Default DS Arms ZM 4 lower build

What up all. I am staring my first AR build. Just got a DSA ZM 4 complete lower with a magpul miad postal grip and a B A D lever. I would like to build it as a 223/556 any suggestions on an upper , BCG and so on and so on

You have a green magazine in your black rifle. Does that clash? I've never been good at matching colors.

I know I know it was a free mag. I have been using it as a vise block

Phase 5 > Troy > Magpul bad lever.

Get the Troy, same price as the Magpul but nicer. Phase 5 is pricey and its a @#$@$#% pain in the @ss taking that roll pin out for your bolt release.

What's a Magpul MIAD postal grip? Does it make you go postal?

Honestly I have the miad, and got rid of it. The MOE+ rubberized is so much more comfortable not to mention grippy. I have them on ALL my builds.

The Troy is a bit better because the contacts points (where my fat fingers actuate the lever) are a little bigger and the texturing is a bit more aggressive. I swear its a bit lighter too, but I'm not about take mine off to measure the weight over a quarter oz. Either works, but if I were to buy another, I'd go Troy or EBRv2.
