Do you have a lower yet? PSA has them in stock.

I'm in the same predicament as you. For my first AR15 build I would like to get parts that have both quality and value. Anybody have recommendations?

I'm nearly finished with my first build... I started with a spike colored lower $140 out the door @LGS pre-panic... then parts kit from palmetto buffer/stock from eBay... upper, barrel, gas tube/block and comp from Midway still trying to source a bcg... parts are out there but to be honest, expensive isn't always quality... for example, why spend 300+ on a rail system when you could buy a barrel and upper for that... first you have to decide what this rifle is for, then decide on the budget, then start buying... have fun
