Finally biting the bullet and putting together my first AR...Mainly an AK guy, have had a Saiga .223/5.56 NATO conversion for a while now, my only rifle in that caliber. Got an AR magwell adapter and like it a lot.
Ordered a Vulcan Arms lower, carbon composite. may change out for aluminum lower receiver later. Looking for recommendation on type of upper and for sources. M4 and CAR are what I am looking at going in. Looking for something basic, a good value (for the times, as they constantly change).
Also, most of my ammo is various Russian steel case, some zinc plated Silver Bear. I here AR's don't like at least some of it, so what ammo should I be looking at?
