Thas pretty rough on a gun, and still no issues (minus one ammo related malfunction). If you want a sub $800 AR, the S&W is the way to go. Second from the right in the first pic is my S&W. The far left in the first pic and the one in 2nd pic are ones that I built. That first one is capable of headshots on a prairie dog at 300 yards. Proof that building is the way to go.

Oh I wasn't arguing with you I was agreeing the oracle is a decent gun. I don't have any experience with the s&ws but I've heard good things and kind of wish I would have gotten one.

What's involved in upgrading your stock from factory to magpul? I've heard you need a special tool to remove it...

No... you just pull it off and put the magpul back on.

That's what I saw everywhere I looked but a guy at the store insisted you need some "special tool"

Use a strap wrench for the ar castle nut. Its a rubber strap you pull tight on it. Works like a charm. I just put my lower assembly all together. Hardest thing is the detent pins for the take down pins. Its a bitch.

Btw you can build a nice mil spec AR for around $800-$900. I have a spikes lower, psa parts kit, and psa upper. Was $850.

Am I missing something here? When I changed the stock on my AR, all I did was pull the stock 4 position off of the buffer tube and put the magpul one on... there was no need for a wrench

If your changing the buffer tube and stock......you have to undo the castle nut.

Ok, so yeah, there's no need for a wrench, although like posted before, it wouldn't hurt for you to have an AR wrench. I got mine at Dunham's Sports for less than $10

Speaking of which, does anyone have any recommendations on a good red dot, and preferably one that isn't a $500 eotech

Ok yeah I probably need quite a few things lol. This is my first AR and def not my last. Thinking about building my next one after I get this one finished (pretty much just wanna get some back up iron sights on it then it's done) so I'll need everything for that.

Me too about the spotting scope! Every time I go to buy one I end up spending the money on ammo and/or moar magpul lol
