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 are thinking Ar 15 think That's where you can find most of the makers on there indstury page and you can find some good deals on parts in threre equeptment exchange. Some good places to get lowers and uppers are armalite,bushmaster,RRA and dpms as long as you buy a forged upper and lower with a good barrel you will be ok .I have heard some bad post about ASA modle 1 and M&A mainly costomer service but I have never heard any bad stuff about RRA.
I was doing the same thing you are about 9months ago I was tired of the inauccary of my mini and the lack of good aftermarket parts so I thought "I'll build a AR15 "What I found in my case was by the time I buy a lower +parts kit +good trigger+ butt stock = plus 4 diffrent shipping charges 99+50+90+50 +5+5+5+5=320 That does'nt include the tool you will need .Or I can buy a RRA national match complete lower put together by the factory with the factory warranty for 300 shipped.I found the same thing with the upper .A stripped upper+barrell+hand guard +bolt carrier group=100+200+50+100=450 or I can buy a complete upper from RRA for 480 thats 30 bucks more for a factory assembled fully warrantied ready to go upper.And agian I did'nt include the tools you would need to build your own upper.
