    Get a complete upper receiver instead of stripped. Cheaper than getting stripped and buying the forward assist and ejection cover.

    You could easily buy a Colt or other quality factory rifle for less than you're gonna tie up in that.

    The only thing I would do differently, is buy a different barrel.

    Im thinking of doing the same here.

    Get what I want from the get go, instead of buying a AR,, then paying more for add ons you want.

    I have a few questions to add to this build............

    Can you simply buy a complete upper and lower,,,stock and sights and your set?

    Also what the difference between 1/7 and 1/9 twist? And whats the big deal about midlength now? If they all come out to 16"s?

    And I kinda want front and rear flip up sights,, have seen a ton of AR's with the A built in front sight,, what the advantage of these over filp ups?

    I started looking at Panthers, Bushmasters, M&P.

    Then got pointed in the direction of Rock River, BCM, Spikes.

    I seen a few how I would like mine set up,, and What I want is a light wieght tight package,, with a surefire light.

    Get it done right once and have a good quality AR thats going to last!

    Thanks. and good luck on your build!!!!

    Sounds like the making of a great rifle. I would suggest just getting a complete BCM upper and save yourself some hassle. I am not a brand whore but I suspect BCM barrels are better than PSA. Save a extra couple hundred and your good to go.

    While building an AR is fun and educational, these days you don't save a whole lot of money doing it. Figure out exactly what you want and then price it out before you start.

    The complete bcm upper is more expensive
