    My boys first rifle...

    ...an evil black rifle. (I did share this on GunHive, but for those of you who don't go there, here it is.) My 9yo has been shooting the MKII .22lr for a few years now. He's gotten to the point where he can keep it on target at 100 yards. He wants to start shooting a bit further, and have some more pop. So I decided to build him an AR. Mostly because its the one platform that can be adjusted as he grows, and .223 is a great centerfire starter round.

    I also built this thing pretty damn cheap since I had some parts and found some deals.
    -Tactical Machining 80% Lower $30.00
    -80% Jig $25.00
    -Anderson LPK $50.00
    -Buffer and Stock I had already
    -Crossfire II scope and Aero Mount I passed down from my AR
    -Ebay Handguard $40
    -Anderson SBR 18" Stainless Barrel/low profile gas block and tube/muzzle brake $120 used
    -Upper Reciever/Anderson BCG/Strike Ind charging handle $205

    I just rattle canned the paint job. I fugured its going to get beat up so keep it simple and I can always redo it. Range report in the next week or so.

    -I redefined trust between my wife and I. I bought her a gun, taught her to shoot, and made her the beneficiary on my life insurance.

    That's actually a nice piece of work. I'm sure y'all will have many fun days at the range.

    Yes I'm sure we will, at the range or calling coyotes.

    Yeah when i was about 9 i got a marlin single shot .410.. I still have it and my children will get when they turn of age. Thats a sharp gun and sounds like you built it for not much at all. Great looking gun!
