i want to start building an ar 15 this summer. i would like to avoid buying premade uppers, lowers, basically everything pre assembled. i know it will be hella expensive to buy all the nuts and bolts and all the parts individually, and i have found a few websites that sell parts packages for all aspects of the gun.

what would some of you who have built an ar15 before recommend as this is my first build, and i would like to keep it as cheap as i can, seeing how i want to put the entire thing together myself. im going to find a guide on assembling an ar 15, but im not to worried about finishing quick. id rather finish with a gun built entirely by me, for me.

Start with a lower receiver. Get the FFL work out of the way so you can order stuff with no BS.

I would go with Eagle Arms because they are manufactured by Armorlite. There are no tolerance or spec differences in them, they come off the same line but are priced around $90 instead of $250 (the reason for this is so they can put lower quality components in it and sell them for less with out hurting their name, so stay away from their barrels).
