I finally bit the bullet and started on my first EBR. I've ordered the Doublestar Stripped Lower from Buds Gun Shop (http://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/product_info.php/products_id/411534767). I'm looking at the Del-Ton 16" M4 Rifle Kit RKT100 (http://www.del-ton.com/Rifle_Kit_p/rkt100.htm) that contains the rest of the parts needed. I need to decide about a few things like handguards --- I'm leaning to something with rails rather than the standard handguard for flexibility; and for sights installing a scope and going with a flip up front sight rather than the fixed sight. Any thoughts, Dillinger I'm going the build route for the fun of building my own and I need to save some money so I can finally get my M-1 Garand without my wife evicting me.
