Hi.
I am brand new to AR-15's and am building a buy list. I got most of these parts names from someone else and looked them up and priced them. Can I PLEASE get some help checking this list and what I still need or what is wrong on the list?
Thanx!

Looks like you still need:
A stripped upper reciever
A bolt and bolt carrier
A lower Parts Kit
A gas block/gas tube
A barrel nut
Forward assist assembly
Forward assist spring
Ejection cover spring

It would be much easier on you if you bought an upper with forward assist and ejection port cover installed, and a complete barrel assembly.

Also, are you aware of the legalities of owning a 14.5 inch barrel? Unless you register it as a short barreled rifle, you will need to pin and weld the muzzle device to the barrel and ensure that it is at least 16" long. Preferably 16.1" to avoid any measurment issues.

Buy this and a stripped lower.

Or, at least look at what it comes with, which is everything you'll need, minus the stripped lower receiver.
