Starting with a stripped Palmetto lower which I got lucky yesterday on thier web site and found complete lower kit for 129.00. Ordered a Geissle SSA-E 2 stage small pin trigger, B5 Milspec SOPMOD buttstock.

Now just have to figure out which upper I want...really like the LMT and Noveske complete flat uppers.

Going to top it with Aimpoint

Found a upper at BCM, its 16" receiver group with Centurion Arms 12" handguard. Now Im looking for a bolt and charger handle.

Best part is I got $1250.00 into this gun

You'll like that Geissele. I have 3 of his triggers, and they will spoil you.

Yep, order from the mfg. directly, be patient, shop around, and you can still build an AR for a very reasonable price - and get the parts you want, too.
