Help with my AR build.
 
1 Attachment(s)
DISCLAIMER: I know my tag says I'm from NY, but I am staying in Missouri when I finish college.

So, I finally did it...I began my AR build. For the stock, I am going to go with the Ace ARFX Skeleton Stock (http://i545.photobucket.com/albums/h...7/DSCN2509.jpg)

But I'm not totally sure what I want to do with the upper. All I know is that I'd like an A3 upper and I'm building on a bit of a budget...I have a basic lower parts kit, trigger and A2 grip (I plan on upgrading later when the money comes, but for now, I just want to complete the rifle)

Suggestions welcome.

You can turn a budget build into a tier 1 rifle using BCM parts. And it will look pretty.

Just because ive seen them slap a hunter with a felony myself, youre not on a campus are you? Having a firearm on a campus is a felony (not that I agree with it) so just wanted you to know. That lower is considered a firearm and the background of your pictures look exactly like my old dorm room haha. BTW, PSA rocks. Nice start. Hows that stock weight wise?

Crazy deal on the upper . $400 Aimpoint and basically getting the PSA mid length 16" upper for $199

Throw in these 2 and you have a great, complete reliable upper for around $370

Aw man....If the deal didn't end tomorrow, it'd be mine...I'd have the money in a month or two.

I'm with JonM on this one...
BCM is top notch...
Well worth waiting an extra paycheck or two
Same with Daniel defense, Noveske, etc.

Oooh...that's not a bad deal, but I really want a midlength upper. I was looking at this, but there doesn't seem to be a brand on the lower...
