    That's an extremely good buy. My only gripe is their buffer tubes are 6061 Aluminium, not 7075. For most people (myself included) that's a "non-issue." PSA makes good stuff!

    Looks like a deal to me. I paid $199 a few weeks ago for the stock, buffer LPK and BCG from them. Just got it this week but haven't had time to open.

    Brutus out.

    I'm not familiar with ARs...

    What exactly do you need to complete this AR? Not sure what a stripped lower is.

    So all you need is that kit and the lower and you have an AR-15? But the lower requires an FFL, correct? But not the kit?

    Yes, So it should be easy if you take your time.

    Just want to be clear... So I can buy the kit without an FFL?

    Yes you can, except they are on back order.

    What did you pay for the kit? PSA has good stuff in my research. My only hangup with this kit is the bolt. It would be nice to have the Milspec Carpenter No. 158 bolt with the M-16 FA auto style carrier. But you can't have it all. These BCGs are here.

    Your kit should turn out fine.

    $614 shipped, so I figured another $150 for lower shipped and have something decent I can call my own. :p I feel a bit better now that its a good impulse buy.

    How hard/complicated is it to build these kits? What kind of skills do you need?
