Building first ar-15

Recommended Posts

I was hoping to get advice on parts people have first had experience with when building an ar-15. I have owned 2 in the past but gotten rid of them for various reasons. I am looking to build 5.56/.223 lighter weight carbine. I say lighter weight because while I'm not a gram counter, one of the reasons I got rid of one of mine previously was the crazy weight of it. I don't need some heavy bull barrel long range target gun. If I can get nice groups at 200 yards I'll be happy. I am looking to hit the $800sih mark, but I have wiggle room as I'll be buying parts when I have the extra funds. I live in VA so there's not many restrictions to what I can purchase. 


I'm starting with an Anderson Manufacturing lower. Not only do they seem to be a great bang for buck lower, I can pick them up at a local shop for online prices and don't have to pay a transfer fee.
