What next? Looking for something simple reliable under $1k, 16", and of course accurate.
Palmetto State Armory is a good place to start, their shipping is abysmal, but their prices are damn near unbeatable.
But if your budget is 1k, you should look at Bravo Company. They have top notch stuff for great prices. You can start with the complete Lower Build Kit from Palmetto state in either classic M4 stock, or my personal choice, the MOE Stock. Pick out your BCM upper, BCG, and Charging handle, and you're good to go!
Lower Build Kit = $144.99 + Shipping
This will be everything you need to complete your blem lower from PSA, assuming they don't screw up your order
BCM Upper Receiver = $439.00 + Shipping
BCM Charging Handle = $44.95 + Shipping
BCM BCG = $159 + Shipping
Total= $850 w/o shipping including the $60 for the lower. Attach any free float rail you'd like and call it a day.
With the parts listed above, you should have a accurate and extremely reliable gun. Hope this helps
