    Just kidding, but I do want to finally start building my M&P lower and would like some suggestions on which upper and LPK to buy.

    I'm on a budget so I can't go all out. I'll most likely go with a complete upper but anyone have any suggestions on a good LPK?

    I will give you $125 + a Pmag :)

    I went with PSA lower parts (in a stripped PSA lower) and have had good luck with BCM, LMT and PSA uppers :)

    At this point whatever you can find instock might be a good buy! I think a BCG is going to be tough indeed!

    i just purchased a complete rifle kit from DPMS, the kit includes everything except the lower. kit also includes all assembly parts for the lower. it was 574 plus tax, and free shipping.

    also purchased a stripped lower from code red firearms for $149.00. i probably could have gotten the lower a little cheaper but i should have it within 3 weeks.

    so total build will cost me 723 plus the cost of shipping and FFL fee for the transfer of the lower.

    DPMS also has complete uppers for sale

    only bad thing about my DPMS order that i can see is this little warning

    Unfortunately due to current demand please be aware that rifles, barrel assemblies, and/ or rifle kits may take up to 8-12 weeks to be filled and shipped out. (This time may change dependent on upgrades and part(s) availability) We are sorry for this delay, if you have any questions please feel free to contact our sales team with your unique order number.

    I wouldn't wait a minute for a free DPMS. 8-12 weeks!? Retarded.

    OP, try and find a LPK from Daniel Defense. Look at Ranier Arms or SKD Tactical.

    i have called around to many local shops and there are a few in the area that do have a fully assembled DPMS and they are all wanting 1800 and up for them. all other places are sold out of everything else. even places online that normally would ship to an FFL are not shipping to anyone because they are selling them too quickly to local customers.

    key word is try to find anything in stock anywhere and if it is in stock it will most likely break the bank right now. at least that is what i am seeing locally

    Are you encouraging people to purchase any old overpriced POS they can get their hands on?

    no i am not encouraging anyone to purchase anything, i was just giving the OP somewhere to look since he already said he is on a budget.

    and to me what i paid seems to fit the budget bill. since even fully assembled DPMS are going for 1800 and up that i am seeing in my area. his local area might be different.

    but trying to find anything when your on a budget right now is going to be hard. especially if your wanting to spend under a grand

    That's right, I knew I was forgetting something.

    For LPK, I believe around $1-150 and the upper I want to be around $600.

    I've heard good things from PSA as well, thanks for the suggestions.

    As for DPMS, I've read mixed reviews on them but don't have any personal experience.

    One LGS today was a madhouse with hundreds in line... and prices were all at least 75% higher to double and ammo almost tripled. The guys at the counter were apologizing and saying that it is what it is now.

    Yes it is. And it isn't going to get any better anytime soon. That's why I am happy with the amount I paid for a complete kit and lower. I will build it myself

    Well, all I have is a lower at the moment. Do you think that is the hardest part to obtain right now? I'm hoping uppers and LPKs aren't going to be too difficult to find...

    As far as I can tell. Everything is hard to come by right now.

    Lower parts kits are typically in the $50-75 range and for my money I'd try to locate a Daniel defense kit. Also, if your budget for an upper is 600 you should be looking at BCM or Daniel defense.

    Thanks for the info. DD LPK it is.

    As for uppers, what do you feel is best for around $400?
