    just ordered a RRA lpk, RRA 2stage trigger, and a RRA winter trigger guard today. went through a box of stuff i had laying around and found a RRA collapsable stock (& buffer) and the original pistol grip for my other AR. so I ended up taking the Hogue off of that to go to this build

    i would love to build my own, but i have no idea where to begin. i know about all the sites on the interwebs, but i end up getting lost. a good parts list would be great, if anyone has one. :dunno:

    name brand lower, Rock River parts kit from adcofirearms.com, print the
    instructions from AR15.com. Lower is built in 20 minutes.

    Upper...unless you have a vice and are willing to buy the few specialized tools
    I would just opt for an "off the shelf" upper in the design you want/need.

    I watched user 'idleprocess' build his until I got bored and fell asleep, it's not
    that hard.....unless you let one of the detent springs fly across the room and
    end up spending 30 minutes looking for it :mamoru:

    :cool:

    I'll be buying a lower once my damn shop gets a p22 in so I can get it at the same time. They sell Spike Tactical lowers (I think?) for 110.

    Oh and that adcofirearms.com link is awesome, they've got great prices. I'll be ordering my parts kit and stock from there :wavey: Any one have the magpul trigger gaurd? Is it worth the extra 20 bucks or no?

    Yea I'm doing the RRA parts kit, magpul trigger guard, and hogue grip. I was thinking about the RRA winter guard but I think I like the magpul a little better even if it is a little bit more expensive.

    Question: What does VLTOR mean?

    Answer: VLTOR is the ancient Roman spelling for the Latin word ULTOR, meaning "Avenger". This word was commonly used to describe the Roman God of War "Mars".
