I am waiting on my stock kit and sights to complete this first build. Here's what I put together and how much it cost me:wavey:

Okay here are a couple good ones.

1. Burris Fullfield II Lighted Reticle Rifle Scope 3-9x. This scope is on sale for $100 off on Midway USA. Burris makes great quality optics for a decent price.

Leupold Mark AR Rifle Scope 3-9x. Leupold makes some of the best scopes around, this one is made specifically for ARs. Great scope.

Which ever one you choose, don't skimp on the scope mount. I like LaRue Tactical but those are pricey.

The only part that I don't like is the 20" bull barrel. Seems like a waste of metal - unless of course you are planning to load match ammo and shoot competitively. But in that case you'd want a match trigger, and would lose the BUIS. Also, the CTR is a bit light for a bull barrel, and I'd seek better balance. Maybe a UBR, or even a standard A2 stock (if it fits you. If not, there's the shorter Sully Stock that keeps the weight and look of the A2, but in a shorter length for better fit.)

But congrats on the build. Lord knows I've learned a lot just from building AR's and finding out what I like - which is of course the most important thing. If you are happy, then all is right with the world.

I am not using the 20-" upper on this lower after learning too much about AR's and weight:wavey: I am ordering a 16" upper with nice railed hand guard that is flush with flat top. I am using my Troy rear flip sight on it and will purchase a nice front flip and go with a Vortex red dot. WOW the things you learn on GT about AR's...LOL!
