Get a 5.56 barrel if youre gonna go with the standard .223 build. Knowing that my AR will eat any .223 round I put into it is comfortable.
Also I agree with BigHoss. Save money on the LPK and stripped lower. I got a CMMG lpk, $55 off gunbroker. Included everything I needed except the buffer and stock.
I told the new me,
"Meet me at the bus station and hold a sign that reads: 'Today is the first day of the rest of your life.'"
But the old me met me with a sign that read: "Welcome back."
