After just about 5 years on this site, I finally have an AR.

I built the lower last month and had been waiting to find an upper.

Just got back from the shop where I picked up a complete 16" upper for $399. They let me switch out the CAR handguards it came with for a set of Magpul MOE handguards for an additional $15.

Specs are:

Spikes Zombie Lower
DPMS LPK
Magpul MOE Stock
Magpul MOE grip
16" DTI M4 barrel, 1/7 with railed gas block
DPMS Upper Receiver
RRA BCG
Magpul MOE handguards
10/20 P-Mag

Now I just need an optic and I'm good to go.

Looks nice. Kinda sucks to have that railed gas block cuz now you need rear and front sights. If you had the stock FSB you could have just slapped a cheapo carry handle on for the time being. I give it 1 month b4 you start planning your next build :D

I chose the railed gas block. I don't like the lookj of the FSB. And I already have lower #2.

Until I can afford something better, I'm probably gonna go with a Primary Arms M4.

I've only seen carry handles that cost a hundred dollars. Where are the "cheapo" ones?

Nice AR, and congrats on your first build! Just finished my first build as well, and your rifle looks almost like a clone of mine!!

Nice rifle! Magpul was a great way to go! As optics are concerned, I would pick up back up iron sights first(like magpuls) before getting an optic. I wish I had...

But this is just my opinion.

Vortex Strikefire..... It already comes with the correct mount, and it's a wopping $149.
