I have these coming in the mail next week...

PSA 20" A4 upper
PSA blem lower
Geissele SSA-E + MOE parts kit
A1 stock
Troy rear BUIS
5 20 round P mags

Likely will get Nikon 1-4 or 2-8 to round out optics, and will be mostly shooting TAP 75 grain and Hornady 77 grain steel match in this one.

Big brown truck came today

A1 stock and 20 round PMAGS

Geissele SSA-E and PSA LPK

PSA Blem Lowers (cant find the blem on either)

Steel Match

Black Hills mk 262

I finished the lower tonight, waiting on my PSA CF 20" Upper.

I got it all put together tonight...loaded up some PMAGs with the steel match, and I'm just waiting on the upper now. The Geissele trigger is amazing and the PSA lower and parts kit are very nicely done. I love the LOP on the A1 as well. I decided to go w/ the steel match hornady and I got some mk262 from ammo to go (in 5.56 pressure).

Sounds like a fun build, congrats on your new rifle. That thing may drive nails with that setup.

Good group of parts. Should be a nice one.

I just put an SSA-E trigger in my 16" middy BCM,
It is one smooth, light trigger. I may try the SSA in
my next one. Best of luck on the build.

I don't know if they still have them in stock, but last week
AIM surplus had the Daniel Defense lower part kits in stock
for $79.00 and free shipping.

Have you looked into the Magpul MOE fixed stock? it is around the same length as the A1, but looks more modern.
