My first Ar15 build
I was looking around online trying to find the best ar15 and came to the conclusion I can build a great one for the same money or less. I was wondering if anyone could help me with picking the right parts. Starting with the best lower receiver and so on

What will you use it for? How heavy/light can it be? What kind of optics do you want? What weather will it see?

I live in michigan so the weather varies. I don't want the rifle to be too heavy but I don't want it to light either. I plan on using the ar for plinking and tactical training. As for sights I'm not sure yet
