Alrighty, it's been about five years since I built my last AR from the ground up. A lot of new geewiz parts and accessories have come along since then. I need some ideas. Here are the basics. I am starting with a Spike's Tactical lower receiver. I plan to incorporate a 16" free-floating barrel, A3 upper, four sided rail handguard, flip up sights front and rear, and collapsible buttstock. I need some ideas and suggestions as to vendors who provide high quality cutting edge components.

The Vltor VIS system is an A3 style upper with integrated rail forearm. For sights Troy and Noveske are good. I also prefer the Smith Enterprises Vortex flash hiders.

What is your budget?
If you are going all out then I would go as followed, BCM 16" carbine or middy depending on what you want, I prefer the middy. throw on a 10" Larue, or Daniel Defense rail, MBUS sights or Troy. One of Magpul's awesome stocks, I personally like the CTR the best. Magpul MIAD grip and a Larue FUG. Then for muzzle device, all out Triple Tap for compensated I also like the PWS and for flash hiders I like Vortex. Followed with some kind of tac-lite (I like Surfire E2 series) and then an optic of your choice, for a build like this I would opt for a T1. YMMV

As far as getting what you want, hit the site vendors Bravo, Larue, and PK. are my personal favorites. My best piece of advise is buy once cry once.

ETA: if you want to build the upper Noveske makes a top notch barrel, and BCM has a new CHF Barrel that is also suppose to be top notch.

These will be my next two "builds"



#1 will be my first SBR, probable a BCM lower and 11.5 BCM upper, Daniel Defense lite rail, Magpul BUIS, Aimpoint CompML2, and Noveske KX3.

#2 I am building for my 6th month old son , it will be his KISS rifle, just a Colt 6520, with Magpul MOE furniture
