    Will be a slow one at that. Picked up a stripped lower from RRA today in 5.56. Not sure what all I'm going to buy for the build. Will be a range toy/ varmint gun. Will shoot the cheapest available ammo.

    I assumed it would be interchangeable. Just deciding on a lpk. May order one tonight. Easy mil spec single stage. But whom? DPMS? RRA? CMMG? Blahhhhhh...

    Thanks tikki, for now ill be getting a DPMS lpk with a tapco stock set. Has the buffer and all. I want to get up and shooting cheaper that way, but plan on a tigger upgrade eventually. I have to wait til I get paid too.... Damn the free shipping lol.

    Gahhhhh stay away from the dpms lpk. Ive had several dpms parts breakage on their lpk bolt catch and disconector. Get the rra lpk. Great choice on the lower. The rra lowers are pretty damn good. My current build im using an rra lower

    JonM, I read some things. I'll spend the extra and get the RRA lpk with the same stock and buffer/ stock set. It's only about $30 more that way.

    Went by my favorite lgs today. Didn't plan to buy a thing, got a doublestar lpk tho. Our local Leo's use them. They are based in the town next to me. Buy local. Lol

    Sweet.

    Now you can get the Magpul stock seperately. I really liked the look and feel of the CTR an went with that.

    Keep on trucking. Won't be long an you'll be putting it all together. Look forward to seeing your finished product!
