Building an AR-15 from scratch is a pretty cool thing to do. You get to decide which parts get to be a part of your weapon and you are really creating something from nothing. Then, at the end of it all, you get to use your weapon for a variety of purposes: hunting, recreational shooting, and self-defense.
Recently, Salient Arms released a brand new AR-15 Stripped Upper and Lower Receiver Set. This is sort of different, because normally gun sellers offer upper and lower receivers separately. However, for people who have built their own AR-15s before, this might make sense. Salient Arms released this Stripped Upper and Lower Receiver Set for quality assurance purposes. This product ensures that upper and lower receivers will fit appropriately on a built-from-scratch AR-15. Otherwise, it can be tough to match up upper and lower receivers. There are all kinds of issues, like gaps and rattles, which are unfortunate to have on any firearm.
