O.K. I got my first build under my belt. Mega stripped lower and a 20" E2 kit from M&A. Went together without a hitch. Now for my second lower I want to use a mega flat top upper and build the whole rifle myself.
The rifle I just built is my brothers. I own a Bushmaster M4. I want a target quality rifle. At least one within a reasonable budget. I am thinking a 20" stainless steel barrel, with full float handguards. Do I need a two stage trigger. I will admit right off I don't know just what that is. How are they different? I am familiar with set triggers. I am also familiar with triggers like Bold and Timney on regular hunting rifles. I have both. I have access to all the tools needed so that is not a problem.
I just need to get my parts list together so I can start buying the parts. I figure that will be half the fun. So please give me ideas.

The 2 stage triggers do make a difference...stock triggers can range from bad to horrid hehehe...not much else. My Armalite 2 stage is great, and even though I've tweaked all my other rifles with either lower power springs, or cutting one leg off and bending the trigger spring as per the "15 minute trigger job", they're only passable. If I had enough money, I'd send away for 4 of the RRA match triggers.
