Default First AR Build

I am going to attempt my first AR build this winter and was hoping to get started on the research. Can anyone point me towards some good literature or websites to help me get started. This will be my first build so go easy on me. Thanks guys.

I'd start at the top of this section. There is a how to guide and some builds that were done by people just like you.

I don't know if you already know the differences in the lenghts of the ARs, but this page helped me understand the different lengths
