Stag Arms Lower Receiver Parts Kit with Ambi Selector
Stag Arms Tactical 6-Position Stock Assembly
CMMG 16" M4 Upper
RRA LAR-15 Forged Lower Receiver
Bullet Button & Bullet Tool Combo
C Products 10 Round 30 Magazine .223/5.56mm
Added: car stock spanner wrench

Would this be complete?

I'm really ready for my first build, but I'm new at this, so far I have tried to read each and every thread possible on here and I have learned allot, thanks to all the helpful members on this forum :D

P.S If I'm missing something in parts please let me know, also, I remember someone posted a guide on how to put everything together but I lost the link, can someone please post the guide. Thanks

EDIT: I found the guide (http://www.calguns.net/OLL/assembly.html)

oh and a punch set would be a good investment too, cheap and effective! i think i paid like $12 at the local hardware store.

If ya need any help building it, send me a PM. I'm in San Jose, could help ya out if you needed something.

It is very easy to build a lower, as I have proven. :) If ya have it done by Sat, I was thinking of going up to Sunnyvale. Have ya purchased anything yet?

Ammo, lots and lots of ammo :)

Sounds like you have everything you need listed there except I am a big fan of the magpul enhanced trigger guard - makes for a nice look. I'd even swap the ambi-selector for the enh trigger guard in your case. The ambi-selector is not quite so critical when you have a normal pistol grip (unless you are a leftie). Or you could get both. Then again, a PRI big latch is nice too, etc... It never ends :D

Thanks, What ammo works best for you? I'm thinking of .223 Wolf 55gr HP, because they are cheap and the reviews aren't that bad

You will probably need a rear sight for that upper. or a scope or red dot.

I would buy a couple extra 10rd mags.

Any 223 or 5.56 ammo that goes boom is fine for plinking. Miwall reloads, Wolf, etc. etc.

Be aware that if you shoot at a range that does not allow steel jacketed/core ammunition you probably won't be able to shoot Wolf.

I think if you do a search, you'll find that Wolf is not the favorite .223 ammo here. It's only attribute is that it's cheap. It's also dirty, inaccurate, inconsistent and steel-cased (the last of which may or may not be a real issue). There are a lot of good online dealers for ammo. Two faves of mine are http://www.outdoormarksman.com/ (which often has good deals on reloads if you want to go that route) and http://www.aimsurplus.com/ You'll find many others.

All your list is missing is an hour of your time (maybe two if you suck with detent pins like me) and lots of ammo :44:
