Hi, Been watching the forums here for a bit now. Some excellent info here. Plan on building my own AR-15 soon.
I plan on buying a stripped lower soon. I'll go with the standard 5.56 nato, be able to use that and the .223 rem ammo. Also looking at going with .308 though.
Just wanted to say thanks for all the info and tips. Sure are a lot of options parts wise. Searching the distributors online though, its just hard to find parts in stock. Looking at grabbing a LMT stripped lower. I'll end up buying a complete upper because I just don't feel confident about assembling the barrel to the upper. Figure I'd save money by not having me messing something up. When I do buy the upper, if I decide to go with .308 or .556, they would both work with the LMT lower I bought correct? I think thats correct but want to make sure.
Anyhow, look forward to meeting you guys. I'm usually quiet though. Army veteran and a retired firefighter. Just looking for a very reliable rifle that is easy to clean, never jams, and can shoot targets from 300 yards. I'd like to shoot at the range twice a month.
