What are your opinions on building vs. buying a lightweight (16" barrel, ACE skeleton stock) AR? Can one be built for ~$700? Everything bought seperate (brand name parts only) and assembled by me.(GULP)

that is what i did,,BUSHY LS barrel, DPMS lo-pro upper, ace stock, Oly lower..it came in under 700easily..

The chamber is part of the barrel, correct? Not a separate upper receiver piece? Does RRA have mil-spec lowers? If so, I've been thinking about slapping together a Frankengun with RRA Lower, some upper with milled feed ramps(not sure what has these) and the Bushmaster barrel also feed ramped by Kurts. Is this possible to do?
