need more input
 
Would you guys buy this at this price + the FFL fees which are 25.00 for me. Or can I get a much better rifle for just a little over what that costs? I already have a magpul CRT stock on my 15-22 and the miad grip. So I don't need those. Thanks for all your guys help with this.

Don't know if this will just bring you to the site or the cart at checkout but ill try anyway.

So which model (or parts) is it? Your link just brings up an empty shopping cart for me.

Also which model do you want? I'm partial to the 16" lightweight midlength.

Anyway, PSA gives you a lot of rifle for the money. They are highly recommended.

I want a mid length 16" barrel. A2 barrel. Be able to shoot both 5.56 and .223 accurately. Mostly .223 since most of my taxes I pay go to non drug tested welfare leeches! Don't care about the stock and grip. I have a set to put on it. Flat top with handle sight and front A2 post sight. Prefer chrome lined but from what I read I will be fine with chrome moly vanadium. Just basically an all around fun shooter to an accurate shot with a scope and SHTF rifle.

Do you guys think I should just buy one or build one. Which will be cheaper but still have good reliability. And I don't know but I just feel weird mix matching different manufacturer parts. Feels like its not going to work well or look weird when done. I don't know crap about ar15's though. I'm learning slowly.

Depends on what's on sale and what's in stock. A PSA model as you described can be had for $700-750 if you hit a sale. Or they may have a complete upper at a great price but no lowers in stock. It all depends. I hit their sale on my upper for $280 and charging handle for $15. BCG wasn't in stock, so I went with BCM. I got my stripped lower locally. YMMV.

ETA

Most of us who build end up with mixed parts and no problems. My PSA upper is on an ArmaLite lower and looks/works fine. Do enough research, dont buy junk parts and you'll be fine.

if your nervous about building one, and you plan on getting all the parts from the same company. you may as well just buy one of the rifles they have on sale. they will be about the same price. play with it untill you become comfortable, and then build one to match your needs and likes later.

OK. Bought a spikes stripped lower with the bullet safety design. Paid more than I should have but I couldn't find them anywhere else in stock. Now I am going to buy a LPK for it. Any suggestions on what kind to buy. Or should I just go for the upper first.

The PSA lower parts kits are good. I have been using the PSA LPK with J&P yellow spings in my first two builds. I love the feel of the PSA triggers with the J & P yellow springs, trigger is light but crisp with about an 1/8" of travel before breaking.
