I am very inexperienced with AR's but these look like quality.

Out of The AR's i have shot i think 2 used these, both were rental guns, but never had any Fail to feeds or jamming issues
Ive melted 2 troy mags.

You need more!

That said I know nothing about AR builds so I posted something so I won't lose this thread.

I am sure I will learn a lot.

Okay, PMags $15 through Brownells, a sponsor here....

Do I have to worry about lip wear on plastic mags?

If you are spending more than $17-$21 on an AR mag you are getting ripped off.

Ohh and I suggest Pmags, or Grade 2 Mil-Spec mags with a green/tan follower.
