I am one the edge of starting my first build and could use a little advice. I got in on the PSA group buy and got a pair of lowers. They came in yesterday and I am super happy, what a deal. I am looking to put together a 24" prairie dog blaster. I am new to the AR-15 and at this point not sure I want to put much money in buying tools so I have been looking at 24" varmint kits. I had been thinking of getting a model1sales 24" stainless kit, but I read some posts about issues with model1 parts, customer service and some sort of credit card scam. Suffice to say I'm not real interested in dealing with any of that. I have a pal who did a model1 build 4 or so years ago and was happy with it hence my initial interest in their kits. I'm fairly budget conscious, but don't want to sacrifice accuracy. Does anyone have a preferred kit provider that might offer what I'm looking for? I had also considered getting a PSA lower build kit and an assembled upper. Any recommendations on an assembled 24" SS bull upper at a reasonable price? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

I have been happy with my 26" White Oak Arms. Price was reasonable as was turn around time.
