what do you guys think I should go for with optics? I dont have a big budget cause im 17 and saving up is hard, but I was thinking of maybe an eotech xps2-2, or a trijicon dual-illuminated rmr on a riser, or if money is too tight, a primary arms gen 2 red dot.. let me know what you guys think

Lookin good! How about a set of quality irons. I woulnd't rush into a scope/red dot until I'm proficient with the irons thats my .02 cents

first get the irons.

An aimpoint micro would look great on there, maybe on a KAC or DD mount.

great build--I agree with others, get iron sights before jumping into a scope. This will give you time to save up money and time to do your research for a scope/red dot

Good job. I've heard great things about bcm's 14.5" middy.

...but am I the only one who read that the op is 17?

As for optics... if u don't have the funds to get a quality optic, then get some flip up sights to start. The magpul mbus are a great bang for the buck. Fwiw I love my eotech exps.

yeah you read it right, I'm 17... and I think I will go with some irons for right now, until I decide what to get

17, eh? My local shop has a minimum age requirement of 21 to buy a stripped lower, I guess because it can be built into a pistol? Oh well, nice build, have fun and be safe (and cautious of law enforcement, if shooting solo).

I thought barrels had to be 16". Can we get 14's as well?

That 14.5 looks sweet. Love it

alright, to clear this up, my dad "legally buys" my guns, but I pay for them. Once I turn 18 I get them transfered to me. And it's a 14.5" pinned to make 16.1".
