    The options are limitless.

    Do you want it to be Tacticool? SHTF? Competition? lightweight?

    I'm putting a Magpul CTR on mine. Seems like a good compromise between price and performance.

    Im just going to go with the standard A2 stock due to the fact im building a varmint rifle and want it to feel more like a rifle. All im putting on it is scope and bi-pod, i have my mini 14's as my tactical's/ rabbit guns. I should have my ar-15 built in the next couple weeks. i cant decide between a 24 inch barrel with 1-8 twist or a 20 inch barrel with 1-9 twist. Any help would be great guys:) oh and im going with a low rider DPMS upper or whats any advantages to the hi rails i will be shooting prown or laying down most of the time.:thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:

    Nice lower you got there.... :thumbup: Looks familliar...LOL.

    Glad you like it,

    I would chime in by saying go with a 24 inch barrel if you are gonna bipod it, the only thing is that really is a large upper.

    It is up to you though.

    Whatever you do, I am sure it will be great and will gladly help you along the way.

    You won't be disappointed by Magpul.
    They have nice stuff and it is all very functional.

    Depends on the role.

    For a varmint/target rifle, I prefer a full stock. I usually go with an A2. However, smaller people may like an A1 better.

    I recently swapped out the VLTOR, and MagPul M93Bs for the MagPul MOE (cheaper CTR).

    Unless you want to spend money, don't bother with the MagPul PRS. It's very heavy and the cheekpiece is useless on an AR.

    Or...that basic M4 stock has worked well.
