    A-Cat AR15 in .223/5.56 or 300 Blackout

    I am interested in purchasing my first AR, and I am wanting something preferably in 300 Blackout with pistol length gas system and Silencer. Must cycle Subsonic's without issue.
    I don't have the deepest pockets, if I did, I would be at a Dealership.

    I don't need optics, bi-pods, multiple magazines or the most expensive forend / handguard or stock.

    What have people got on offer?

    Great intro.........Typically this community like to know in some small ways who we are communicating with. How about you head to the introductions page and tell us a little about yourself? It will go a long way in getting you a better response.

    Thanks Terawa, I may just have to have the conversation. But 300 Blackout AR15s must be made of diamonds at Gun City, they seem to charge a premium for ARs in this caliber. I was hoping someone may have done a build and be ready to pass on their pre-loved treasure.

    Tetewa was being sarcastic!

    Stay away from GC, they will sell you cheap Chinese crap at outrageous prices.
    Contact Ken at NZAR15.com and see what he can build to your specs.

    Cheers dogmatix, spent alot of time on his website today! Definately thinking he is the way to go. I know I could at least start a build on my budget.

    Was just hoping someone might have had something preloved at a giveaway price I could have jumped on!

    300 BLK uppers do come up every now and then, so keep an eye out if you don't mind waiting.
    Most important parts on an AR are the trigger, barrel and bolt carrier group.
    Other parts can be done on the cheap.

    Also, unfortunately PHQ are being a complete bunch of ...... at the mo and not letting dealers bring in AR parts. Bolts are now in short supply.
