So i am gonna go with a monster man build/stag lower.

If i buy the complete a2 stock, lower, parts kit, ambi safety, and MMG..do i need any other parts than a complete upper?

Like does the lower parts kit come with the screws to connect upper and lower.

I just need to know so i don't have to pay for shipping for one screw or something dumb like that.

Thanks.

That should complete the lower. The only thing to make sure of is that you get a COMPLETE A2 stock and not just the stock. The complete stock will come with the stock, receiver extension, buffer, and buffer spring. If you don't have a good set of punches or a good wrench, you might want to get those while you are at it, but they are not required as the A2 stock can be put on with a screw driver and adjustable wrench. If it were a CAR stock you would need a spanner wrench.

So the parts kit or the upper comes with the screw/pin to attach the upper and lower?

The lower parts kit comes with the push pins. They are not screws (MUCH older Colts used screws, but modern ARs do NOT). They are actually push pins with a channel that a spring loaded detent rides in to keep them tight and locked in place when the action is closed.

ETA: And there are two of them; one for the front and one for the back.
