Hello Everyone,

Long time guest, first time poster. Just like so many other people who have started a first time build thread I figured I might as well join in the fun. My CFO (the wife) has approved funding for my first AR build (with my own money, I love her). So I wanted to make this post so people can follow my new adventure and what ever ups and downs it brings me. What I want to put together is a long range shooter so as of now most things are down on paper, so here is what my list looks like.

Body:
Mega Billet Matched Set

Upper:
Lilja 24" 1:8 twist wylde chamber SS barrel
JP Adjustable Gas Block
VTAC Modular Hand Guard
BCM Bolt Carrier Group

Lower:
ACE Skeleton Buttstock or a Magpul PRS
Trigger - JP Enterprises, Timney, the list goes on
LPK - not sure what to get yet
Grip - not sure what to get yet, something that feels solid.
California Fail Button

Mis:
Harris Bipod
Optics

If anyone has any sugestions on a LPK, trigger, grip any help would be great. Im used to stock triggers so never had the change to really shoot something else. I plan on taking a trip to Cold War Shooters tomorrow to get some things started. Take care everyone.

Well trigger kit depends on what you plan on doing with the rifle, seems you have some nice parts, a 2 stage would be what you want.. Timney, Geissele, seem to have great reviews.

Check out this thread:

Here's a RRA 2 stage kit from RifleGear.com

Grip wise I like the Hogue rubber grip, feels solid; but again its kinda a personal preference, the Magpul MIAD has intagrated trigger guard & storage if that's something you may need. Ergo also makes a pistol grip with a palm rest as well, so maybe try to find a local store that has some in stock you can try.

Thanks sytfu_RR, I will see if CWS has grips I can try out before I buy.

evidens83, I did say the parts are just on paper. As soon as I get some stuff in hand pics will go up :)

Here is a small update with a picture. I have placed my order for my Lilja barrel but ETA for that is :confused::banghead: but worth the wait. I also placed my order for the Mega Billet matching lower and upper set, my 10 days starts today. When I get my Mega parts I will take pics of those as well. What I have with me are the following:

Magpul MIAD grip
RRA LPK w/NM trigger
2 10rd mags
