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

I'm wondering what brand of components you put in the lower? Get some of the'll love it. From what I've read the only thing I'd do different is the barrel. With the chrome you'll lose some of the accuarcy. If you're not shooting competition it's not a big factor.
DPMS makes a real nice trigger kit. This seems to be one area that I've noticed folks like to fiddle with. There are a lot of variations on the AR trigger and some can get rather expensive, difficult to set-up and maintain. Just some food for thought. Happy Shootin'!

If anyone is considering Hesse.....just email me and I'll give you my address. You'll get the same results, nothing for your money.

Topcat, you need to post in the Want To Buy area if you're looking to buy something. I'll leave this here for more to see. What a nice guy I am......RIGHT!!!!
