Building Wife’s Custom AR-15 – The Lower
What better way to say Happy Birthday to your wife other than building her own custom AR-15? She loves shooting the AR but she wanted her own that resembles her personality. I’ll document the process I took to build her rifle.
I first got the idea to make this build when I was looking to buy my Glock 26. As I was looking around, I stumbled across a Daily Deal from Palmetto State Armory to get the Glock 26 Gen 5 with 3 AR-15 lowers for $599! Talk about an offer you can’t refuse. The PSA AR-15 LOWER SAFE/FIRE – 1728 that was part of the package deal usually sell separately for $39.99 if you are interested.
I had thought about building an AR but was nervous about it. However, as I researched it and swapped parts on my current rifle, I gained more confidence. The first step accomplished, off to research the parts needed to complete this very special custom build. All I know, when I asked for some details of what she would want, she said, “It has to have purple.” And we off we are on our new mission. If you are going to defend yourself, why not do it in style?
