Do you have any plans? Configurations that you want? You've got to give us more than that.

Well brother that's kind of like you saying you want to build a car. A Honda ? Or Ferrari ? First step is to figure the purpose of it, once you do that, it helps guide you to your configuration. Other than that I can tell you to invest in the proper tools before you even start mutilating your parts.

Full flat top. The old m16 style stock. Maybe other calibers besides 223/556. Shorter barrel like 16-20 inches nice trigger

Are you plinking, shooting long range, CQB? The barrel length and twist will change the performance of the gun base on wich one you choose. The other caliber choices you have are 300 blackout, 6.5,6.8, 7.62x39, 5.45 if staying in the AR15 platform.
