Back in Feb, you said the following:
Pat, I'm an older guy too. Building/assembling an AR is not hard, you'll love it!
My first AR started with a S&W stripped lower and I highly recommend that lower, top notch in every way. I would set my sights higher than DPMS or Del-Ton. Look at PSA, Palmetto State Armory, they have great quality and prices.
You'll remember the quality of a gun long after you forget how much you paid for it.
1. I wanted to thank you for that pointer.
2. I started with a Stripped lower receiver from PSA, and have bought most everything else from them. I'm almost done! And so far, it HAS been very easy.
So, again, Thanks a lot for your help.
ps. I'll post a picture after it's finished... if it's ever FINISHED!
