Just purchased a seekins precision lower and im waiting on my nic check. Got a DPMS lower parts kit to put it together. This is my first build. For u vets out there is there anything i should look out for while building my first build. I think imma go with a econ build for my first one to see how it goes.
Read the AR Primer sticky, it'll answer a lot of questions.
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.

Take your time. I didn't end up liking my first build, and am having trouble selling a Spikes Upper Receiver Group for almost a month. Unless I wanna take a 25% loss on a lightly used upper, I'm gonna have it for a while.
