This is my first of many posts here on the forums. I'd like to illicit a little help from the knowledgeable members of THR. I'm hoping that i can build my own ar15. Below is a partial parts list of what i'm hoping to build, please critique where you see fit.

Lower assembly:
Larue Tactical Stealth stripped lower
DD lower parts kit
Geisselle 2 stage service trigger
CTR stock w/ milspec extension kit

DD lower parts kit
Giessel Super 3 gun trigger
Magpul ACSstock w/ milspec extension kit
Magpul MOE grip

Upper Assembly:

Upper reciever: Noveske-Stag-Rainier Arms
kreiger 10" barrel That's going to be NFA
DD Ris II
BCM gunfighter charging handle I like the largest handle one
BCM bolt assembly
kac flash hider
mk 12 gas block assembly meh, just use a longer rail and mount your sight onto the rail instead with a Larue or DD low pro gas block

Thanks everyone

The Laure billet Stealth Upper and Lower are very, very nice. But the added cost of billet deosn't affect perfomance IME. Just stick with plain old forged recievers. No need for anything super fancy.

If you want ambi controls from a billet reciever then that's fine. But I prefer regular recievers and a Stag ambi safety and Magpul BAD lever, instead of fancy billet ambi lowers.

I think this upper may have what your looking for:

Given a very old school, frugal, viewpoint hammered by marketing hype over 30 years and 22 years experience as a Reservist Infantry/MP:

Lower assembly:
Larue Tactical Stealth stripped lower - Actually, most lowers are a commodity to be chosen on what rollmark you want to pay a premium on.
DD lower parts kit - quality roll pins are important
Geisselle 2 stage service trigger - despite howls of protest, most target triggers don't noticeably improve accuracy unless the barrel, sights, and shooter are also 1/2MOA capable.
CTR stock w/ milspec extension kit - inexpensive, but no real improvement over issue except in style
Magpul MOE grip - the ultimate in adjustability - but grips on rifles don't offer accuracy increases the way they do on pistols. It's simply a comfort issue, buy one the correct size, done.

Upper Assembly:

Larue Stealth Upper - no doubt it's quality
kreiger 10" barrel - Cross purposes here - Kreiger is Long Range precision, 10" is short CQB blasting
DD Ris II - on a 10"? No point, you need it all just to grip, no room to mount lasers, night vision, etc.
BCM gunfighter charging handle - Implying you need to charge the upper frequently at combat speeds. So, why don't your mags hold enough and work properly, and the bolt hold open work?
BCM bolt assembly - nothing wrong with quality
kac flash hider - expensive, not a brake, no apparent advantage other than mounting an expensive suppressor.
mk 12 gas block assembly - plenty elsewhere for half the price.

To regain a significant loss in performance due to the inadequate barrel length, consider an alternate caliber.

If this is meant as a gunshow table display piece or gameboy range gun, it succeeds. As a functional firearm useful in combat, it only fills the limited niche as a PDW - and Glocks with 30 round mags are alternately competitive.
