Gee.....

A bugit build for under 1000 was hard to do (but doable) back in the 90's!

From the mid 90's
Colt hbar $700
Burris 2-7 compact (around) $200
Carry handle mount and burris rings $50 to $60

Is this ar's only?
Winchester mod70 larado 7mm mag $600
Burris signature 4-16 matt (cant remember but thought it was pricey back then 😁)
Burris signature insert rings $???
Weaver bases

Throw in a Harris bypod that fit either for $50 to $60
I just read up on the Mod70, and by all accounts, it's a great rifle with a great action.
You're also the second to mention Burris who I had heard of but never really looked at so I checked them out. all kinds of cool optics. Glad I looked.

Has anybody found an AR stock that they'd recommend over others?
Or a pistol grip?
AFG / VFG?
Cases that fit an AR w/optic without having to take them down?
Single point slings?
Upgraded BCGs?
Heavier/lighter Buffer + springs?
Folding stocks?
Takedown Barrels?
Conversion kits?
Lasers?
Bipods?
mag well grips?
random novel or tacticool stuff?

I dont know about now, but Burris had a slogan in all their ads and brochures back in the day that their stuff was 100% American made!

If they moved manufacturing off shore, I would look elsewhere!

Do not think I bought any Burris since y2k.

Last scope I did buy was early 2000's and it is a Leupold scout scope to mount on a Marlin 1895s 45/70 guide gun.

Sad thing is I have not bought the mount and rings, the scope is still in the box! ☹️

less than 500 and only needs sights or an optic. Already has mags. Hard to beat in today's market
