GUN DEAL Palmetto State Armory Premium Classic Lower Parts Kit (LPK) & Stripped Lower $119.98 w/ FS
Palmetto State Armory has their "Premium Classic Lower Build Kit" and on sale for $79.99 with free shipping as part of their AR-15 Days of Christmas. You can also pair it with an ATI Omni Stripped POLYMER lower they have for $39.99 shipped. You must have the lower sent to your FFL!
If you are building a "nice" AR i would recommend a forged or billet lower vs this polymer lower.
These parts would be for your basic budget build.
And a rail, forend grip, optic, flip up sights, tacticool light, etc
Yeah, you can add all the googies. My go to one still has nothing hanging off of it. Had a DD 12.x" Omega Rail and replaced it with a MOE Carbine length handguard. I still have a heavy beater but grab the lightweight if I'm going to hump it through the woods for a few miles.
Mag out!!! Covering fire!!!!

3rd time I've seen this LPK posted since last night. I guess it makes it a new deal if you add a lower
The only thing that makes this a "deal" is the free shipping. The omni has been $40 pretty consistently (what I paid for mine) and the LPK had been this price fairly regularly. If you are still determining what you want/use of the gun, I wouldn't recommend buying as I don't consider this a crazy hot deal. Also the polymer lower will be just fine for the majority of users.
Why exactly is that? Seems to work well for Glock, Springfield, Ruger, Smith & Wesson...I don't have an AR but would not hesitate to build one on a polymer lower. There's advantages and disadvantages of both.
Ive seen the plum crazy and NFA polymer lowers (maybe these omni's too) allow enough "warpage" to sometimes allow the safety to be engaged without the hammer being cocked. This is a bad thing, IMO, as it locks the hammer forward, since the trigger can no longer move out of its way to allow the hammer to be cocked.
If the sear can't fall (safety on), the hammer cannot be re-cocked. The plastic lowers can get around this sometimes because the lower might flex enough to allow it to cock. Can't be good for the trigger group.
The fact that the safety won't engage tells you EXACTLY what's up (hammer isn't cocked).
