The Trash Panda, the ultimate cheapo AR built with a lot of help from arf.com and czfirearms, total cost to me was $138. Many donated parts, so the actual cost would be higher. The CavArms/Sabre Defense one piece poly lower may be replaced soon with a PSA MagPul MOE lower. It shoots straight and true, but only likes reloads loaded on small base dies. Gives me about 1.5 at 100 yards with factory ammo. I'm very good with that. Might be used on coyote some day...
Her sister, Guardian, built for the wife, same lower, lighter build and thick recoil pad makes for a fun shooting little rifle. Also works extremely well. Both rifles are built with Bear Creek Arsenal Veterans Day giveaway barrels, Trash Panda with a heavy .223 Wylde and Guardian with an M4 Contour 5.56mm. That one likes my full length sized reloads much better, though both will shoot factory all day long.

Here is my favorite AR Rifle...
An Israeli Military designed, dual operating system, 5.56 NATO Double Rifle called the Gilboa Snake DBR.
As it turns out, I am also their distributor for this rifle in the Western U.S.
It was designed by "Silver Shadow", which is Israel's version of DARPA.
They needed a weapon system capable of using common ammunition and magazines, yet able to deliver many times the downrange energy.
Striking a target, soft or hard, with two simultaneously arriving projectiles increases the ballistic energy transfer exponentially!

Old School is Cool! I like them light and simple! I also really loved my early issue Colt 607 CAR, so I had to replicate one as best as I could!
For those heavy days.............
Fires Smoke, or chalk rounds!
Finally. After all this time waiting for parts, or my jig, or whatever, my first AR-15 build is completed. I have not fired it yet, but hope to soon.
There are a couple of clearance issues that need to be addressed, but the rifle is complete. It's probably a little over the top, but what the heck.
Let me know what you think.
