PSA rifle kit
 
I am looking at the 16" mid length light weight hammer forged kit. This will be my first ar. I looked at bcm but I don't know if I want to get in to doing an upper yet as I have never messed with putting a gun together. What is your opinions on the kit and kit vs upper + lower builds. Im am just plinker and want to step up from rimfire

The PSA kit is a fine kit but its not going to be any different than the BCM upper. They will both be built and be ready to pin on.

I assembled my lower from a PSA parts collection I ordered. My upper I ordered complete from BCM, and it's been a ball.

The main difference between the PSA kit and buying an upper are extra parts to build up a stripped lower. Either way works. I chose to go with a BCM upper last time to use on a lower with parts of my choosing.

The BCM's dont come with BCGs or charging handles right?

Nope but just order them. Your gonna have to learn to take those out to clean it anyway. It takes about 5 seconds to remove it .

I was just looking at the added cost
