Re: Asking for AR-15 build advice
gd, the Colt upper will be something that will be highly sought after by AR builders. You may just want to try and sell it as is without mating it to a lower. There's a big market for people buying components like that.
Mating it to a Bushmaster lower will not enhance the value any as Bushmasters are not very highly regarded anymore in the AR community. If you are insterested in a good lower, go with something like a Armalite, Stag or Spike's Tactical. I built an AR recently with an Armalite lower using Rock River Arms internal parts and a complete Rock River upper. The quality of the Armalite lower was excellent and was available locally at the gunstore for $130 out the door. An Armalite lower on a Colt upper would be something that would not hurt the value any.
It' just my opinion, but you will not get any more out of your Colt upper by having it attached to a non-Colt lower. It will be worth as much or more just as it is.
Fear is a reaction..........Courage is a decision
