OK so I just "completed" my 2nd AR. In other words I am happy with all of the stuff I hung on these two and I am ready to start the 3rd :rofl:

http://i39.tinypic.com/rvfu3b.jpg

The 20" is a BCM upper w/BCM carry handled attached, RGB Arms lower, RRA BCG and Magpul grip with Larue sling. I wanted one as close to the M16A2 I learn to shoot in the Marines and this is pretty close :)

The 16" is a LMT upper, CMMG lower, LMT BCG, Magpul FDE furniture, Magpull MOE sling point, Troy rear single point sling attachment with Magpul FDE sling, Troy fixed rear sight, Streamlight TLR1, BCM Gunfighter medium charging handle and a Never Quit magwell grip. Set up as a HD gun. I am happy with the way it is set up.

So now I have the following to start my 3rd AR. A PSA 16" midlength upper (no BCG but I do have a extended charging handle) in stainless steel, MI folding rear sight for BUIS, a Streamlight TLR2 and a Nikon M223 1x4 scope mounted in the M223 scope mount.

So my question is I need the following and need some suggestion :)

1. BCG
2. Handguards (Drop In)
3. Lower
4. Stock
5. Pistol Grip
6. Sling attachements
7. Sling

If you were going to buy these parts what would you get. Money is not too tight and I am open to any suggestions.

Thanks :wavey:

Beautiful 20" rifle, love it. My PSA mid length rifle shoots amazingly well. This is the first AR I have ever picked up and actually felt a difference in the recoil as well as how well the rifle shoulders/balances.

I vote PSA lower to go with the upper. Why not run a PSA or BCM BCG in it? Kinda hard to beat a LMT or DD BCG too. MOE handguards are nice. I have an ergo grip and it feels kinda thin to me, I think I need the tactical deluxe model or Im just gonna go back to the MOE grip. Im not gonna chime in on a stock cause the MOE feels nice for me and Im sure your looking for something different. Sling hardware is also better left to someone else besides me. Seems like a lot of people like the Vickers sling.

Skip the third rifle, buy ammo and professional training.

I vote for this also. Maybe a nice RDS for the LMT, and then ^^^^.

1. BCG - http://www.bravocompanyusa.com/BCM-Bolt-Carrier-Group-MPI-Auto-M16-p/bcm%20bolt%20carrier%20group%20auto%20mp.htm
2. Handguards (Drop In) - http://www.midwestindustriesinc.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=category.display&category_id=64 or http://www.bravocompanyusa.com/Midwest-Industries-MCTAR-18-p/mctar-18.htm

4. Stock - http://www.bravocompanyusa.com/Magpul-CTR-Stock-Black-p/mag310%20%20black.htm and the stock mounting kit (mil-spec) http://www.bravocompanyusa.com/Stock-Hardware-Mounting-Kit-Mil-Spec-p/stock%20hardware%20kit.htm
5. Pistol Grip - uncluded in LPK
6. Sling attachements - http://www.midwestindustriesinc.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=category.display&category_id=99 or http://palmettostatearmory.com/index.php/accessories/rifle-slings/qd-push-button-swivel.html

Thanks :wavey:

I hope these suggestions help. As for sling attachments, the Midwest Industries handguard and the MAGPUL CTR stock have the places to snap in QD sling swivels. That eliminates having to buy sling attachments. All you need would be the Sling swivels I referenced.

Good advice but now that I already have the upper I have to finish it or it will drive me crazy! :rofl:

Honestly I do not ever envision myself in any type of situation where I would need any formal training. I am just a norma guy living a normal life. I can shoot reasonably well and can not even imagine ever having to change magazines during any type of defensive shooting. I know a lot of LEOs and military guys could benefits form it but to me it just does not make a heck of a lot of sense. If I ever do take any it will be for the fun of it. :wavey:

Ammo I have but could always use more :)

Thanks :) A 20" AR just "feels" right to me :wavey:

I would pick up a PSA lower, it does make sense to go with that. I like the looks of the Troy grips and stock so I might lean that way as well. The Magpul stuff is nice and I think a heck of a good deal :)

Thanks, they do help. I do like the MI stuff, what I have used in the past seemed well made :) I also agree the CTR makes sense for the sling point included. Thanks again :wavey:

Couldnt agree with you more. I built my dad a 20" A2 for christmas and took it out twice to zero it before giving it to him. Talk about a shooter, I miss it!

If you were a Marine, you know you train for the worst case and hope for the best.

I don't ever plan on using a rifle in anger again, but you can bet I sure train for it.

Because it DOES happen. Skills degrade, even though i've carried an AR on and off for half my life, I only did it for a few years professionally, and it's a very perishable skill.

No debate that being prepared is wise :) I am not against training, nor do I think I am skilled enough not to need it. But I am going to build this last AR first! :rofl:
