So. Here's my situation, I have a bolt action, and a shotgun, now I am looking to buy a Semi-Auto rifle.

I found one rifle kit that I like palmettostatearmory.com/psa-16-mid-length-5-56-nato-1-8-stainless-steel-freedom-rifle-kit.html , and also a pre-built rifle www.gunbroker.com/item/587621608 . The cost of the kit is obviously less than the prebuilt, but being a first time semi-auto owner, is it better to buy a prebuilt and just take care of it, or buy a kit and build it?

Thank you in advance.

all autism aside, if you're not carrying it for your job like police or some security contracting, theres not a damn thing wrong with PSA.

Do you plan on purchasing an FFL lower or milling and 80%?

Bear with me, im not THAT versed in these terms.

I was looking at getting a complete rifle kit or pre-assembled rifle. What is the difference between the FFL lower/Milling and 80%?

Is one easier to deal with?

FFL = Federal Firearms License.

For ARs the only part that's actually considered a "gun" in the eyes of the law is the lower receiver which is the part that houses the trigger and accepts the magazine. In order to buy a lower you need to get it from an FFL holder (gun store basically) or have it shipped to one to pick up.

Alternatively you could just make your own lower by buying an 80% lower (as in 80% complete) and machining it into a real lower. I don't recommend this for first timers. It's legal though because any lower that's only 80% complete or less is not considered a gun by the law.

Building an AR is not difficult. My first AR was a custom build that I put together in a few hours after doing research and buying parts online. A novice can do it in 2-4 hours with some youtube videos, a bench vise and some other tools. It's also immensely more satisfying to build your own AR than to buy one off the shelf.

In that case I think im going to do FFL lower. I was already planning on shipping it to one of my local gun stores, so that works out perfectly .

I built my first semi. but it was pistol caliber no real threat of blowing up in my face and not a precision rifle. so that wasn't a concern. I still fucked up the finish because I didn't have the right tools, but it works.

if you're concerned with precision, leave it to the pros, but if not, try it. there are tutorials out there. the best thing about pre built is that if you have a problem, you can contact the manufacturer and they'll help you.

I've got a p09 and an 85. My best friend has a sp-01. They all shoot great. Only issue I've every had is the short chamber/lead with certain bullet types but thays only if you reload. If you buy all your ammo they will be flawless.

CZs are bae. Never been a fan of the M9. If you don't have a handgun yet I recommend a CZ.

I have the P09 but any of the 75s are great guns. Comfortable, accurate and well made.

in case of shit show, you can easily turn an open bolt system fully automatic.

sounds dubious plus full auto is useless if you miss half the rounds. a good reliable 9mm would probably serve better if shit goes down.

i figure it's be best to buy prebuilt since i have butterfingers and i'm very paranoid about questionably legal stuff. do you know anything about good 9mms? i feel it would be more utilitarian as theres a round for every purpose possible in 9mm and the prevalence of 9mms lends more to quality claims.

The link I posted already has a 9mil option ;)

The only 9mm I have is an AR version. Sorry I couldn't be much help, buddy.

no problem, all i'm really looking for at this point is evidence of whether one model stands out as incredible. i know i'm being pretty picky but since i'm not going to have disposable income enough for a gun for a while, i'd rather get something i can use for the rest of my life.

Get a glock brand glock or something. My wife's been buying Tauruses lately. She has the 24/7 .40 S&W but they make 9mm as well.

damn. i'll look into both of those. in the past i didn't really consider glocks since i like hammers and i've been told glocks don't have much that stands out to merit the price tag but i'm willing to reconsider. haven't heard much about tauruses. i'll watch some videos.

Basically, a taurus is a gun. It does it's job. Use the money you'd save on some ammo. I can't vouch for the gun because I haven't fire it. It's my wife's carry for work.

you can get pretty good ARs for around $800

or save up another pay check and get yourself a 1000 dollar AR

FN has a line of those, tactical edge USA has one, BCM has some offerings.

But palmetto is about as poor fag as it gets, they are ok though

300 bucks is double what i paid, and mine was a 1929 hex receiver with all matching serials and bayonet. check out some gun shows before you do anything over $100

Fucking none. I don't know where everyone got the idea that Obama and now Hilary are coming for your guns. If Obama really wanted your guns he could take them. But I mean. 99% of this website knows jack shit about politics (me inclueded) and just parrot what ever we happen to agree with.

Does anyone own an SVD or PSL style rifle,preferably 7.62x54? I was thinking of buying one and wanted opinions on it.

AR-10's are hard to find in Massatwoshits and I don't know why, and the parts are as well. Cheapest lower I could find was about $500,no one had magazines, and the one store that had them, they were almost $30 for a fucking magazine. The price to assemble it could buy me 1&1/2 AR-15's or 2 Type 56's

If I just bought a .308, it's about $1 a round,where as 7.62x54R is about 20 rounds for $1. It also helps that the gun stores I go to sell PSL magazines.

At least it's not a nugget
