Anyone think we need another AR build class? Tulsa, possibly OKC?

    AR parts are plentiful and cheap for now. It's been I think a year and half since we did this? Maybe 2 1/2? I dunno...

    So, if only a couple guys want to bring parts and have someone help guide them through putting them together, we can do that at my place in Bartlesville, or if there are a larger number who want to do things to their rifles, we can probably arrange somewhere in Tulsa, or I might even drive to OKC if there is enough interest.

    I've got tons of spare small parts in a box that were all mostly all donated from Fat Boy Tactical.

    If there's not a lot of interest, that's cool, no biggie. I just put a rifle together today for a friend to give to his dad out of mostly spare parts I had laying around and it put me in mind of the class/get together we did a couple of times. I hadn't built one in a while, probably a year or so. But it's fun tinkering.

    Post here in this thread if you're interested and what you'd like to have done to your rifle, or if it's a ground-up build.

    Hey, I'd be up for that! I don't have a build in the works, or planned! I've got a couple that I'd be glad to bring along for people to tinker with, or maybe there are some 'upgrades' somebody could educate me on. I do need to figure out how to attach a sling on my .300Blk! I wanted to make those earlier ones, but just couldn't make it happen!

    I'm up for another one if I can make it. Life has been so busy over the past year I've barely fired a round. I have tools and the parts for two pistol builds just sitting on the shelf.

    I dont need anything built, but if yall do a class in Tulsa, I'll offer up my "mobile vise" and armorers block for use if you need an additional work station.
    I think its a cool idea.

    I think it's a great idea, and very nice of you folks that have the knowledge and tools. If one were planned in the OKC area, I would attend if at all possible.

    It was January of 2016, IIRC. I had my denial appeal granted a year before and had bought a lower for my first official purchase. I went to the build party with my son to get some help with the assembly of the lower. My son won a CMMG lower parts kit but since he wasn't interested in building his own AR he gave it to me.

    I now have another Anderson lower to house said parts kit and would love to get it ready for a .300 BLK pistol upper. I could drive up to Bartlesville any weekend or would love to attend another AR build party.

    Sounds like fun! I "might" have a new build started (or parts purchased) that I could bring or my first build to work on a few roll pins that didn't want to fully seat (bolt release and gas tube). If anything I have a few "what not to do" experiences I could share. And it would be a cool way to meet more of ya (so far I've met 3 lol).

    Don't really need to build one, but wife is from Barnsdall and would be really nice to know how to break an AR all the way down. Best way to do that is to help put one together.

    Sounds like we have enough interest for at least a get-together.

    Of course, I'm often available evenings and weekends if someone just needs something swapped or whathaveyou.
