Brand New AR-15 Rifles, for only 495 dollars.
« on: October 04, 2016, 08:34:56 PM »
David Goode builds AR-15 Rifles. He builds some pretty dang good ones too. In fact, he's the guy that built the Project Kahlan pistol, which I have been enjoying a great deal.
David is offering to build, on a Preorder basis, a simple basic type build, for only 495 bucks. That. Is. Crazy.
If you know anyone that's wanting to pick up another AR on the cheap before the Election, or for Christmas Presents, or just to bolster your personal armory... Here you go. David lives out on the Eastern Side of the Greater Charlotte area... but can ship to your local FFL where all your local laws apply.
David is a great guy, Veteran, and has a family to take care of... and is one of the VERY FEW people in the world that I will let work on one of my personal firearms. In fact, I can count those people on one hand... Okay, he's number five on the list... so he's in the Pinky Position. But Pinkies are very important! Just kidding ya, David. You are awesome.
Contact David directly if you have any questions or want one of these rifles... Let him know you are my friend and he promised me that he wont hold that against you.  He is on Facebook here:

I have nothing to do with David's business... so I don't have any answers to questions... And he doesn't yet have a company website. 
But he is a licensed Manufacturer and is legit.   So all laws apply.

    $495 is a good price.  I have now "built" two rifles.  Really, I've only built the lower and then bought the uppers.  The uppers that I've purchased were $350 and $500 and then on the $350 one I had to buy the BCG and Charging handle.  Just the cost of the uppers along was $500.  Then add another $150+ for the lower stuff.  So, $495 is great.

    You should have him come here and post what he will put in this $495 AR.  That's fantastic.

    This.  The parts list is pretty critical.  Biggest items for me are barrel material, coating, and any barrel maker guarantees as far as accuracy.  Bolt material, and if the bolt has been subjected to a high pressure test and subsequent to that a magnetic particle inspection.  If the bolt carrier is a full auto carrier or one of the other styles.  And if the buffer tube is mil-spec diameter or commercial.

    Beyond that, parts is pretty much parts, unless there is something notable.

    Probably a good deal for a starter AR no matter the answers above.

    I don't care who the builder is, or how good he is.  For $500, you are buying a low end AR.  No, for $500, make that a very low end AR.  Unless one is investing against the next panic, I would not touch them.

    Parts are pretty much from the Palmetto State Armory catalogue. 
    Not so much LOW End - but very Basic.

    Hello All,

    The components used to complete this entry level rifle are just that, entry level.  It is a rifle made entirely of parts available from Palmetto State Armory.  No bells or whistles.  It is a weapon that will go bang when the bang switch is engaged.   :)  My whole intention here is to provide a basic weapon for those who don't have the budget for a higher end rifle.

    Very Good.   I know sometimes we can get snobby in our AR's, considering I paid $235 for a BCG and Charging handle.  But even still, it's a good deal for an entry level.

    It is a good price.  You might be able to build one slightly cheaper by doing everything yourself but you really won't save that much and still have to deal the hassle of putting it together.  If you are just looking for a good basic rifle and don't plan on building several, it is a good option.

    Everyone for sure has their preference on the AR platform. I assemble much higher end rifles for particular customers, but I feel I should also provide an option for the guy who can't afford an AR for 2K.

    Yep, it is a good option for more casual gunowners too.  Not everyone is an enthusiast that likes to hyper customize everything and enjoys spending hours shopping for parts.

    So true.  I appreciate the option to customize just about everything.  It is a way to make it your own.  The entry level AR are a decent start to that.  Lots of people now buy basic and customize in their own way.  I sell more parts than I do rifles and I think that is why.
