    Well, I have done my 2 AR builds.

    Number one,
    Model 1 sales parts kits 16" heavy barrel upper, Magpul ACS stock. Eotech 512 and UTG carbine Quad rail, no name foregrip, essential arms lower


    Number 2
    DSA 16" parkerized M4 upper, UTG extended Quad rail, DPMS lower parts kit, standard stock. Essential Arms lower.

    I haven't decided on an optic for #2 yet. cant decide between eotech or aimpoint

    The #2 cost me VERY little to build

    I already had a lower from a a while back
    the upper was $265
    I already had a BCG
    the lower kit was $55
    and I already had the stock

    and I used my credit card reward poiunts to order the flip up sight and quad rail off of amazon

    JTLIII, how is the Model 1 sales treating you? I have an acquaintance who put one of Model 1 Sales "varmint" uppers on his lower and was getting tremendous 100 yard groups with black hills ammo. I'm thinking about picking up one of their uppers. Any feedback?

    Model 1 is top notch IMO. Great quality, and I shoot pretty well with mine.

    Since you already have one EoTech, try an Aimpoint, just for variety. :cool:

    Skip the Aimpoint, go for a Trijicon.
