Build Your Own AR-15

Cost is $150. All classes require a non-refundable deposit to reserve a seat. The deposit will go toward the cost of the class. The remaining cost will be due at the time of the class.

In order to build your own AR-15 or variant you will be required to bring the following or purchase them if we have them available.

  • AR-15 lower receiver (stripped) --We carry Rock River, Del-Ton, LRB, and Dreadnaught

  • Complete butt stock assembly --We carry Rock River and Del-Ton

  • AR-15 Parts kit --We carry Rock River, Del-ton, and DPMS

  • Upper receiver (pre-assembled) --We carry Rock River, Del-ton, and JSE

We try to have all of the required parts for a custom build; however, the current political environment has lead to a surge in gun sales. This means a much higher demand than supply; thus, difficulty in remaining fully stocked. The best course of action is to email sales@precisionengagement.com to ensure we have what you need. We have all of the tools necessary to build your AR. If you want to upgrade your grip, butt stock, or parts kits, contact us to ask about our current stock.

Once you build your rifle, we will add any desired extra components, including the following: bipod, sights, grips, slings, etc. Once the rifle is complete, we will take it to the range and break it in; this usually requires 100 rounds that may be purchased from us. This process will allow us to ensure that the rifle is in perfect condition. Once we break it in, we will return to the classroom to clean it thoroughly.
