Thanks, guys, I couldn't have done it without you!

Congratulations Daggle. Well done.

Not too hard at all. It took me about 2 hours altogether to assemble the lower, the upper came complete from Del-Ton. It probably would have gone even quicker, except the wireless connection to my dad's garage sucked, so it took a really long time for the pictures to load in JD's build guide (nod to JD).

Here's what I'm running (for now):

Del-Ton Flat top upper
Del-Ton Bolt carrier group
Lauer Custom Weaponry lower receiver
Rock River lower parts kit
Rock River 2-stage National Match trigger
Del-Ton 20 inch barrel 1:9 twist
Ergo grip
6-position collapsible stock
A2 front sight
NCstar flip-up rear sight
Magpul 10/30 pmags
TruGlo red dot sight ($40, will do until gun fund replenishes)

And I have a Yankee Hill Machine lightweight free floating four rail that's waiting for me to figure out how I'm gonna get the pins out, but that's another thread altogether...

I just bought my stripped lower and ordered the other parts. I am getting really excited to see yours! Great job. Range report soon to follow, I assume?
