    how are these, they say the barrel is in the white and needs to be finished,

    does that just mean it needs a park or duracoat finish, or does it need to be cut on a lathe ?

    also how are the quality of these, and do they include everything you need minus lower ?

    I saw these. They don't seem like a particularly good deal, for a very basic AR kit that needs work done. I interpreted it as saying the barrels needed machining.

    You can get full parts kits around the $500 mark, with whatever options you want to pick (obviously with the price going up for fancy stuff). Not sure what makes this setup appealing.

    Normally that term applies to a completely machined part that does not have a protective finish applied.

    "Parts kits" normally include all parts minus the lower stripped receiver.

    I looked into those at one point, it seemed that they're hit or miss. Missing parts and things like that. Basically for what you get there are much better values. Thats what I had gathered anyway.
