There is a link in my signature that will take you to a detailed parts break down, links, vendors, part numbers and prices that I saw online and then cost. I didn't get all the shipping costs included... And, since this was my first build, I spent and paid more for the things I really wanted. I could have done this on the cheap, but that wasn't my goal for my first build.

My goal was to build a lower that would function as a base for multiple uppers, have a gone that fort he first build would be able to function for range plinking, have the ability for me to try out 3GUN or tactical courses to see if I want to do that as much as I think I do, and be a platform for me to learn, have fun with, and excel at.

Also, the process of researching, learning, getting involved with this forum etc all are as much fun for me as shooting.

SWEEET looking stick bro!

No BCG yet? Am I correct in assuming this is more of a competition type build? I'm only assuming because of all the JP parts, adjustable gas block and 45 degree sights. Speaking of sights...are gonna put some glass on that? What are you leaning towards?

Just so you know, if you have an adjustible gas block, you really don't need all those buffers. You can tune your system to the buffer you have on hand. Most people would use the lightest buffer possible in order to get the fastest cycling. You might want to look into a JP LMOS bcg.

The big question....WHEN YOU TAKING HER OUT????!!!!!

Glass is still on the list. And I totally agree AgentTikki about the adjustable gas block and the buffers. Mostly, I wanted to have them all for friends and family. It enables me to help them if they need tuning or trouble shooting later on My goal was a competition build yes! A bit late in responding, life has been crazy... But, having a blast

Thanks for keeping us updated, monteros! Your build looks great.

Nice spread sheet and great way to know where you are cost wise. That being said somethings are just best left alone.
