I saw some on that site that were $59 but they were sold out. Anyone know how long they usually take to get some back in stock?

AIM may or may not restock a particular item once it's sold out. They sometimes get a special shipment of something and when it's gone, it's gone.

This has me considering building one now... It doesn't appear to be that hard to get a complete upper and build a lower from a stripped and a parts bag...

It isn't. I've done two that way now. There are plenty of knowledgeable people on here that are willing to help. You just need to decide a direction before you start so you don't waste money on things you don't really need/want.

I was looking at a basic A2 or A4 upper chambered in 5.56 NATO and just running with a lower and a basic parts bag. Nothing fancy, nothing custom.

I've got a stripped upper right here but gun bank isn't making any loans at the moment.

My personal preference is A4, so you can mount optics if you choose. But it's just that, personal. If you prefer the simplicity of the A2, then go for it. There is a thread, I think it's even a sticky, dedicated to finding AR parts on a budget.

Are there any fairly cheap combinations of the two? Like a handle with rear sights that still has optics mounts?

You can find a removable A2 handle that has the analog sights you are used to, but can be removed and optics mounted on the A4 rail instead.
