Entry-Level Budget Build

This is a cost-effective budget build for the entry level individual. We like KM tactical for their pricing and $5 flat-rate shipping.

Cost: $485.88 plus shipping and taxes.

FFL transfer fees may be incurred if you have a lower shipped to your FFL dealer. A NICS check will be performed before you can take possession of a lower receiver.
