    Actually, a plain old A2 will do the job Just fine. Keep it simple.

    New to forum, kinda new to ARs, first build.

    PSA... = good stuff. I like the blem lowers, haven't found a blem yet. I used a carbine stock lower, with a 20"C7A1 Barrel upper. Talk about a fun rig !

    Help Finding First AR-15

    i think ? knowing what i know now.. i would get an A1 with a pencil barrel. light weight .. and the wife could shoot it just fine. think colt 604. building one is very simple. learn the iron sights first. ..... of course I'm a 20" rifle fan.. I' m over six foot too. i built a C7/A1 clone.. and can't get it back from my better half.. she loves it. and she's a lefty.

    Buffer question

    i run a 20" rifle gas .. with carbine six position stock.. i researched it out .. seems the poster above is correct .. the Canadians have been running rifle uppers and carbine stocks for years.. with an H2 buffer. I've ran mine withzero problems. i also run a rifle gas dissipator 16" with stadard carbine spring and buffer NO problems. altho i did open gas port to 110
