Just curious if this looks about right, Ive followed as much info as I can find on here and I think this should just about get me up and running

Not certain but i think you have to have a paid membership for the photos to show up on the page. On the other hand, we cant see what you have in your picture there. Its too blurry to read.

It looks good but I'm not thinking clearly so maybe someone else will double-check. One issue I had when I built my lower was the LPK -fcg did not include a trigger guard roll pin (and my Seekins trigger guard did not include one either). I had to order one to finish the build. That may or may not be an issue for you.

As for your pics showing up, I believe 3 paid members have to approve it before it shows up until you get a certain number of posts. Or something like that.

You should check out YouTube videos on how to build a lower receiver and that would show you everything you need.

On another note, do you realize you're spending over $600 on a lower?  It's none of my business if you can afford it, but I built my whole AR for under $700 and it was exactly what I wanted.

Might wanna go on PSA's website - they always have tons of deals.  Currently, they have a 4th of July sale going on.

He's got a Mega Arms lower, upgraded Timmeny drop in trigger, upgraded grip and stock so yea it'll be more than a base model palmetto....I'm guessing though he's content ordering what he wants.

Dustin - As far as what you have there looks good.  BTW how'd you get your image to finally show up in post?  Enjoy the build!

Well I have no idea how the picture finally showed up but I guess im glad it did. As far as the money Ill have tied up in the lower yeah its more then needed I guess but I am able to spend that kind of money right now. The BCM upper was $800 so with this ill have like 1500 invested but from everything Ive read ill have a damn good rifle. I started this with a budget of $1000 but as I read more and learned a little here and there I bumped it to 2k.....is that expensive, well yeah lol even if I can afford it its still a lot of money.  This will be my pride and joy gun and Ill be a little more reserved on the next one. I have read a lot of post on here and realize a lot of guys build pretty decent guns under a grand which is where ill stay on the next one (hopefully if I dont get carried away again) yall dont lie, this shit really is an addiction Ive got 15 open windows on my computer right now all with AR stuff open in them lol

Already happening lol

Looks like a sweet build.   Make sure you spend a few bucks and get the tools you'll need to put it together as well.  I built my first five sitting at my desk and holding the lower with my legs, while its doable a bench vise and the mag block makes life much easier.   Also I don't use punches, I prefer to press in my pins with either a C clamp or a pair of modified channel locks.   Add a small drop of oil on the end of the pin and its quick, easy and painless.  

Thankfully theirs no treatment for this addiction.
