Agent Tikki has a sticky at the top of this section of the forum, and is definitely a must read for anyone looking to build their first. He, mjkeat, Quentin and Dog will be along shortly to chime in, but I'd build my own lower, and order a completed upper from BCM, as well as a good BCG (Bolt Carrier Group) and charging handle.
Finishing my first build, and those guys advice was crucial to me saving money and getting what I wanted.
I did mine for about 900, including shipping and handling.
BCM outsources all of their parts, Cmmg makes all of theirs. I have BCMs uppers as well as CMMG and ill take CMMG over BCM any day. Mine is more accurate less play with spikes lower and much better finish on the barrel

just a fyi. your responding to a post that is a little over a year old. the person your responding to may not be looking at this thread anymore.

and just a fyi on ccmg. they dont tell ya what goes into the parts or the BCG or the stats on the metal used. bcm does that its listed on every single product with their name on it on the webpage.

Actually a better comparison is BCM acquires quality parts from various trusted sources while Daniel Defense actually makes most of their parts. Yes they go about it differently but the final products are among the best you can buy. CMMG is all right but not in the same league and I doubt they make all their parts.

BTW, you shouldn't have any trouble finding folks willing to trade CMMG (and similar quality) for BCM!

You people are BCM fan boys. BCM company assembles rifles, they probably buy from CMMG at times. I talk from experience, military and civilian. I own both uppers and in my opinion CMMG is a better bang for the buck.

Nothing at all wrong with CMMG.
Some of them even offer CHF barrels depending on the model.

If your LGS asks 1200 for it , it should be that model (which was 1100 last year)

Or if u are getting a entry level for 900 use the rest of your budget for a nice optics OR extra Ammo

There're good reasons to be a BCM "fanboy". I won't bother to repeat them here.

However if you want to compare bang for the buck then you have to choose PSA over CMMG!

Sorry to all the BCM guys, I just wanted to give my humble unbiased opinion.
