    I got myself a stripped lower for $120 from Henderson Defense Industries here locally, and now want to build it. What does WMD think I should do? I am considering just ordering a complete upper to finish it, as I have a CMMG lower parts kit on the way, and already have a Magpul MOE stock.

    well, what you want to do with the rifle will dictate what type of upper you want.

    Eventually, it will be my patrol rifle for work, meaning there will be a real possibility of it being used at some point in a firefight. The department has certain regulations for sights (any irons, or Aimpoint Comp M2 or ML2, or Eotech 500 series), and that the trigger cannot be adjustable. Barrel also has to be between 16 and 20 inches. Otherwise, I just want it to be a cost effective, practical rifle.

    if its going to be a duty weapon i would say get either colt, BCM, or LMT for uppers. 14.5" with a pinned phantom or vortex. and you're going to want a 1:7 barrel, but that wont be a problem with those manufacturers
