    Hey guys, I'm starting to shop for a complete kit to make use of a stripped lower I have.

    I know of Del-Ton, RRA, and a few others I found online, but I thought I'd consult the brain trust here to see what you guys recommend as being the best quality for the dollar.

    I'm looking to end up with a 16" flattop M4-gery type, nothing fancy.

    I know that RRA is highly regarded, but at around $650 for their kits, they are also almost $200 more than someone like Del-Ton, which is another highly regarded outfit.

    Guide me!

    Thanks!

    RRA isn't the worst but it is probably not as well regarded as you would think. That said, for a complete kit, try hitting up AR15sales.com and get a complete Stag Arms kit.

    $638.00 and it comes with a mag.

    Better quality than RRA or Del-Ton.

    Interesting, and thanks. I see you don't have them listed on your site, but do YOU sell complete kits? I'd like to support a fellow GT'er if I could! :)

    This is likely to be a good deal, BUT for the money IMHO the Del-Ton kit at $485 is a better VALUE. I'm NOT saying it is a better rifle, but a better value.
    One of the things I prefer about Del Ton is the ability to spec EXACTLY what I want. The Stag kits did not offer the variations that I prefer.

    Temporary thread detour, sorry `bout that.

    Thanks, that is a scan of my original beret flash from when I got out in `76, that's why it is off center, my photo editing skills are lacking.

    We now return you to your originally scheduled discussion.

    I had no idea you could get into a Stag for that kind of price. I have been looking at Doublestar and DPMS in an effort to get a CAR15 buiilt this year. I was going to use a Fulton Armory lower and slick side upper but since that upper comes with a sight and rail included I may rethink that. My old eyes would rather have optics anyway.

    Yes, sorry for the hijack.

    There has been a group sale going for some time over at ar15.com. The second one is running now and the wait time is supposed down to weeks now. I got 2 from the first buy and like them.
