I don't know what would be best but I think I want a flat top without sights, a barrel that's not to heavy because i'm going to carry it hunting, that is capable of shooting 60-70 grain handloads 1/2 MOA and better. What configuration and whose parts will do it?

What are you hunting with it?

begin looking at different variations in barrels, SS, Chrome-lined, Chrom-moly, and of course overall barrel length. Then look at rifle twist ratios, 1:9, 1:8, 1:7 etc. (You will probably want to go with 1:7) You can have barrels contoured or turned down to reduce wieght. For the "most part", AR parts are all standardized with the exception of out of spec-pins, the gas block and more. Unless your up to it, you should probably have a qualified smith install your desired front sight gas block.

Here is a picture thread from the ADCO forum, It will have many variations of ARs and might help you figure out what exactly you want. Link to ADCO
