I am sure you guys see these posts way too often, but in the next couple of days I will be ordering my first AR from spikes and just wanted to get some feedback quick to make sure there's nothing I am missing or if anyone has any advice since I keep jumping back and forth between build ideas.
plan right now is a Spikes lower with the ST enhanced parts kit installed, a m4 LE midlength upper (trying to decide if the LW barrel is worth it) or this upper with the BAR installed (not sure what length to choose, thinking 12 to cover the gas block but not sure how that will effect the overall balance of the rifle. Planning to put a leatherwood CMR or similar style (1 - 4x illuminated ) on it, but open to suggestions here as well. Also planning on a Magpul CTR stock.
Planning on using the rifle for practicing at the range (only goes up to 100 yards ) and some target shooting / small game hunting on BLM land from time to time.
Thanks for your time, I have read all through these forums, and many others, just want to make sure I do this right.
