It's literally like putting together legos, it isn't nearly as intimidating as people assume.

I built all but one of mine, and the only one that had any issues was the factory built one. A stripped lower and a parts kit from a reputable company (I always use CMMG) will have you set up for success. Then get whatever upper you want and slap it on.

PSA is fine, my first build was a PSA and I never had any issues with it.

Here's the LPK I normally use

https://www.primaryarms.com/cmmg-complete-ar-15-lower-receiver-parts-kit-cmmg55ca6c5

I would advise, however, that you look for an upper with a chrome lined barrel. There's nothing wrong with Chrome-moly Vanadium but the chrome lining greatly extends barrel life. Don't need a cold hammer forged barrel, but chrome lining is a must in my opinion. Nitride treated at minimum.

>I'm having trouble justifying spending that much money on what is mostly a panic buy.

It's no matter. Whatever you go with, you'll probably have more money for ammo and accessories, anyway, which really does matter.

If you can find all of the parts you need and you can afford to do so, it is imperative you buy them now. If you cannot find parts, but can find a quality, complete rifle that you can afford, it is imperative you buy it now. I don't consider any of that panic buying.

Panic buying is buying a weapon for well above its value.

Thanks for the advice! I'm going to try to find something this month or early next month, before the election. Chrome-lined barrels seem a bit scarce; I might have to settle for a nitrided barrel.

Ian is a glutton for punishment. He heard from Calico and they made two suggestions. One, they shipped him a fresh striker spring and advised him to reduce the number of cranks on the 100 round magazine. They recommenced that 23 full cranks was the maximum and that anything between 18 and 20 will work.

So, Ian installed the new spring and used 20 cranks on the magazine as recommended by the factory. He also showed a close up of the action after 250+ rounds from the first three videos. It was filthy beyond imaging for just 250 rounds. So, he cleaned that to be fair and restarted the experiment with a fresh gun.

Hilarity ensues.

To be fair, I did say nitride would be acceptable as a last resort. But chrome is an investment in the future. Might as well spring for it if you can I figure.

Unless he's out to be building a machine gun anytime soon, a nitride barrel will get just as much longevity for him as a chrome lined.

It doesn't last as long though. Longevity is important in uncertain times and chrome lining will last longer. A quality nitride barrel isn't going to be significantly cheaper anyway in my experience.

>What's the deal with primers?
What do you mean? They have to make as many primers as cartridges, and its a completely different manufacturing process, so they can only make cartridges as fast as they can make primers.
Plus, there is a market for just primers that is also experiencing high demand, so the companies need to choose whether to make ammo with the primers, or make more money buy just selling the primers stand-alone.

I've been buying bird shot and emptying the shot and reforming it to put back in as slugs and buck, because i cant find 209 primers atm and i dont have any that i want to use for shotgun shells this close to deer season so ill have plenty for my muzzle loader.

Ah, then the reasons i explained.
Reloaders are buying up primers faster than they can be made, and plebs are buying cartridges (that include primers) faster than they can be made. With these forces combined, demand is far surpassing supply.

On top of that, there are a lot more gun owners than there were 6 months ago, and they all want ammo too. On top of that a lot of these manufacturing facilities may be subject to corona distancing and staff limit rules.

Propellant dosnt need to be manufactured, i mean, it does, but it can be made in bigger quantities, faster. Its hard to come by powder atm too though.

Indeed. Have some smol shotties:
From the top is a Geko 26.5mm flare gun with a 410/.45colt barrel insert. Some 26.5mm's can fire take 12 gauge inserts without difficulty. Hell the WW2 Walther's could fire shaped charge AT grenades but newer sheet metal flare guns like the Geko are best loaded with something less potent.
Center is an H&R Model 1908 12 gauge "lupara." Lupara is Italian and means: "For the wolf" the implication being that you would carry the thing inna woods in case you were set upon by wolves. Though, "wolves" in common Italian parlance could mean actual wolves or it could mean thieves or bandits. This goes back a very long way, You might have heard that Romulus and Remus the founders of Rome were abandoned in the wilderness and raised by a she-wolf. They would have you believe they suckled from the hairy dugs of a literal female wolf because that's just more amazing but "she-wolf" more likely refers to a female bandit or prostitute AKA "a bitch."
Luparas were also quite popular with old-school mafiosos like La Cosa Nostra.
This one had already been cut-down when I got hold of it, I just SBS'd it. It's neat to look at but it's rather a hazard to shoot as the break lever will quite happily split the web of your thumb under recoil if you're not careful. I've been planning to make a more effective pistol grip for it for years now but haven't yet found the motivation.
Finally is my baby, ye olde Ithaca Stakeout. For close encounters, accept no substitute.

Is capable of slam-fire too. Though the action is relatively stiff compared to say, a Mossberg and that, plus the pistol grip and the lack of sights limits the practical ROF a fair degree.

I used to have an 870 with a 20" ventilated rib bbl and a 8 round mag tube, it was nice and heavy which ate-up recoil quite nicely but it would also rust if you looked at it sideways so I went to Mossberg instead. I also have a Winchester 1200 hunting model with a 26" bbl and a full choke. Many a squirrel and bird has fallen to it's wrath.

The Mossberg is my all-rounder. 18.5 cylinder bore bbl, 12" LOP Hogue stock, Meprolight nightsite, Kydex heatshield, side saddle, Streamlight magtube flashlight mount and all in a reasonably compact, lightweight package.

I also have the Saiga-12 if I just want to rapidly hurl a shit-ton of lead at something.
