so i am wanting to build my first AR and i dont even know where to start. i have pretty basic parameters so far. i am on a budget build and would like to keep things as inexpensive as possible and by inexpensive, i mean i would like to keep the final price below $750 built. i dont need the best of the best, but i dont want some cheap junk that will cause me more frustration than enjoyment either. like i said, i would like to build it myself but i just need some pointers from the "experts" here on GT. what are some good companies to use for stripped lowers, parts kits, and uppers? keep in mind my budget build. also, im going to be completely honest here. i know very little about AR's and have only shot one maybe 3-4 times. here is what i have in a cart from PSA. http://palmettostatearmory.com/index.php/checkout/cart/ am i heading in the right direction as far as parts go? do i have everything there that i would need to complete the build? one more thing, i am holding off on an optic for now. i will just be using the basic sights until my budget gets a little higher. Thanks in advance. Sam Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
