DIY BUILD AR-15

If accessories aren’t included, consider building your own. You can stay within budget by acquiring a stripped lower, LPK, Buffer system, stock, stripped upper, barrel, handguard, charging handle, and BCG, opting for higher-tier choices in crucial areas.

I recommend prioritizing quality for the barrel, BCG, and Buffer system. A Centurion lower at around $130 and a BCM stripped upper for $70 are solid choices. Pair them with a decent handguard and LPK.

I would also explore a Black River Tactical complete upper for about $800, add a blemished Radian Charging Handle for $60, and budget around $300-400 for a lower with a buffer system. This could leave room in your budget for an ok red dot optic.
