The only experience I've had w/ CMMG was w/ their dedicated .22 which has a rail that doesn't seem quite right because of the way the optics mount sits on it.
I figured since he said he wouldn't mind doing some of the assembly, a build would result in a better AR in the long run. Just need you guru's to guide him on the path to excellence.

I'm just not 100% behind doing a complete assembly at home. Lowers really aren't all that difficult but I prefer factory built uppers.

That's why I recommended building the lower but buying an upper from BCM. I listen to you all. I ain't no Einstein, but I ain't no short busser either! Ya'll done learnt me!

I have decided to build my lower and purchase the upper. Where do you guys recommend I get the parts for my lower? Is it a kit? Do I buy each part separate? If so where can I find a parts list? This is going to be good!

If you want a Magpul stock, I highly suggest DSG Arms, they sell the buffer assembly with the stocks at a really good price.
like this

I've had very good luck with Palmetto State Armory Lower parks kits. $50.

just find and upper and a stripped lower and you are golden.

Here's where I got my lower:

http://palmettostatearmory.com/index.php/firearms/receivers/psa-ar15-lower.html

Here's one way to do the lower parts kit, but you'll need to order more parts:

http://www.bravocompanyusa.com/AR15-Lower-Parts-and-Kits-s/46.htm

Here's the one I ordered:

http://palmettostatearmory.com/index.php/ar-15-05/lower-parts/moe-lower-build-kit.html

For the upper and other little bits? They are highly personal, so pick and choose what makes you feel all warm fuzzy, ask the guru's on here, and have fun!!

well, I went with DSG because I wanted a Magpul ACS.

http://dsgarms.com/ProductInfo/MAG370BLKKIT.aspx


its was cheaper than getting the PSA MOE lower build kit and adding an ACS. If you want the MOE stock, then the PSA is the best route to go. If you want to order off the PSA build kit menu, it was cheaper to go with DSG for the ACS or CTR and get a classic lpk from PSA.
