I'm a sissy. I prefer factory built/assembled ARs (uppers mostly).
You really should read Spitty's build thread, pretty inspiring and impressive .... might toughen you up some


With that said I am in favor of assembling your own - if you have played with legos you can assemble an AR. If not than decide on what you want to do and accomplsih with the AR, then decide on a price point. From there you will easily get a dozen or more manufactures to compare. Then it's just a matter of comparing spec's and reviews to get what you want and what you feel is important to you.

Oh, don't forget to read the stickies and build threads - more information contained in them than one could possible ask for

I tried but don't have access. Dropped my paid membership. I definitely need some toughening up. I'm fairly bashful.

Why do I get the feeling my chain's being yanked again!

The biggest issue with assembling an AR isn't so much getting the parts together right - it's getting the right parts together. You'll remember the quality of a gun long after you forget how much you paid for it.
