    going with the following parts, this is my first build of any type so not blowing the bank but leaving myself room for later.

    Stag A2 Buttstock Assembly (Stag A2 B/S) = $60.00
    Troy Flip Up Rear Rail Mounted Sight - Black (FBSRA4) = $140.00
    MonsterMan AR Grip - IN STOCK (Monster Man AR Grip) = $45.00
    Bushmaster Lower Parts Kit (Bushmaster LPK) = $69.99

    on the upper i got a good deal on a bushmaster M4 A3 at 468 shipped.

    just need to decide on the muzzle brake and lower receiver before the first stage of my build is done. looking to upgrade to optics later and maybey build another lower with the nice evil features and a bullet button.

    pics when the goodies arrive.

    very, very easy.

    if you have a monsterman grip, simply unscrew it as you would any other grig.

    if you have a bullet button, just pull out the assembly (long piece of plastic in the magazine release button hole), and install a normal mag release button.

    either method would take all of a few minutes.

    now i just need to decide on the lower, i know they are pretty much the same besides afew brands to stay far far away from.

    how long should this take to piece together once i have all the parts? I have never built up a rifle before but am good with this type of assembly stuff.

    1. Why would you get a "Monsterman" grip instead of just a bullet button?
    2. The A2 stock is the last one I'd go with, get a telescoping stock with the M4 upper
    3. Why Bushmaster?

    1. because you can have detachable magazines
    2. ok? the A2 is the only stock that (effectively) works with the monsterman grip
    3. :dunno:

    1. Because a bullet or other "tool" is so hard to detach the mags with

    im just saying. there are some people who like detachable mag. personally, i dont think the monsterman is comfortable to hold.

    telescoping stock not legal with detachable magazine

    i didnt go the bulletbutton route because i am going to build another reciever later for it with all the nice evil features.

    if i get bulletbutton now i would be limited to 10 round magazines also, i dont want to be dropping mags all the time while getting used to the weapon.

    All i need to convert it back from a featureless build is to swap the A2 stock for a collapsable, swap the grip for pistol, dump the 30 round mag for a 10 rounder and throw on a mag lock.

    seems like it wouldnt take more than and hour on the same reciever, and if i just throw that shit into a second receiver all i have to do is pop the drop pins and swap lowers

    easy as pie :dunno:
