And check their lower receiver kit with trigger and most reasonable buffer tube kit with standard stock I could find.
This is what I was talking about, although you are right as well, Jason.

For $800 or a little more you can do better than those two.

I agree that PSA has some great prices. Like Jason I recently bought their milspec receiver extension kit (with buffer, spring, end plate and castle nut - no slider) and the quality was really good and for only $40.

You can tell me if you agree, but I'd rather order the PSA rifle kit, buy a lower and some irons, and go to the range than buy a bushy.

I definitely agree Ben, the PSA kit + your own stripped lower is a great deal any day of the week. Slap on a $57 MBUS 2 and you're ready to go! And still in the $800 +/- budget.
