Finally took the AR build plunge.
 
I finally got this project started. I bought a stag arms striped lower. I installed a DPMS parts kit. I bought and instaled a Tapco 6 position stock last night. So I now have a complete lower.

I am looking for parts for an upper. I could just buy one. But what is the fun in that? Anybody got any upper parts they need to get rid of? I have a budget for it. It's not huge. But I want to get started. I want a flat top. I also want a 16 inch barrel. Bolt and carrier group. You get the idea right?

COngrats on the start of your build. I agree that you should build the upper as well rather than buying one. That is what I did. You will know that much more about the platform.

Oh, by the way. Pictures or it didn't happen:D

You're lower is the exact same as mine :p

I am wondering if anyone might have some left over parts that they took off to do an upgrade. I do not have anything for my upper. I think I am going to look for a left handed upper receiver and bolt. But if somebody has a righty that they want to get rid of I might be interested. I plan on letting my son shoot it too. He is right handed. I never had a left handed m16 when I was in the army...so I can work it out either way.

There was a photo of my complete lower on there when I left my house. I got to work and it was gone.

Huh? We got nothing now, but you need every component for an upper, yes??

Yup. The lower is complete. Even got a mag in it. But no upper or anything that goes on it.

I will repost the photo when I get home later.
