    This is pretty straight forward.

    I'll strongly suggest that you have all your necessary tools first.

    How about a stainless fluted barrel? Would that meet her criteria?

    stop
    the barrel is what is chambered in 5.56/.223 not the upper
    did you buy an upper or a barrel, or a prefab upper

    next buffer/stock kit is great but a Lower build kit usually includes one, did you buy a lower parts kit or a lower build kit

    guess what i am asking is what have you bought so far

    I havent bought any upper / barrel as of now . I just ordered the lower receiver and LPK. I am looking now for a buffer and stock kit and was wondering if the PSA one i posted was worthed the money. I will need to know if there is any upper that HAS already a barrel that accomodates 5.56/.223

    ok, now i understand

    i like my PSA components - typicly i run blemished uppers because i do not see paying 100+ on a component no better then 1 i can get for 40$, what parts MUST be different for your wife to be satisfied

    She really just want to have some thing that look unique i was thinking of a good tac optics may be a foward assist. For sure a fluted barrel is ideal and a cool mean muzzle break is also enlist

    i am a big fan of building it yourself when it comes to the upper
    regarding the barrel i bought my wife one of these when they were in stock
    http://www.scottstactical.com/index.php/18-stainless-spiral-flute-barrel.html
    her upper is a PSA blemished

    upper parts kit (did not use the barrel nut because YHM uses proprietary it in my extra parts bin)

    has a low profile steel gas block and went to a LGS for her to pick out her muzzle break
