This thread is made for anyone who has an AR-15 or in the process of obtaining/building one. I was wondering what would be the best setup starting from scratch? (Parts, kits, etc.)

Depends on the usage. Self defense, training classes, hunting, varmint shooting, competition. The list is nearly endless

The best parts are the ones you buy that are in your price range that will effectively do what you want it to do and function properly and accurately .
Best answer I can give you :D

Curious, what is the purpose of the first sentence? You make it sound like you're going to provide answers, not ask. Oh well, forget it... I'm just ODing on political-speak and crafty wording before an election. :D

I think you should seriously consider 1:7 twist. I built with 1:9 twist, but would want to switch to 1:7, but I've already purchased "too much" 62 grain ammo to feel okay about switching out the barrel. There are a lot of awesome 69-75 grain offerings that I wished I could fire.

In answer to your main question, however, I suggest one builds a lower from parts and purchases a complete upper/barrel/gas system online. I did learn, however, that even though one could save money this way, it is more common that one buys better stuff this way and ends up spending MORE than buying a complete AR at the LGS.

Do you have an AR? If not, have you ever broken one down, even for cleaning, and if so, how far did you take it? These are questions you need to ask yourself, and then you will start answering your own question. Your own skill level with maintenance should be your guide. My suggestion is to invest in one of the DVD's available from one of the manufacturers of AR's that go into the assembly/dissasembly of the AR. Bushmaster comes to mind off the top of my head, there are others as well. Good luck with your endeavor.
