I second rock river. All their parts can be shipped to your house except for the lower recover since it has the serial number on it. That you need the ffl for. I didn't build mine but this one is all rock river.

Of the two, I would go with the Scar. However, you might wanna wait a bit. Beretta has a new rifle that's not available in America yet, but should be soon, and from what I've seen should be an outstanding rifle. I believe it's called the RX160 or something along those lines.

The SCAR that civvies can buy is not an assault rifle.

They're not. The real SCAR is select fire.

Take this for example, there are all sorts of cars that people race with professionally, for my example I'm going to use a Corvette. Tons of professional racers race with Corvettes. Now say I go buy a 'Vette, is my car considered a race car? No, it's not.

The same applies to rifles. The military uses assault rifles, civvies have what we like to call Sport Utility Rifles.

Okay so explain to me why you would get one lower from one manufacturer, one upper from another...seems like you would just buy a complete rifle straight up.

And also how does a guy know which parts are compatable with others?. For instance could one put any Daniel Defense upper on a RRA lower and everything be fine?.

As far as getting parts from different makers and piecing an AR together, some people enjoy doing research for each part, and love to tinker with their guns. Don't let that overwhelm you if that isn't something you do. The shop I work at sells a lot of rock river and lewis machine and tool ARs. Go with a reputable maker and spend a little extra and get a quality model.
I personally own a LMT 16" piston with a monolithic rail platform, I went with the piston because I run it with a suppressor, which creates extra gas blowback in the barrel. Making the added carbon and heat from a gas impingement system worse. I opted to add the weight to reduce a potential problem caused by other attachments. The gas impingement system is proven, pistons have their advantages, but there is a tradeoff for everything.
If this is your first ' battle rifle' get a quality basic package, you can play with extras as you have the money to do so, but you'll be well set spending a little extra on a good rifle right off the bat. If you like the look of a particular rifle, go for it.

I'm thinking that I may just buy a Daniel defense complete setup. Are they pretty descent?

I was actually in the market for a SCAR or an ACR come next year, but after reading this ill just stick to my M4.

And a +1 to getting a DD setup, I love mine and wouldn't trade it for anything. Had it for over a year and a half now with zero problems.

Broke, I'd lose the SCAR and definitely the ACR and term "assault rifle" unless you're buying a select fire.

Yes, DD is decent, in fact one of the best. I'm very happy with mine and many others here are as well.
