Hey guys, I'm starting to shop for a complete kit to make use of a stripped lower I have.

I know of Del-Ton, RRA, and a few others I found online, but I thought I'd consult the brain trust here to see what you guys recommend as being the best quality for the dollar.

I'm looking to end up with a 16" flattop M4-gery type, nothing fancy.

I know that RRA is highly regarded, but at around $650 for their kits, they are also almost $200 more than someone like Del-Ton, which is another highly regarded outfit.

Guide me!

Thanks!

RRA isn't the worst but it is probably not as well regarded as you would think. That said, for a complete kit, try hitting up AR15sales.com and get a complete Stag Arms kit.

$638.00 and it comes with a mag.

Better quality than RRA or Del-Ton.

Interesting, and thanks. I see you don't have them listed on your site, but do YOU sell complete kits? I'd like to support a fellow GT'er if I could! :)

THIS!! Have put 2 of them together and they are terrific! Fit well in LRB and Essential Arms lowers!

This is likely to be a good deal, BUT for the money IMHO the Del-Ton kit at $485 is a better VALUE. I'm NOT saying it is a better rifle, but a better value.
One of the things I prefer about Del Ton is the ability to spec EXACTLY what I want. The Stag kits did not offer the variations that I prefer.

Temporary thread detour, sorry `bout that.

Thanks, that is a scan of my original beret flash from when I got out in `76, that's why it is off center, my photo editing skills are lacking.

We now return you to your originally scheduled discussion.

I had no idea you could get into a Stag for that kind of price. I have been looking at Doublestar and DPMS in an effort to get a CAR15 buiilt this year. I was going to use a Fulton Armory lower and slick side upper but since that upper comes with a sight and rail included I may rethink that. My old eyes would rather have optics anyway.

Yes, sorry for the hijack.

There has been a group sale going for some time over at ar15.com. The second one is running now and the wait time is supposed down to weeks now. I got 2 from the first buy and like them.

plus lower receiver:

I have put together about three of these for myself. They are outstanding for the price.
