Well I sold my AR15 a while back, now I'm wanting to build another. I really liked my last one (Double Star's lightweight kit) And now I want to build something similar, but with more options. I'm looking to do something with a 16" flutted HBAR style barrel. I have a lower almost completely built. I'm not looking to spend a ton of money on it, so my choices would be going with a company like, Model 1 Sales, Double Star (again), Stag, DPMS, Bushmaster, and anyone else out there that builds a lower from 300-500 dollars. What have you guys had good luck with?

I would stick with DPMS, Stag, or Doublestar, from my personal experience.

Never messed with Bushmaster ( Heard they are GTG), Delton, or Model 1.

And Doublestar is in our homestate!

From the companies listed, I'd go with Stag any day.

For an HBAR with fluting I'd get a Bushmaster or RRA and send it off to ADCO for the flutes. Look at PKFirearms.com for complete uppers in stock for $500ish.

Just about all those you listed are not GTG, unless you are just talking about the lower or upper without any of their parts installed. Specifically DPMS and Bushmaster.

The OP is looking at Lowers.

This
but he probably meant to say upper

DoubleStar. They have some nice fluted barrels. This one is a bull, but they do have fluted HBARs.

of what you listed as your options I would go with double star, but look at BCM for an upper of better quality while also not spending a ton

Take a look at Spikes- they make great lowers and uppers...

Very good deal if you know a FFL, and your going to put the LPK in, or get one complete.
