I just moved here from Florida and I gotta admit it would be a great place to live if it weren't for the unnecessary gun laws. Anyway, I'd like to build myself an AR and id like to hear what you guys would recommend. I know about the bullet button, off list lowers, and 10 round mags but is there anything else i should know?
thanks

You should look into a complete Daniel Defense. Not a bad price for such a great gun.

Or build one... I recommend a BCM upper for most all builds. But what are you looking for? 16in, 20in?

Where you located...we can set you up with friendly local dealers.

I'm in Dublin, bay area. I'm not made of money so which ever option would be cheaper would be nice. I liked the sound of putting together a gun piece by piece but i certainly wouldn't mind buying one at a store or a used one. Actually i look at the private arms sales on this website just about every day

-calguns lower from riflegear.com
-BCM upper of your choice
-RRA parts kit with stage 2 trigger

those are my suggestions

I just ordered a Daniel Defense XV from Peach State Guns. They have them on sale for $949 and for $989 they will install a bullet button and ship it with a 10rd mag.

Plus if you get it before the end of the year or while supplies last, Daniel Defense will give you a $250 gift card.

My local gun shop opens tomorrow, I'm hoping my rifle will be there and I can start the 10 day wait.

You're probably better off buying one. You can find them for the same price as a build and it's complete. Save up $800 or so dollars and you'll find something you like.

I'll second the Daniel Defense, they are very solid. You could spend a lot more money and get very little in return. $800 is a good ballpark figure for a quality, entry-level AR.

buying a gun complete is really convenient. my issue was that i wanted so many different things i found building to easier. plus its hard for me to spend $1000+ at one time =]
