    My first AR15 build - parts list

    I'm going to buy individual parts for my first AR and first build. I have a friend who is a gun smith who will help me out. The more I shop the more excited I get

    UTG Quad Rail Handguard - $59.95
    **10% OFF ALL PRODUCTS! Use " stimulus " As Coupon Code On Your Order Form.
    KZ M73 Picatinny Forend - $50


    Gas Block (w/rail):
    NEEDED



    Grand total = ???

    Plus shipping...

    Question:
    Am I missing anything?



    Notes:
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    To make things cheaper, look at the Aero Precision lower/DPMS parts kit $119.99
    + Mil spec buffer tube assembly, MOE stock, grip, and trigger guard.

    VS

    Mil-Spec MOE Stock, MOE grip, MOE Trigger Guard, CMMG Lowers Parts Kit and Mil-Spec buffer tube assembly. - $149
    Spikes Tactical - $89
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Getting rid of the delta ring ($10.50), barrel nut ($8.95), and the handguard cap ($3) would give me $22.45 + the MOE handguard ($28.49) = $50.94. For $49.01 more I could have the YHM Lightweight Tactical Free Float + $18.95 for the cap.

    del-ton is good to go. I have a delton middy hasnt had any problems. However my only complaint is they do use heavy barrel profile, I believe RRA does as well.

    Welcome to the forum.

    I hate to say this, but you should really spend some time browsing through the stickys as the top of each section and use the search function.

    That said, Del-ton is not held in high regard around here.

    Del-Ton

    Del-Ton isn't a good choice. SAW did have Colt LPK's for $200. May be too much for you.

    Depending on the intended use, Del-Ton has been a good service company for me and the parts were good for the intended use, casual shooting, target, ect.

    In a midlength, Delton has a decent reputation as a plinker. For long term, high round count reliability, you can do better, their prices are low for a reason.

    BCM makes high quality uppers and they have lower kits that will serve you well.

    That's a pretty good idea. For the price the RRA rifle kit seems like a better option. $200 more than the del ton and $750-$800 for a full RRA is pretty cheap... I think.

    That's another good idea.

    Secretly, I was hoping everyone on here would say Del-ton was great.

    Why is a heavy barrel profile bad?

    Not to sound like a jerk, but for that kind of money you should be able to purchase most, if not all, the quality parts you need to make a Tier 1 rifle.

    Any particular reason you want to go with a kit as opposed to purchasing an already assembled rifle?

    I don't know why you'd pay that much for a "parts kit" when you can get a NIB Colt for a few hundred more, and then sell the take off's off it, and recoup at least $100 if not more.



    If funds are an issue save another month or whatever and get something built with quality not some lumped together parts kit with who knows what quality parts. It just doesnt make sense to me to skimp out when you are already spending that kind of money. But its your gun so do whatever you want.
