That's the one I've got and it seems every bit as solid as the Colt CAR-15's buttstock that I carried in Vietnam. I know in those days it wasn't composite material, but this thing you've listed isn't flimsy at all.

personally i would just go with this - MAGPUL MOE Stock Kit Milspec - Black
My friend has one, and it is just great, good price too, but its up to you :D Good luck

I know what I want but need input to choose. I want quality and don't mind paying more for real quality.

1-Want a flat top (Picatinny type), complete, receiver. Same manufacturer to be pretty sure of head space. Spike's Tactical seems to be all in back order and so does PSA.
2-Want an removable handle with A2 adjustable for windage and elevation. will add dot site in future.
3-Want chromed barrel and chamber for ease of cleaning.
4-16" barrel with 1/9" and some kind of, military looking, suppressor.

I'd like to choose and be ready for possible week end sales!

That's a pretty good deal for the MOE kit! I can't comment on the UTG but one of our members had fitment problems months ago. Maybe they've improved their product since but I'm still wary of them.

PSA isnt backordered that I know of. The do take a week to ship being that the kits are put together at time of order. PSA is a one stop shop for the parts you're needing.

I'd really reconsider the 1:9 barrel unless you have a real reason for it.

Muzzle device - an A2 birdcage works well.

I love the look of a carry handle but since you're talking RDS in the future maybe a flipup rear sight like the MBUS would make more sense. Nothing wrong with having a spare CH though, I have at least 5! :p

Barrel twist of 1:9 it just because it's an in between size, since I really don't know any better.
My purpose is for target practice and hobby, for now.
What twist rate do you recommend?

1/9 is fine for most purposes. You'll probably be using 55 gr .223/5.56 ammo most of the time if not all the time. This twist will also allow you to use ammo grains into the 60's or down into the 40's and still have the bullet stabilized out of the barrel to your target.

I agree, I know everyone says the more modern 1:7 twist AR barrels will work with the lighter and much more common bullets in the 55-62 grain weight, but my many years shooting all kinds of firearms tells me a 1:7 twist is too fast for light bullets. For the average shooter who isn't going to be shooting heavy bullets out to 500 yards 1:9 will work just fine.
