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

Yes, excellent mags, excellent price, and I have also purchased from J&T, and am very happy with the deal. You done good.

Try for ammo. Stick with good US made brass cased ammo, however South African battle pack and Israeli Military Industries ammo (M855 from Hansen, Q3131a 55 gr fmj from Winchester) are both good, too.

I have had good dealings with CMMG, including the SA-80 steel mags, and other products.
I have about 1000 rnds of Hansen/IMI boxed M855, clearly marked as to date of mfg by Israeli Military Industries. I don't know if Hansen is handling it now or not. Haven't seen any of their ammo for a few years now.
