Rock River is hard to beat. They have built great rifles for a long time.
Windham Is a great place. They are the old Bushmaster company.
They sell rifles at a fair price and easy to deal with.

Good luck with the DPMS. If you do anything, besides mounting an optic, the trigger is the place to start.

Due to price, from the very beginning I built my own. Have over a dozen AR's in all different calibers and configs now, and built and sold dozens of others. The only "complete" AR in my collection is the Colt I inherited when my father passed. It's a thing of beauty and the gun that started the craze for me. It sits in the corner of the safe now.

I say build your own. It's a learning experience and it's not hard. At all. Required tools are minimal. All the specialized tools just make it a bit easier. I'm fairly confident I could put together an AR with an armorer's wrench, a hammer, and 3 punches.

When you've built, handled, and sold as many AR's as I have, you'll see that most of the parts are the same. Yes, spend money on a good barrel and BCG, but these people that get all wrapped around the axle on what logo is on the side of their lower are crazy.

You are absolutely correct. All the "specialty" tools just makes things easier.

Lol, I've put them together with none of those things, well maybe a hammer was involved when my buddies package showed up and it needed to be built that second, but pretty much a leatherman will get it done well enough to shoot.

I would for sure build my own, and I would go with Aero Precision M4E1 parts because they are even easier to work on than mil spec and I believe they are about as perfect as AR15 receivers could be engeneered compared to mil spec.

I received my new DPMS Prairie Panther 223 and I like it. I have not been able to shoot it yet but as Muskrat30 warned the trigger seems awful heavy to me. I might want to change to maybe a Black Rain Ordnance ??. I could use some more thoughts ... are a used set of Black Rain a possibility ? tks Dennis

Before you invest in a new trigger give these a try, https://www.joeboboutfitters.com/JP-Enterprises-AR-15-RELIABILITY-ENHANCED-REDUCED-p/jp-jps3.5t.htm
