I'm tired of waiting on guns that may or may not get released, so I'm building my own. I need you'lls advice. Which upper is better- a Stag Arms upper or a Rock River upper?

Rec7 is $2,600 bucks. I have a bunch of parts already. I'm just looking for a good (nothing gold plated) shooter that I could use back home also for hunting if need be. I'm leaning towards the Rock River A3 upper.

Picked up some parts for the project. Got a double star stripped lower, a Magpul Miad Modular Grip, a chip mccormick trigger, and I have been eyeballing a Leupold Mark 4 CQ/T Tactical Scope. Still have to deside on the 6.8 upper, stock, and mags.

Yea I saw that, ar15performance makes some really nice shooters. To tell ya the truth, I'm building this gun on the cheap (as a beater). Got most of the parts from buddies so far (freebees). Trying to save my money for one of the four: Steyr Aug, Bushmaster ACR, FN Scar Heavy, or Kel Tech RFB.

I still new to this whole thing...Is an AR fully functional with a complete upper and lower, or are there other parts that are needed?

Bullets :D

Building an AR is really easy. I just don't feel like messing around with the upper so I'm getting a complete upper w/bolt, carrier, and charging rod in a A3 receiver, 16" CAR BBl.

When it comes in you slap it on the lower, push two push pins and away you go.

Nice, thanks devildoc. I thought I was sold on the FS2000 but I can't justify the cost of the weapon with ammo and mags at this time. looking at the noveske upper with a separate lower,buttstock,mags, sling, ammo, I'm still going to be spending less than the FS2000 itself.

For 6.8 try Silver State Armory.

On the issue of Ammo, Hey I'm getting 6.8 SPC from Co Bon, Remington, Silver State Armory, Hornady, and Double Tap. I live in Marine Corps Country. I have 7 USMC bases, 1 Army Base, and 1 Air force Base all around me. Bullets are usually not an issue around here. Bullet prices are. Grrrrrrrrrr.

Well I just pulled the trigger, I went ahead and ordered a Rock River 6.8 SPC upper. I'm tied of looking around for one. They said it will ship in 12 weeks. Tick Tock. So I guess I'll just stock up on ammo and mags till then.

Looks, like I missed this one by a bit, but I was going to suggest taking a look at Cardinal Armory's stuff. I built mine on a CMT upper with one of their barrels and it works great.
