Ok I am all set!!

PSA Premium upper with MW industries Keymod hand rail-$415

PSA bullet safety selector lower-$60

RRA LBK w NM two stage trigger- $109!!!!

Magpul ACS stock $104

PSA buffer tube kit $39.99

BCM gunfighter charging handle $45

Spikes BCG $139

Magpul MBUS flip up sights $80

Pretty good I think for right under $1000 range ready!

I'm excited to get started. A friend of mine at my LGS is going to guide me through this first one. Problem is he will be out of town 2 weeks!

I'll post pics when she's finished.

Yea I've been getting parts here and there as my budget allowed and when I found good deals. I did get my PSA upper from PSA and it was at my door in 10 days. Must have gotten lucky.
Got the stripped lower at a gun show. Was gonna get stripped RRA lower but for $60 bucks I doubt I could have done much better.

Happy to see more and more people started/ starting to build/ buying parts when the prices and availability are back to normal.
Post up some pics when it's completed please!

Sounds very similar to one I recently finished. PSA upper and bbl, MI SS rail, ACS, but with Anderson lower. Been to the range with it twice. Flawless so far. Just ordered an H2 buffer because it seems to be just a tad over gassed compared to my other 16" carb length.

Finally finished!!

I was going to wait until this weekend and have a buddy of mine at my LGS guide me through it but I started tinkering and just kept going. Before I knew it I had finished.

It was incredibly easy to do and fun as hell. The sticky at the top of this forum along with some YouTube videos were invaluable.

For you guys who have yet to build a lower and may have reservations or believe you may not have the skills to do so I can tell from experience that it is very simple. It's basically a matter of pushing in pins. If you can perform a task like unscrewing a screw you can do it. The front takedown pin is a little tedious but other than that it is pretty much idiot proof if you can navigate YouTube. This is something I didn't think I could do it by myself but I figured I could at least get the hand grip on. I kept going from there.

Thanks to all that answered my many questions! I've already got plans for another
