Default PSA AR to order

I'm always shopping, always keeping my options open, and always looking at stuff. Pocket book has a lot to say in anything I do though. Some of you AR guys take a look at this. This is hypothetical of course, at least for now, but would a man need anything other than this to get his AR of choice built and ready to go? Other than the magazines and ammo of course...

I really like that kit.

What you have linked is all you'll need.

In fact I'm trying to decide b/w that and going w/ a M16A4 look-a-like w/ KAC rail similar to the one I was issued in basic training or their M4 and adding the 7" KAC rail like the ones we used once at my permanent unit.

Let me know what you go w/ as I'm really interested in a review.

I've been wanting to get a 1911, but as I mentioned in another thread, if things keep going the way I think they will, I don't know how much longer I'd be able to get the AR of my choice (especially considering how scarce money is in my household). I already have a good hand gun that I'm quite fond of.

What about tools? Assume I don't have any, what would be needed? And I wouldn't be trying to build a new one all the time, so cheap but workable is more desired.

I'd like one with a KAC rail like the A4 too, but I simply can't find the exact one I'd want, and I also like the A2 style anyway, so no biggie there. The A2 is what I was issued in boot camp, the A4 came about a couple years later in the Marines. I shot better with the A2, I think it was due to the size of the fore end, and even though I like a rail, I would also like being able to remove the hand guards easily for cleaning the dust and grit out from under them.

Is there any kind of attachment that will add a short rail under this type of hand guard, just to mount a forward grip?

Don't forget your rear sight or optic. Other than that, gtg.

These mount to the standard handguard.

Carry handle with rear sight is an add on option with that upper. Its what I'm used to, so its what I'd go with, and maybe upgrade to a good optic later.

Just remember not to order them at the same time. PSA's warning on the lower order page.

"Due to Federal law, if you order an AR15 lower and AR15 parts, we will have to add an additional 11% Federal Excise Tax to the purchase price of the AR15 lower and AR15 parts. This amount will not be reflected in your shopping cart or on your invoice, but will be added when your order is processed."

Yeah, I figured on having the rifle kit shipped to the house, and just ordering the stripped lower through a local ffl. They might even have one in stock at the store, you never know.

Thanks for that link, exactly what I was talking about.

Wife is cool with the idea, especially since its a good bit cheaper than the 1911 I want. All that remains to be seen is how much a car its going to cost me, and what strikes me as a must have if/when I have money in hand. I have a habit of changing my mind at the last moment.

I've emptied and restocked the cart about 30 different times at PSA and armalite's website just since last night!
