Default Finally starting my first build!

I have been contemplating starting a lower build to compliment a nice PSA upper I picked up a couple weeks back. I was originally going to go with a Spikes stripped lower but I found a deal at a gun show today I couldn't pass on. I was able to pick up this PSA stripped lower for $60 with bullet safety selector marks.
I am thinking I will go with a RRA lower kit with the two stage trigger and some Magpul furniture.
I already have a Spikes FA BCG and BCM gunfighter charging handle. Can't wait to get started. imageuploadedbyfirearms-talk1394315132.230624.jpg

You certainly have everything needed for a high quality rifle. Nice to see one that is not full of "bargain" priced parts. Enjoy your build time and shooting afterward. Yesterday I just had to take one of mine out and destroy a large number of basaltic rocks.

Sounds like you're coming along real well. Good parts! As far as the back ordered RRA lower, are you committed to it or can you back out (if the price isn't good)?
