You'll need a bolt carrier group, and a charging handle.

For the BCG, I recommend a BCM (full auto) BCG. They are very well made. They made be a little hard to find though. Before the panic, they are about $140-$160. Now they are about $180-$200. You MAY be able to find one closer to pre panic prices if you shop around.

In case your wondering why I suggested you get a full auto BCG vs a semi auto, a full auto BCG is heavier than the semi auto BCG. This means it will travel slower, and thus be a little more reliable.

As for the charging handle, I use a BCM gunfighter with a medium latch. A LOT of people swear by them.

thanks a lot for the suggestions.

for an extra $219, BCM includes a charging handle and a BCG, but they don't say which one. http://www.bravocompanyusa.com/BCM-16-Mid-Length-Upper-Receiver-Group-p/bcm-urg-mid-16.htm
