    Well I just purchased my first parts for an AR build. I bought a palmetto state armory stripped lower and parts kit. Normally I would do more research before buying but it was a deal I couldn't pass up. So when it comes in I'll post pics of what I got and me starting to assemble it. I am open to any suggestions because I will be very new to this and learning as I go.
    Can't wait to get started!

    I'll do my best! I'm sure the lessons learned will be the largest part of this thread for me

    Thanks BD. If she doesn't mind the blemished ones then it's a tough deal to beat. For $100 you get the lower and parts kit
