Cheapest ar 15 / m16 kit?

My birthday is coming up and I wanted to get a kit for my birthday to build a AR or m16 since my brother sold his AR. What's the best site I could build the cheapest kit for I found some for around $400.

Not sure what you mean on a "kit" for $400?? Right at the moment, you can buy a complete AR-15 about as cheap or cheaper than you can build one for - same with complete uppers and lowers. Watch the sales at Palmetto State Armory and elsewhere - they recently had a complete AR for $530 plus shipping and FFL fees after rebate. Saw a few AR's for a bit over $600 at the last Hbg gun show. Bare lowers are going under $100 now, bare uppers around $75, blems even lower.

AR-15, AR-10, LR-10 will be the only ones you can buy. Unless you have a class 3 tax stamp.

My aspirations are simple.

Well I found a whole complete kit for $400 and I can get a lower for $75 as you said then I can get the trigger and everything for around $25 I just want to build my own gun.

Watch PSA as others have mentioned it will be your best option. Look for their daily deals, you can put a good rifle together for under $600. You can put a plinker together for under $500. Good luck and post pics of your build.

PSA has a deal right now, stainless steel barrel, 5.56 M4 with rail kit and an XD .40 4" pistol for $850...

It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.
