I'm thinking about contracting someone to build my first AR. I'm brand new to this.
Who do you suggest I enlist to build my weapon?

This is what I'm thinking about for my first build.

VLTOR Vis monolithic upper
16" barrel (SOCOM barrel. Is this possible with mid-length gas?)
Gen II lower from Noveske
A2 Stock
I like a fixed front sight so I may do that along with a BUIS rear
Daniel Denfense Lower parts kit
Buffer tube, buffer

Anything you would do differently, anything I'm missing?

I can make things very simple.

Buy this (shipped to your FFL): BCM complete Lower (

Then buy this: BCM upper (, also a BCM bolt carrier group.

Then, when you get them, put them together....voila!


Being this is your first AR...

A Colt from Wal-mart will be a great rifle to learn with.

I say this because if you're new to the "AR thing", then I highly suggest a simple rifle, lots of magazines and ammo, and a good class before you scout the internet for a bunch of "high-end" parts and having some random person cobble them together.
