I want to build an AR, wondering what you guys would recommend for a lower and upper. Don't want to break the bank so looking for something for a good price and quality. I know you get what you pay fore. Thanks for any help.

Inexpensive but quality, I'd recommend Palmetto State Armory (PSA) for both halves in stripped if your wanting to build.

Aero Precision and Anderson are also good "budget" lowers and uppers.

LPKs from PSA or CMMG.

I have a matched set, upper and lower, from Aero Precision that I am in the process builing upon. Real nice quality that I paid $115 for the set a year or so ago on sale. I'd put them above budget status. Anderson indeed are cheaper, but have been known to have issues on occasion.

Got my LPK from Tom's Tactical. Small parts and other miscellaneous from JSE Surplus and Rousch Sports

Take a look at the Aero Percision Gen 2 lowers. They have a tension screw to tighten any wobble between the upper and lowe.

Also, the Gen 1s are on sale at quiet a few places.

Ill put another vote in for Aero Precision. Picked up one of there gen2 lowers late last year along with there stripped upper. Fit together really well and the quality of the parts seems really good. I compared the Aero lower to my Bushmaster and it made the Bushmaster look like a factory second.

Check out Spikes Tactical's web sight. I'm in process of putting one together using their upper/lower that I picked up. Been a slow build since I'm retired and have to save a long time to buy parts

Darryl that Spikes looks very nice. Had a gun show this past weak end picked up an Aero Lower at a good price. A lot of the dealers were out of the lower priced lowers. Let the building begin. thumbup

Spikes is good stuff. Their billet receivers are second to no one, imho. I've also used their forged receivers and there's nothing wrong with them either. I haven't had a problem with any of their products...
