Can I ask if you have wrote a Statement of Need for this build? I recommend doing such for anyone doing a build or buying a new rifle for that matter especially when the build is of the AR-15 nature. There are many options and a simple SON will help you buy what you need the first time instead of building a custom rifle that you later have to "customize" to suit your need, which during a build could have been done once the first time. Before you start buying up parts, ask yourself a few questions.
What is the average range this will be shot at?
What is the furthest?
What is your
acceptable level of accuracy at said distances?
Will this be a bench gun or will weight be a consideration?
Answering these questions will help prevent you from spending money on stuff you end up not needing after all, and will help your build be something that you will be much happier with. It in its self will help you consider weight, if floating barrels are needed, which optics are required, if there is a need for BUIS, and if any of the components selected are "inappropriate"
