    no permits, check this site for complete rifles!
    http://cmmginc.secure-mall.com/shop/?shop=1&cart=972651&cat=33&

    Dont be afraid of 'used' rifles, they tend to work BETTER than new ones due to breakin.
    You'll need the company you buy from to get your FFL's info and they will ship it to him, and you will pick it up from the FFL for a fee ($20-40 depending).
    AR's are EASY to put together. btw, the regulated part is the lower reciever. You can mix/match any upper you want. ar15.com has so much info, you'll crap yourself.

    Good Luck
    ETA- besure you check compliance and local laws before ordering (IE no hicaps in Kali or NY, etc...)

    My reccomendation go with a cmmg bargain bin gun.
    http://cmmginc.secure-mall.com/shop/?shop=1&cat=33
    I think one of the 550 dollar ones will serve you well they are basically all new on the inside. I'd reccomend the 16" M4 it is lightweight and will support most bullet weights. No labor involved and your gonna pay a transfer fee anyways.

    As for your question if you do use those kits go a3 not a2.
    Stripped lower will be 100 to 130 dollars , Plus a transfer fee sometimes 50 dollars at some shops.

    So your looking at 550 for a non chrome lined gun with parts made by god knows who.

    Great minds..!

    Also, for lower recievers, if you want to go that route, I recommend Cavalry Arms polymer lowers. They work and work and are light (ETA and economical). Bushy Carbon-15's they are NOT. That is, they work.

    But yea, Stag, RRA, all good.

    As much as I hate the brady campaign. Quickest info to find. Notice the quotations.

    "ASSAULT WEAPONS"
    Are there limitations on "assault weapons"? No
    Iowa - No state restriction on the sale or possession of military-style semiautomatic assault weapons. Assault weapons are as easy to buy as hunting rifles. Congress and President Bush allowed the federal assault weapons ban to sunset in 2004. See also: Large Capacity Ammunition Magazines

    Bushmaster lower
    Stag Upper
    YHM Handguards
    Caa Foregrip
    Single point sling
    Eotech (bushmaster holosight)

    I use the soft case because I can sling it over my back.

    It's deja vu...I just saw this shit on arfcom ha

    Don't even bother with them. Spend the money and get quality stuff. You can still do a budget build with good quality parts. Don't buy an assembled upper, put it together yourself. Buy the most basic stock, lower, barrel, parts kit, hand gaurd, etc.
