    Just depends on what you want to do and feel comfortable with building.

    Stripped is the way to insure every part you want is in it from the get go without wasting $(parts you would remove and replace later from a complete lower).

    I love the shit out of my .22lr upper.

    One thing to consider with this though @Teppodama is the difference between a dedicated .22lr upper and a conversion kit (which is swapping out the bolt carrier group and magazine). .22lr is a dirty round and it's probably not best for a gun with a gas tube. The dedicated upper shouldn't have that. I don't know it's the biggest concern, but it makes sense to me. Plus, you'll get the correct barrel twist (1/16 vs. 1/7 or so). Here's what I bought and love it. You could easily get a full lower for $150 or so (I'm pretty sure).

    Here it is for $499 in stock, though I still wouldn't recommend it.



    Here is imo pretty great option instead of building.

    $169

    With this set up it is $20 over budget but this would be a very nice shooting set up imo. Mid length gas, quality light trigger with anti walk pins and nice muzzle device. Shoot this for a while with irons and you can add a red dot or 1-4x or 1-6x scope in the future.

    If it is over gassed you can buy an H or H2 buffer for like $20 to smooth it out further.

    PSA is having a heckuva sale this weekend on a Ruger pistol, AR15 lower and AR10 lower . . . like $299 for all three I think.

    Between PSA, Primary Arms and CDNN you should have some pretty good options.

    I’m a fan of the Mech Techs. I would need a pre ban Glock though.

    Been also considering the newer Ruger PCC since they now take Glock mags.

    Yeah....everyone is asking for them to come out with a 10mm. The boltface on these are made to be swapped. I foresee caliber swaps in the future should these do well

    I have a mec tech in 45acp for my 1911. I have a scope on it now, but come to think of it I should put a cheap red dot sight on it, add a few 10+ round mags and use it at run n gun matches.

    I find you need to hold it to get accuracy beyond 50 yards cause the friction from the big slow 45 slug tries to torque the contraption in you hands, and its got a big clunky bolt.

    Other than that its alright.

    Carbines are so much easier than pistols, (once you gett'em out)

    That goon had sights going and coming on that thing.
