I'm looking into start building my first AR EVER! I never built anything before so this will be a challenge for me.

I dont know where to start and I figured this forum is full of very experienced firearms experts. I need a complete and detailed list of parts to start slowly buying them. I've searched many places but ended up with negative results, this will be fun to do and at the same time, I'm planning on sharing my progress as I go along.

Thanks guys!

Oh, boy, how detailed of a list do you need?

Are you building from the ground-up, or from mostly preassembled parts?
I saw some lowers already assembled. The reason I need the parts names is so I can shop around and get the better deals. I also want to get it 2 toned. The lowers I saw that are assembled, didnt like the colors.

I've looked everywhere before posting. Came accross some good info, but the language used threw me off, as I dont know the name of the parts and stuff. :(

By the way, not too detailed. Simple.

Ex: How To Make A Cheese Burger

1. Buns
2. Hamburger Meat
3. Cheesd
4. Ketchup

Like that. I just showed u how to make a cheeseburger now u can use any name brand of cheese, buns etc to make it.

Sorry, you posted about the hamburgers while I was typing....

That should be a complete list of parts, unless I missed something (just going from memory here).

If you get a fully asssmbled BCG, then you do not need to worry about all the little parts.

Same with a fully assembled upper receiver.

Lowers are fun to assemble, should only take about 30 minutes or so if you take your time and watch TV while doing it.

Cheers!

Another thing, Apopka Fl is 5 mins from my house. Can I go and pick up the receiver there or does it still have to to to FFL?

If you are buying it from a licensed firearms dealer, it will need a NICS check.

If you are buying it from across state lines, it will need a NICS check.

If you are buying from an individual, you need to check the laws there. Over here (Nevada) no NICS check is done for private sales.
