I checked out the site and first impressions weren't that great.

Here's the SOG I know of. I have one of their knives and it has been great and is sharp as hell even 8 years later.
SOG Specialty Knives & Tools, LLC

When you click on "Details" on their 'COLT "Style" G.I. Milspec' upper this is all you get:

no details and a price of $800!

16" <font color="red">5.56 NATO/.223 Rem</font> A3/M4 Flat Top, Barrel Assembly with M4 Handguard (Includes Bolt, Carrier, and Charging Handle)

Just followed the link. $800 for an unknown upper when you can get a complete rifle for under $800 from Spikes or around $900 from BCM and Colt!? STUPID.

The funny thing is there are people who will purchase it.

Yeah I thought that was funny when I clicked details and got nothing. $800 for what?

Meanwhile for hundreds less, even after adding the BCG, CH and handguards, you can get this (with lots of details, all excellent!):

BCM 16" Mid Length LIGHT WEIGHT Upper Receiver Group

Here's the problem, you don't care if they know what they're doing - YOU must know what YOU'RE doing and buy the right parts. You're not locked in to these guys are you? If not you can put any upper on that lower so why not get something good. I really don't think these guys are your friends.

Are you locked in? Do you have to buy the whole rifle from them?

i am not locked into anybody sure any upper will bolt onto my lower.. not tryin to build a budget rifle either that why i am gonna build the upper so i can get all the stuff i want a little at a time..
My biggest prob is i have always been into handguns and this will be my first AR i have no clue what parts and brands r good and witch ones r junk.. the only thing i have decided at this point is i like a flat top upper, shorter barrel (best quility i can get), around 16", and a free floating hand rail system.

Writing poorly like a child makes it difficult for anyone to assess your age and ability. Respect for your reader - i.e. clearly formed and written questions - will get you better answers.
