Whether you want something for utility, or just something fun to shoot on range days, a pistol or SBR is a great tool to have in your AR-15 lineup. In the past, these have not always been the most economical to build, but luckily nowadays you can build one for under $500!
If you decide to go the route of a SBR, then this build will also be a good starting point for you. If you are unsure of legalities and requirements to SBRs, then head over to our post where we talked about it here. Note that when we are referring to the build price for the SBR, we are not including any costs for the stamp or paperwork needed.
