This ar build is getting more and more expensive with all the suggestion lol xD but I know it will be one hell of an AR that I won't be able to buy pre-assembled at the same price. This isn't my personal defense AR or competition rifle so I don't really want to spend too much over the $800 range on it. I'm trying to stick to standard mil spec that's all lol. Though I really appreciate all the information I'm getting from you guys because if I have a chance to put together a quality rifle I will definitely know what is what now. I think I might have finalized on what I need. Waiting on someone about transferring the spike stripped lower from aim and my credit card lol. Hopefully I will have it complete within the next month or so.

You can always build a baseline, mil-spec AR, and upgrade as you see fit and when you can afford it. . . (or whenever you get a credit line increase it sounds like )

First card isn't it? Be careful. . . I did not heed the warnings of others and I'm still paying 10+ years later.

Nah not my first card. I just didn't want to pay for all of this at one so I'm getting a new credit card with introductory APR so I can take my time with it. And you just really remind me that the AR is more upgradable. I think I might minimize my build a bit for now and just upgrade as I go and take my time with it.

PS: I was looking at daniel defense upper receiver group and they're much cheaper than BCM and they are all CFH barrels too bad they're all out of stock. Up to 6 weeks wait time if I want one T.T

I found this thread and it answered many questions I haven't even asked yet, thought it deserved a bump.
