I want to build an AR-15h?

I would like to build it completely, but not sure if I want to go through the headspacing and making sure I line up the sights correctly. Plus, I don't have the vice and other tools necessary to for piecing together the entire upper assembly. At least not for now. I plan on building more guns in the future and will buy tools as time goes on.

My friend also recommended that I go with a Colt bolt carrier assemly. So, what company besides Bushmaster (comments on bushmaster uppers would be helpful too) sells complete uppers with flat-top receivers minus the bolt carrier assembly and charging handle? I mean, is Bushmaster fine or is there something better?

I am going to use a titanium firing pin and DPMS lower receiver kit. I'll go with a 6 position buttstock and I already have the lower receiver.

Thoughts, comments would be helpful. Thanks.

Why not post a build question in the build forum?

The titanium coated FP is a horrible idea.

why such a bad idea?

They tend to be brittle, and there is no real gain over the standard firing pin.

From Forest; What is an A1, A2, A3 or A4?
