I spent a good deal of time last night playing with their AR builder, and I have to say, it’s a great idea.Â Brownells should really take time to make a better web site too, which has been one of the reasons I’m not a more loyal customer.Â MidwayUSA’s web site is just a lot easier to use, and more useful.Â Nonetheless, Brownells will end up getting some of my money for this, maybe a lot of my money.Â Here’s what I configured last night:
You can click to get a bigger picture. This assumes I can either buy through an FFL, or make my own AR-15 Lower Receiver. I didn’t include that in the price, though I put a lower on there just to make it look OK. It’s not included in the price tally. My only complaint about the configurator, other than the fact that it will quickly drain my wallet, is that when choosing a barrel band for the front sight, it won’t put itself in the right spot, and I think the picture showing on there is upside down. I also wish you had links in the inventory list, so you could easily review your list to make sure you know what you are getting. Other than that, this is a highly innovative idea on the part of Brownells, and I have to commend them for it.
