Default Build an upper or buy?

I can assemble one, no problem. I have the tools.

But, will I be missing something by not purchasing from WOA , Keystone, etc.

By the time I assemble the upper with the Geissele quad rail, gas block and tube, upper and parts kit, bolt carrier, barrel, Iíll be at $750.

I can buy similar st keystone for the same thing, just a different rail.

Whatís the word?

If price is the same and it's in stock, buy it. If you have to wait much longer than what parts shipping would be, then assemble it.

The price wonít exactly be the same. Iíll be spending a couple hundred extra right now if I buy, to get the Giessele rail. I could put that toward upgrading my lower. Right now it sports an A2 stock and RRA trigger.

I have another question that Iíll ask separately that may help me decide.
Thanks for your help.

When I have built my ARs I made certain to purchase all the parts during black friday sales. The Giessele rails and triggers always get a considerable discount.
