AR-15 Build

I placed an order with DSA for an upper and parts. Since I ordered 3 cases of ammo and they are local to me I ordered the rest most of my build parts from there. The only snag is the lower has a 2 week wait time right now. This isn't a "Build" per say, but for the prices on complete upper and lower are so good that you couldn't build them for much cheaper. So that gives me time to make the changes to the upper and get the rest of my parts in. Here is the parts list for the DSA:

DSA ZM4 A3 Upper - M4 config 1/7 chrome lined
ZM4 Semi-Auto BCG
DSZ Lower
Hogue Pistol Grip
Badger Tac Latch
LaRue LT-707-1 Flashligh Mount
LaRue LT110 EOTech QD Mount
LaRue 1.25 Sling Swivel
MI SS15 Handguard
MI Trim Ring
MI Low Profile Gas Block
Bushmaster YHM Mini Comp - Yes it's loud, but it works well / YHM Phantom - I can't decide which one I like better......
Tango Down Vertical Grip
EOTech XPS 2
Magpul UBR
Magpul PMags
Surefire G2 with Tape Switch
GG&G EOTech Lens Covers
GG&G MOUT Sling
Magpul Enhanced Trigger Guard
Pro Mag Flip-Up Sights

I found a good deal on a complete lower and decided to use it until my other lowers are finished - I am having 2 made with custom engaving.

It started like this:


And Is now like this waiting on the rest of the parts:

That sure is a who's who of parts.

I love the long handguard. I want to do that with my next upper, assuming I can find a 20-24" barrel I really like.

It is a long list of who's who, but I did shop around for the best prices I could find. I knew what I wanted going in, and stuck to it. The funny part is that all the accessories cost more that the complete rifle. I was able to build the rifle itself for about $600.00.

Good job on the dust cover for the bolt. A lot of builders opt to not get the upper with a provision for it. I stay tossed up between the Pistol GZrip and the Reaper Grip. Both of my AR's have one of each
