    So I have always wanted to own an AR. I was just getting into getting one when the Newtown stuff happened. I no longer had the funds to justify getting one at that time. Then I moved here from CT. I figured I had to have the TX flag lower, so I started there. I then got some funds put away and started looking for some inexpensive but decent stuff to finish her off. I ended up going with the following:

    PSA 16" M4 Premium SS12G2 upper
    Magpul MOE Lower Build Kit
    PSA 5.56 Premium HPT/MPI Full Auto Bolt Carrier Group
    Basic Charging Handle


    Hopefully all will be here in about 3 weeks. i"m pretty dang excited!

    It's fun and really pretty easy. The biggest thing you'll have to keep an eye out for is springs and detents going flying. Mainly the spring that holds in the rear takedown pin (easy to fly out if the plate rotates putting in the buffer tube.) Second one is the piece that stops the buffer from moving forward. If you back the tube out, that can go shooting off as well.

    My tips for you:

    1: buy a spare set of detents and springs.
    2: have a large trash bag.
    3: vice grip and electrical tape are your friends.

    Thanks all for the tips! My original order confirmation said 15 business days for shipment, but just got an email that it should arrive on Monday the 14th. As you can imagine, I'm way past excited.

    I just built my first one and am ready to do another. Only had 1 flying detent and spring.

    Sent from an undisclosed location.
