First build, need help!
OK, so this is my first ar build. I have been picking up parts a few at a time so I don't break the bank. So far this is what I have, spikes lower with dpms parts kit, dpms buffer tube, magpul Moe trigger guard (od green), and a geissele ssa two stage trigger. Thus for I'll only have around 50 into the build. What can I say I do a lot of trading :-) . So now its a bout time to start the upper :-\ . I know some of the parts I want in the upper.
-Spikes flat top upper
- spikes 16 in 1/8 twist midlength chrome lined barrel
- yhm diamond rifle length free float.
as far as everything else, im up in the air. So if you have any suggestions or parts u no longer need, im interested in buying/ trading.

If you know what parts you want, what is the problem?

Got most of my lower parts in the mail today. Need a take down pin spring, my son stole it out of the parts bucket. Anyone have one I'll gladly buy it. Then time for a stock. Was thinking magpul ctr. What do y'all think? After that, time for the upper. :-) pics to come. This app is messing up.

I'd get another barrel, imho Spikes oversizes the gas port on their barrels.

What would you suggest around the same price range?

Since u like Spike's and wanting a Spike's upper. Just wait for aimsurplus to have this item: %22+Elite+CHF+5.56%2f.223+Upper+Receiver&groupid=3 01&search=spike

I would, but I'm set on building piece by piece. Just on of those things. One thing about buying a complete upper, I'd be buying parts twice. I have to have rifle length quad rail, or else my support hand would be on the barrel. :-\

I have a Green Mountain barrel and it shoots great. I also use a midwest industry extended rifle quad. She looks great. :D
