Those are exactly the packages my broke @$$ has been looking at!

Great write up Jpyle, there is always the del ton route also. Some people bach them, I have not seen a bad one yet and have shot a few but they are like everything and Im sure you could dig up a bad review. For the price point its a decent kit for a starter SUR.
lower reciever up to $100 ish with ffl transfer + $465 for a kit

One thing that bugs me, I think there should be at least one mag included with the kit. And I think that is you get a quad rail, it didn't come with rail covers, but I don't know for sure.

I agree on the Mag coming with a kit , My complete M4 came with one but my Kit did not , which really to me isnt a big deal I have plenty of mags but for the guy that doesnt have one theres an additional cost that probably wasnt figured in

I've ordered all the parts for mine. I pick up the lower today. The upper should be here next week. If I had went with the standard barrel rather than the hammer forged, I could have got the price right at $605. As built, mine will run about $655. I'll post the details once everything is in and put together.

Whos kit did you end up going with ?
I went with the standard barrel MOE kit and stripped lower when they were $49 and I ended up around $606 shipped for everything

Exactly. Many current AR owners usually already have several. For a new guy that's an extra ... $10-$40? I'm not sure on the prices, but I know they vary by manufacture. That's just for one or two standard capacity mags too I think.

if ya shop around Pmags can be bought for around $14 and aluminum mags for $10-12 , My local Pawn shop had a bunch come in from the local PD he was asking $8 and I bought quite a few and talked him down to $6 each some were colt LE only mags and some were BM and some were something I hadnt heard of but they all cycle great , best part about a good used mag is usually no FTF issues that some new ones may have and I like the already worn look on them also, most of mine came with anti tilit followers but few didnt so I replaced those . I have had zero issues with PMag in 20 and 30 rd they seem to work great from the start and have provided no headaches
