Ordered Sons of Liberty Gunworks M4

Ordered the Thomas Paine. https://sonsoflibertygunworks.com/co...ant=7917283969

I added the cold hammer forged barrel, pinned gas block, and am having my company logo engraved on the right side of the magwell.

I'm replacing the Lantac Dragon with a Silencerco ASR flash hider, the stock with a Magpul MOE, and the pistol grip with an Ergo.

Build will take about 3 weeks or so, I'll post more as I get it.

Semper Fi!

I don't know anything about the company, but that's a very nice looking rifle. I'll have to look into Sons of Liberty.

Look forward to the range report. Are you going with a red dot or scope? Been thinking real hard about picking up a SS 1-4 HD or the SWFA 1-4.

That should serve you quite nicely. Solgw has some really good stuff.

This is the first I have heard of them. Other than the info on the website what is so special about them? Not trying to start something just genuinely curious about theirs rifles and the price that goes with them.
Thanks,
SMAWman

I'm wondering the same thing. It looks like it has good parts but I've assembled many an AR and for that kind of money I could do a lot better than that.

I'm not familiar with this manufacturer.
What made you choose them over a BCM recce 16 or DD?

Just curious on a manufacturer I don't know about.

Never heard of them but I hope you are happy with the final product.
Capona BCM and DD aren't the end all be all of AR 15's and I'm glad there is another higher end builder out there.
I have had a BCM and I can't say it was all that outstanding over any other AR I have bought or built from parts.
Lets just say there is a lot of 'snake oil' when it comes to AR parts

I've used almost nothing but DD up to now. Solid, reliable carbines and made in Georgia. I have 2 of the V1's and I'll keep them.

I've been coming across references to Sons of Liberty Gunworks and read numerous reviews of their products by folks like Primary & Secondary that I actually trust. A friend of mine has done business with SoL in regards to veterans charity support groups and introduced me to one of the owners.

Nuttin' fancy, just well-designed and properly made parts. I don't want fancy lightweight BCG's, adjustable gas blocks, gas pistons, and titanium parts, or a gun that Bubba assembled in his garage from cool-guy parts. I want the best, solid and reliable. That's what SoL does and backs it with a lifetime warranty. Little things like QPQ'ing the gas tube.

That's my take on SoL.......YMMV. I'll post more when I get my hands on it in a few weeks.

Semper Fi!

As long as you are happy with your purchase that's all that matters. However, after reading through their description they appear to be another AR15 ASSEMBLING company with a little bit of marketing gimmickry added in for good measure. I highly doubt if they make any of the parts they use to assemble their rifles. I see they use a SLR Rifleworks hand guard with their name on it and who knows who makes their receivers for them. And the attentions to detail like the QPQ gas tube well they are about $15 from about 5 different sources be it Seekins, Spike's, etc. I actually added all those parts up on DSG Arms and it came out to about $2200 with shipping and ffl fees and that was upgrading to a Mega billet fully ambi receiver set and everything else being the same. Theirs came out to a little over $2500when I added the options you said you are getting and I didn't add the engraving, shipping, or ffl fees. So you are paying about $400 or even more to have their "lifetime warranty" that you'll probably never need on a rifle that isn't any better than what I can "Bubba" together in my garage. They also need to learn how to spell Geissele if that's going to be one of their selling points. But like I said, if buying their rifle makes you happy then more power to you. Just don't degrade the rest of us by inferring we are a bunch of "Bubbas" because we didn't buy into the hype.

I've built a lot of M4's over the years, so I'll call them a garage-built-Bubba-gun if I choose. With the parts I've got in the shop right now, I could build 4-5 more if I wanted.

I didn't pay anywhere near advertised retail price, so your $400 difference isn't even CLOSE. As a firearms and tactics instructor that owns my own business, I got a very nice discount from them on the build I spec'ed, with free shipping. I paid a lot less than what the parts list you assembled on DSG Arms costs.

Thanks from Snyper762, nf1e and Stevie Ray

Who cares what you paid. You have a new rifle on the way, you are stoked and you're not going to let internet based opinions ruin your day. Sounds pretty good to me! I look forward to the update.

And as a 22 year veteran aircraft mechanic, I'm no Bubba. I'm pretty sure they don't do anything I can't do. And the parts I listed from dsg, which by the way meet or exceed what they are selling you in quality, can be had even less if you are mil/leo with the generous discounts they offer as well.

And I'm still not getting your point. Go piss on someone else's parade.
