Hey everyone just wanted to say what's up! Thanks for the add. Not new to Washington but new to forums! I'm an electronics repair nerd by day and an at home tinkerer with a cross addiction to building ARs! I do repair phones, tablets, laptop repairs on the side along with rebuilding instrument clusters and automotive interior LED lighting upgrades (like window switches, hvac controls, ect) which doing those on the side keep me in ammo and accessories for my toys :) Im Hoping to expand my knowledge of firearms as well as expand my collection here on waguns.org!

Very cool!

Welcome to WaGuns!

Have you built a 80% AR lower?
How far have you gone in building AR’s? Upper mated to barrel or just lowers?

Welcome, Booboo! Thanks for posting.

Yeah, the AR build game is an addictive one … but I guess you know that. Got any particular ones that you like and would like to share?

I've pieced em together completely. I bought my very first AR and have build 6 others piece by piece. The options are limitless which is why I think I love it so much! I spent more time swapping parts out on a build more than I've spent building probably lol

AR’s - The Legos of the firearms world.

So many options and manufacturers. One can get lost in all the choices. Most times they work and a few times the pieces just don’t fit together. It’s a beautiful thing when it all works…. Frustration when it doesn’t. Lol

Take some pictures and share. We love pictures.

I've only actually bought one complete AR and that was a Windham Weaponry and after learning how to disassemble and what I can upgrade it I was done for! Yes can be overall more expensive but it's the best of both worlds if I choose. I could have a build with top tier manufacturers from all over. Right now I'm going through a BCM phase but I think that's changing to Geissele, atleast in handguards. I'm not big on their triggers

If anybody had transactions in play with DrBoo, he was just banned. He is a known scammer that has had NUMEROUS usernames on this forum and many others. He trolls up, sells some items, asks for cashapp and then ghosts.
