Do a search for cbass and send him a PM. Oldturle could help you as well. Another place to look is for a video on youtube.

Setting your sights pretty low I think. AR rifles are very reliable and pretty easy to work on. You can also check out videow by Brownells. I have used them from time to time. Are you trying to put together a varmint rig? How close are most of your shots? What is the country like where you want to hunt? Do you primarily road hunt or are you doing a lot of walking and climbing fences when you hunt? Answer some of these questions and we can try to make some suggestions.

Lots of stuff out there to choose from. Also lots of stuff to read about them. Rock River Arms makes some great rifles and the guys that have them love them. I have a Predator Pursuit on order right now.
Try using this search engine to look around a bit on the forum.

I do know sometimes it is just easier to ask the specific question that you have.

Get an R-15 with a 3x9 scope.
It goes bang, and is pretty much designed for predator hunting.
End of story.

I don't think you should just limit yourself to a R-15. I'm not saying that there is anything wrong with one but there are a lot of different choices you have. Don't just buy the gun cause it has a cool looking camo, for the money I think you could have something better.
Just my opinion blink

I'd get like a oly arms k 16. Only about 650 total, and you would have the free float hand guard and bull barell

Do any of the uppers fit any of the the lowers and do you just get a but load of parts to put together is there any machineing to do after you get the uppers and lower. Are these the only thing you need. What i gather the lower is the only part that needs FFL. all new to this
