AR build parts list

Hey Everyone,

I have decided that I wanted to build an AR rifle. I just wanted to ask what other parts I need because I couldn't find the information elsewhere.

I already have the stripped lower receiver and I will be buying a lower parts kit as well.

I will also be buying a completed upper receiver

As well as a bullet button since I live in CA.

For the stock, I was planning on a DPMS

Based on this, do any of you know what other addition parts I need to get besides mags?


Thanks for your help

Why buy the DPMS upper? For the price of that upper you could buy a PSA midlength and add a BCM BCG.

As long as the LPK comes with a pistol grip and trigger guard (if you need it) you should be good to go.

I strongly recommend assembling the upper yourself. It doesn't take too many tools to do it, and you can pick and choose what parts you want. Barrel length, rate of twist, handguard, bolt carrier group, charging handle, etc.
