FNAR is reasonably priced for what you get.

It's basically a modernized BAR.

Build an imbel FAL

Or just buy a PTR GI from atlanticfireaerms for ~900

If you really want to try your luck you can try to find a C308 or CETME parts kit gun, but there's a reason why they're cheap.

Don't hop onto the m1a meme, unless you enjoy carrying an anchor.

Don't know much about 308 ARs, maybe someone will chime in.
>>
PTR-91s are generally less expensive as the FAL or M1A equivalent.

That said, if you really want to maximize cost/utility, AR-10's where it's it.

It's the best battle rifle ever made.

It's the SIG 510.

>>28505586
SR-25, you fucking poorfag.

>>28505646
M1As aren't very heavy, Maynard.
BARs on the other hand...

If you really are that weak, maybe you should lift, little buddy.
>>
>>28505753
It's a good target rifle, but if it was introduced in the 40s it would have been a LMG. That fucker is just heavy
But i still love mine, shoots as good as my 550
>>
What ya guys think about the socom 16?

probably a PTR-91 because they're only 1000

best battle raifu would be an LRB M14

An M1 Garand from the CMP

I wear 60 pounds of tools and screws on my hips, and climb scaffold and stairs all day. Most of the time with a chop saw and 200' of twist lock on my shoulder... or units of steel studs and other material.

Your just a pussy millenial, or ex military sham artist who has never done manly work in your entire life.

If 7lbs is too heavy for you to pack around, you are a complete and total vagina.

Hang your head low, little guy.

Skilled labor, $60 an hour total package.
$5+ an hour into 401k, $43 an hour wage.
Weekends off, or overtime Saturday, double time Sunday. More than 8 a day is overtime, more than 10 a day is double time.

Plus women wash their panties on my washboard stomach.

How many guns do you own/can afford to own and shoot?

Is the $1800 too much for you to afford on your McSalary?

I had the... displeasure of shooting an Ohio Ordnance Repro BAR and it was fucking painful. I lift on a daily basis, but aiming that thing whilst standing was fucking awful. Prone and benched the thing was fine, but god damn. Even though it was so heavy, the recoil was still pretty substantial.

>Don't know much about 308 ARs, maybe someone will chime in.

Good deals can be had, but they're a crapshoot to build. The parts aren't standardized, although there are some more major players, so you have to be careful what you buy, and your options are limited. I'm working on trying to do a PSA PA-10 on the cheap, and I'm in for $450 so far; upper, lower, barrel, buffer kit, stocks. PA-10s are mostly DPMS standard parts, proprietary upper and lower, and a few proprietary lower parts.

I still need upper and lower parts kits, gas tube and block, muzzle device, and a BCG. Straight retail, it'd be about $400 for the rest. So, by the time you're all done, unless you're willing to play the long game and wait for sales, you may well spend $1k+ for an entry level AR-10.

>"Bitches always on muh dick"
Very jealous, maybe I'll go shooting with my range buddy GF to try to forget my envy.

>"Is the $1800 too much for you to afford on your McSalary?"
No. I'm a STEM major, and I'd rather put money towards future projects or University fees.

Plus I'd rather buy a nice competition shotgun to shoot trap and skeet with for my school's team.

Seriously, get the fuck off of /k/ and never come back. Maybe /fit/ or the fags at bodybuilderforums will worship you.

>sub six figure
Most six figure salary jobs require 45-50 hours a week, on the job. Then you have your emails and homework to do.

If I pick up Saturday alone, I earn ~$120k a year. And that's not including the $5 an hour, tax deferred into my retirement account, or the $2.25 an hour deposited into my vacation account on a monthly basis.

My apprenticeship was free, and I started off at $15 an hour, ojt with pay.
How is the running interest on your student loan been treating you?
Won't take you much longer than a couple decades to pay off your state university STEM degree with that $70k a year, 50 hour week salary, eh?

Oh yeah, I get to retire a millionaire at 56 with 25 years, then if I stay out a year I can cone back to work full time while collecting my full pennsion... which is seperate from my 401k and earns me $150 a month for every year I work.

Have fun with your vitamin D deficiency, emaciated lower-middle class fag.

I'm going to spare you further social embarrassment because of the cat.

You also seem triggered, and as a registered Democrat I feel the need to check my socioeconomic privilege and respect your polyamorous relationship with multiple skeet shooters, and not judge you for enjoying the extreme barebackings by the finacial institutions of your preference. Friend.

I am building an Imbel FAL from a kit I picked up on an Imbel upper receiver. It has been anything but cheap. I have upwards of 1500 into the build including all of the tools, parts, replacement parts, shipping and measuring devices I have purchased. Battle rifles are not cheap weapons
