I paid right around 1000 for my all bcm middy with the bhf lightweight upper. Only thing would be to expand on spare parts.

I wouldnt buy another ar15 as ive got my bases covered. Wife has a bcm she loves ive got a precision ar15 and a match grade A2 and bringing up the rear a colt sp1.

M16 BCG, BCM gunfighter CH, MBUS flip sights
PSA/Magpul STR lower build kit

Whether that's a "tier 1" gun or not is in the eye of the beholder I suppose. Probably it's a "1.5". Once I add a Vortex Sparc, it'll be a pretty even money swap for the DPMS funds. So all that really matters to me is that I substantially upgraded for free. Some of my stuff is still in the UPS system, will get a pic of the build up in a couple weeks.

All of the build has been purchased over the last 3 weeks. So the point is, good stuff can be had at fair prices even now. But you've got to know where to look and it doesn't sit on the virtual shelves for very long.
Very smart upgrade Sweeper! I dunno, those components sound pretty darn Tier 1 to me! Sounds like the perfect reason for breaking the rule of not giving up the bird in hand to get the two in the bush. Now if those little birdies just come flying in over the next weeks!
The biggest issue with assembling an AR isn't so much getting the parts together right - it's getting the right parts together.
