    First off what kind of AR you want to build? like a carbine or rifle, M4, mid-lenght, target, CQB, so many configurations to choose from.

    Second is budget, very important in a build, will determine what kind of parts we can suggest.

    Once you figure these 2 out then we can start pointing you in the proper direction.

    settle down francis. You asked where to start and I just told you. Some people on here have no clue how to build an ar, so I was giving a generic basic answer to your question. You said you didnt know where to start. Dont ask open-ended questions. If you already know you need the above then re- phrase your question NOOB....

    Assemble your own AR15 rifle from parts.... for dummies. @ AR15.com

    Excellent thread that goes over the process step by step from parts to a completed, ready to fire rifle. The only thing you have to do is parts selection. As arjohnson implied above, parts selection is definitely the hard part. Building them is actually pretty simple with the right tools.

    Edit: What was the reason for removing neg-rep again?

    You could always check the classifieds. If you were closer you could buy my lower with installed parts kit

    Sorry, ZombieTom, Force is correct.

    There was really no need to be insulting over his response. A little humor never hurt anyone. Relax.

    Let's move along with the topic. Including more info about where you need help would be a good start.

    Yes, a little more info from the OP will yield better results in the form of answers that are actually helpful.

    If this were a boating forum, and you said "I'd like to build an boat but have no idea where to start. can anyone give me a starting point?", what sort of answers do you think you would get?

    Help us help you.
