I have a couple serialized lowers and want to build on them.  Not sure what caliber yet, maybe 300BO and another 223.  What do I need to look for when shopping?  Is it an upper?  Upper kit?  Upper Kit and trigger kit?  I have not built one yet and am a bit overwhelmed.  Thanks for any help!

This is just for Uppers

a) Stripped uppers- will need barrel, forward assist, hand guard, gas block, gas tube, charging handle, bolt carrier group + knowledge and skill to assemble

b) complete upper- still need, everything except forward assist

c) complete upper assembly- everything except bolt carrier group

d) complete upper assembly w/BCG- need sights of some kind (unless an A2)

From what I've read on the interwebz YMMV

Sell the lowers while this market is red hot ! This is your best option currently.

You need a lower parts kit and a stock with buffer tube and spring first.

You can either build your own upper from a stripped upper or buy one that is already assembled.

There are quite a few places you can get the parts you need.  However, a lot of things are in short supply or out of stock at a lot of vendors these days.
