Ok I admit Im a dummy. I know about enough to get myself in trouble. But I am learning. So my question is: I thinking about getting myself a lower and building up an AR. What are peoples experience with this. Any brands to recommend? Any to stay away from. Do you have any tricks or tools that you cant live without? I know all about AR15.com and M4carbine.com, but they are huge and I am not really sure where to start. (drinking out of 55 gal barrel with a straw always come to mind)
Here is what I want. I want a fun/utility gun that is accurate and light weight. Equally fun to carry as to shoot at the range. And a way to learn about a cool rifle.
