Which Ar-15 lower receiver?

Well I seem to have gotten the Black Rifle itch. After 2 Mini-14's in various configurations I figured on getting an Ar-15. This is Due to (1)better accuracy @ 100 yard shots from straight out of the box (2) parts and magazines are more plentiful and cheaper than the mini.

This will be a hands on assembly project in order to (1) Save some frogskins (2) gain some insight about the operation of the ar-15. I am looking mainly for quality and durability in the parts @ a decent price range.

So the big questions are:

Which lower receiver should I purchase?

Which upper Assembly should I purchase. I prefer to get a 16 inch barrel with chrome lining as I hear they last more rounds.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated as this will be my first Ar.:ar15: :ar15: :D

If you have the money...I think one of the best units is the Les Baer ARs. If you have ever held one, it is a piece of craftsmanship. You can tell by looking and working it that a lot of time has gone into the making of his units. But then again there is:
Wilsons, Stoner's, Bushmaster, Rock River, DPMS. Olympic Arms, Panther Arms, Fulton Arms. The list goes on and on.

I do think that Rock River Arms is an up and coming rifle. Its not that over prices.
I personally have an Olympic Arms PCR-16. It has the bull barrel and I have added an Bushmaster two stage trigger, along with an AC4 Pneumatic Buffer. Harris Bipod and a 6 x 20 power scope. This weapon can shoot......:D
Here is a web site that has a lot of the above weapons listed and should help you.
