Buddies at work that got their ARs way back during the 2013 rush? (Or was it the 2009 rush?)

They are getting itchy now.  Unsatisfied.  "It rattles.  Do I just get a new lower?  Is my lower all worn out?"  They've had less than 200 rounds through it.

They want something better.  Less bare bones.  "Hey what would it take to put a silencer on it?"

Looking to trade up. "I can't see though the scope unless my head is in just the right position."


I say:

  • You don't need a new lower, probably.  Wait, is it polymer?  Meh, Just go with it.
  • There are gun shows in Virginia that will sell you uppers.
  • Get a Magpul catalog and buy everything in it.  Magazines in Virginia
  • Upgrade the optics to some that actually costs more than a C-Note

That's the standard advice you see, right?  Meh, won't cause any harm.  Prolly.  Find a place to shoot what you got already a bit more just to see.  If it's reliable, maybe leave it.  If you wanna do something different well, that can be done.
