OK, so I am trying to build this AR-15 in 6.5 Grendel. I got most of the major stuff already. Looking for a free float rail, stock, and buffer kit. In looking at most of the stores online, they seem a bit expensive to buy individually. Why can I buy a complete lower receiver with stock for only a few bucks more than the stripped lower, but I can’t find a stock for less than $100? That doesn’t make any sense. Same with the upper. I am seeing completed uppers for not much more than a barrel and yet I can’t find a free float rail for less than $50. So what gives? Where can I find a decent stock and free float rail? I want it to be decent, but I get the feeling it should be less than what I am seeing. Or am I missing something?
Also, I need recommendations on the buffer kit. Just don’t know what kind to get.
