Is there any one better than the other? I'm a newb to the AR and I don't really know what lower parts kit is better. Can somebody direct me to a decent set? And what is a good price to pay for one?

thanks

I wouldn't go cheap; stick with major manufacturers like Armalite, Bushmaster etc. Eventhough, many of the parts sold are made by the same companies, not all are.

The Brownells catalog lists a DPMS lower parts set (complete) with pistol grip for $44 (dealer price).

You may want to spring for a better trigger later, but it's still probably easier to buy a full lower parts set than trying to piece together each and every single part.

I am not a fan of the DPMS kits I bought, but that was 6 years ago.

If I were to do it all over, I would go with Armalite, Bushy or RRA. I would also be tempted to get the RRA NM trigger as an option, and I might avoid the A2 PG. I prefer the A1.

If Ten Percent doesn't have what you want, I would look into Legal Transfers LLC or Gunspoke Enterprises (on arf.com).

but before you start buying things, make sure you know what you want to end up with first.

I picked up the RR complete lower kit with the NM trigger - it is very high quality - all the parts fit - and it's complete. Easy to shop online and they shipped it in a day.

I would go with RRA. If you look on the ar15.com Equipment Exchange board, you usually be able to find a new complete kit for about $59.

I got a set of RRA lower parts and they are excellent.
Got it from legal transfer (ar15sales.com).

Yes WhiteSands. The list is for rifles not parts.

Can I then make a rifle for myself?

Detachable mag?

Obviously no mags higher than a 10 rounder .

Which parts could I not use?

I too live in California.

If you do NOT already have a registered AW, you can ONLY buy an off-list lower. After you buy the lower however, you cannot assemble your rifle in a configuration that would create a AW.

If you fix a 10 round mag so that it can ONLY be removed using a tool then you can add evil features to it. If you do NOT fix the mag (like by-bye's) then you cannot have any evil feature. If you go by-bye's route then you can have a mag getter than 30 rounds as long as you purchased the mag when it was legal to do so.

If you haven't already (and not meaning to be a smart *** but it sounds like you have not) then please take some time to read Bill's post on this issue.
