So, I decide to built the cheapest/most reliable AR that I could and here is what I've done thus far:

-PTAC Complete Upper:  $299.00
-Anderson Stripped Lower:  $48.80
-PSA Lower Parts Kits, Minus Trigger:  $30.
-Magpul Angled Fore Grip:  $25
-Magpul Handguard:  $21.57
-Magpul Rear Flip-up Site:  $38.25
-Magpul Pistol Grip: $12.58
-Tactical Link Battery Assist Lever:  $25.00
-Odin Extended Magazine Release:  $22.00
-KNS Anit-Rotation Pins:  $23.00
-Magpul Trigger Guard:  $5.38
-RRA Stage Two Trigger:  $75.00
-Core 15 Charging Handle:  Free (donated)

Total:  $625.58

My goal was to try and stay under $650 and it looks like I have enough money left over for some ammo!  Now I just need for it all to get here, can't wait!  

Semper Fi...

Be sure to post pics when its done!  Sound pretty nice...except ditch the KNS pins.

Haha, I was actually just thinking about doing that!  Putting a cheap stock on,  I'm a dealer for Magpul and just about everything else, so I just might save my money and get a better one.  Once I get her together I'll be sure to post some pics...

Bolt is a from PSA, a carpenter 158.  Was thinking about getting their nickel boron one for I think a $100.  Anyone have any thoughts about doing that?

It's still there.  I'm a dealer for PSA, so I get it a little cheaper, not much though.   A matter a fact anyone interested in just about anything let me know...

Also, bought the PTAC 300 blackout complete upper for $300 from PSA, so for under a grand I have a pretty good set-up.  I think I can get at least two more of these uppers.  If anyone is interested let me know...

Also, PSA at the moment seems to have the PTAC complete upper in stock.

Add a Magpul buttstock, 6-H&K magazines (traded) and an engraved ejection port cover.  Still under my what I wanted to spend, just a little less ammo...LOL.  Good thing I already have quite a bit...

Well, over my budget!  Just bought an Eotech 512, oh well so much for some extra ammo...LOL
