I would like to build a complet rifle with a midlength flat top upper. I'd also like to build a 6.8 upper as well and the lower to go with both. Where is a good source for quality parts. I've heard you can save by building but from what I've seen it isn't very much. Point me in the right direction.

You can check the Equipment Exchange (EE) for rifles, parts and accessories at good prices. Just be sure that you know who you're buying from before you throw any money around.

Buy your parts from Bushmaster.

Building one yourself is best done for reasons other than trying to save money.

Lurk here awhile.

I would disagree, saving money is a huge reason to build AR15s.

I've built three AR15s for less then what most people pay for one.... Granted, it takes some great deals, but building can be VERY cheap.

Thanks for the quick replies! Checked out the EE and I've already found some lower prices.

Tell me more. Saving money is a good thing! Plus, I'm thinking of building for the fun of it anyway. Saving money would be a bonus. Still from what I see, by the time I buy the parts; I'm over the cost of buying one complete. Enlighten me. I've got a new credit card and no sense.

Yes, Stickman sets the standard for great deals. The kind that make most of us here jealous. My experience has been that the rewards come from enjoyment of assembly, building exactly what one wants, knowing that the build is done correctly, pride from acomplishment -- and I could include 'evil' features unavailable in a complete new rifle.

BTW, besides having a nose for deals, Stickman can take used parts and refinish them to look better than new.
