    Keep us updated as you continue building. :D

    If you don't mind me asking, how much did the lower and the lower parts kit run you and from where?

    Lower: $140
    Anderson Parts kit: $45
    Upper: $105
    I probably could have saved some money online but I bought them at my LGS

    Thanks! I'm just trying to get an idea is all.

    My plan right now is to get that charging handle extended latch installed on my current AR when it comes in soon. Then run 2 or 3 rounds to sight in my scope, and I'm good to go.


    And then I wanna pretty much just a build a list of things for a future AR build. May go with a pistol. But I'm deciding weather I should build it from a kit. Or build it from scratch as in build the upper and the lower.

    You gotta get better pistol grip than the mil spec style- maybe it’s just me- but those things are super uncomfortable

    Build it from scratch if you're planning on using top grade parts for reliability / precision / accuracy.
    Or, buy a kit if you don't care about those qualities in a gun.

    Just to be safe, going in in a few min , give both carry pistols and the AR some love.
    Tomorrow is to be possibly an interesting day.
    A Trump train and rally , and a BLM protest led by an individual I'm beginning to think is unhinged, at the same time in a town with 3 red lights, 2 streets , and 1 public area at a small park available for both to use.
    The BLM side has already been seen snooping around town this evening and tonight.
    Should be educational at min .

    Do I use the new roll pin and spring that’s coming with my charging handle extended latch or can I just use the ones that are already installed in the charging handle? And that way I just swap out the latch.

    did you just swap out the latch or did you also change the roll pin and spring as well?
