    Relatively new to the AR platform and wanted one in 7.62x39, I have tons of that ammo. Found a super deal on a complete AR lower and complete upper so ordered them. A few days ago something about the upper was nagging me in the back of my mind, looked at the order receipt in my email and realized I had purchased a 10.5" upper..........
    I have no desire to own an AR pistol and am not interested in jumping through hoops to get it approved as a SBR. I'm returning the upper and have already ordered a 16" upper.
    Gotta be careful with these "builds" so as not to inadvertently build an illegal firearm because one doesn't know any better.

    It always helps to read the "fine print", doesn't it? ;)

    If I had the money, that would been the excuse to order a pistol lower and a rifle upper.

    I bought mine from Bear Creek Arsenal in NC. The lower cost me $150 and the 16" upper $250. Palmetto State Arsenal has complete lowers for $140 but their uppers run around $300.

    Sorry, pistol lowers are around $190.

    I guess that is why no normal vendors sell 15” (total pinned and welded) length uppers…..

    You could go custom though.:what:
