCH AS MIGUEL AND I DO. OTHERWISE, YOUR WASTING YOUR TIME, NOT IMPRESSING ME, AND ONLY MAKING AN ASS OUT OF YOURSELF, NOT ME. OK? GLAD WE CAN UNDERSTAND EACH OTHER. HAVE A NICE DAY… (SORRY, MIGUEL. HAD TO EXPRESS MY OPINION OF THE THE UNHINGED TYPE OF REACTION HE WAS PROJECTING.) IT HAS NO PLACE IN ANY VENUE, THE WAY HE RESPONDED. NOTHING PRODUCTIVE COMES OUT OF IT, EXCEPT PISSING PEOPLE OFF, OR TRYING TO SHIT ON SOMEONES ACCOMPLISHMENTS. I DON’T TOLERATE IT. I WILL BE POLITE TO ANYONE WHO SHOWS DUE RESPECT TO ME, AS AND ELDER, AND AS A HUMAN BEING. YOU DON’T RESPECT THAT, FIRST OFF, YOU’LL BE GETTING THIS TYPE OF RESPONSE FROM ME. YOU MUST HAVE NOT HAD A PROPER BRINGING UP, BEING MOUTHY TO AN OLDER PERSON. MY AGE ALONE DESERVES BETTER TREATMENT FROM LITTLE PEA-BRAINS, WHO CANNOT FIND SOMETHING BETTER OR CONSTRUCTIVE TO SAY, AND TRY AND MAKE THEMSELVES LOOK BRILLIANT…

            THANKS.
