Is it a complete Windham upper? With BCG and CH?

If so it sounds like you have all the components to put together a fantastic rifle. Just but a couple thousand rounds to shoot, and give us a range report.

Is the lower stripped or complete?

If stripped a quality lower parts kit sans fire control is needed, you have trigger. Also, a Magpul stock (mil spec diameter). Also a mil spec buffer tube, spring and buffer.

Do to PSA's website and order yourself an LPK. You should be good after that.

I agree PSA LPK will finish the build nicely.

You may want to invest in roll pin punches and an armorers wrench.

A good block/vice kit of sorts to hold the receiver while your working on it is also nice.
