Hello everyone.

I would like to begin to build an M4Gery, now, I'm not exactly sure where to begin, so if you kind folks could point me in a good direction, I would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,

Erik

I'm in the process of building an M4 as well and got the majority of my research off of this site by using the SEARCH feature; there are numerous threads with advice and where to look.

The easiest way to start is with one of the M4 barrels or upper assemblies from [url=ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=7&f=22&t=156897]CMMG[/url] on the EE! These barrels are really sweeet, and are available in 14.5" or 16", pre- or post-ban.

Thanks for the KIND REPLY KELLER! Notack, many thanks friend. I'll be sure to scope it out. I have a Pre-Ban SP-1 Carbine lower, I assume I could use that, yes? Thanks, Erik

yes, pre or postban will be legal but I'd go with the 14.5" preban if I was you

Your pre-ban lower is a great piece to start with, however since its a Colt, there could be some pin size issues. Someone more knowledgeable about Colts should be able to answer.

Yes Erik, you can! Decide on what kind of upper you want. [img]http://www.imagestation.com/picture/sraid77/p4c0c3f2306d79052ca2698255252efcb/fb39ca89.jpg[/img] SP1 upper and lower. Bushmaster 14.5" barrel w/ perm. attached Phantom. If you don't care for the slick side upper, a Colt Sporter (A2) upper with large front pivot pin will also fit. [url]http://www.danieldefense.com/[/url] makes a flat top that'll fit if you're so inclined. [:P]

Gentlemen, Thank you. I was thinking about getting the Bushmaster 16" M4 Complete Upper with the A3 detachable carry hand, in case I decide to mount an EOTech, or an Aimpoint down the line. I don't particularly want a carry handle mount. Any other similar uppers would be great, if you can reccomend one. The fellow at Bushmaster said I would of course need a larger pin up front, and I believe he said it is six bucks or so. No big deal. I prefer to have a detachable flash hider because at some point down the road, I would like to get a suppressor for it, preferably, a KAC. Only the best.:) Any thoughts on the Bushie upper, or any other reccomendations? Erik
