New Member, New Builder AR 15


I am looking for some direction on about a $ 700.00 to $ 800.00 build.

I am not sure what upper to pair with what lower, to achieve the best results.

I would like to build an AR 15 w/ a 16" barrel, Free floating quad rail handguard, mid-length gas system.

I am not sure whether to purchase a complete upper assembly, or piece one together.

Also I would like a little input on brand names.


This is a really good quality upper with the specs that you where asking for. The upper is $199 with FREE shipping so add a bcg and lower and you would be well under the $700-$800


Match the upper from the above post with a lower build kit and a AERO Precision lower receiver and that would be a nice complete build.
