Oh, well in that case, give FN Herstal a call and see if they're finally selling rifles to civilians.
Seriously though, if it's a rifle you want to use and abuse, in competitions and training courses and whatnot, you're going to have to tailor it a little differently than you would a casual plinker. For the lower, most lower parts kits would do (I linked several in my original response to you), so I'll just deal with uppers in this post.
I highly recommend an LMT 14.5" upper (here); I'd recommend a Bravo Company upper, but they're perpetually out of stock. Anyway, this will give you the same M4 upper you're familiar with. Find a set of handguards you like (the standard plastic heat shields or rails) and a Bravo Company auto (M16) bolt carrier group since neither of those uppers come with one. Add the rear sight/optic of your choice and rock on. This is right about at that point of diminishing returns, and anything better you'd have to really start shelling out cash for.
Just ordered my CMMG stripped lower for the same reason. Had fun putting in the internals (first build). Now I need to research all the upper features I need (want!).
i finally ordered and received it today...a 20'' varmint chromed barrel kit...
waiting on my stag arms lower...
from what I can tell model1sales put out a good upper....can't wait to get the rifle together and see what it can do.

If you guys need a barrel wrench CDNN investments has them for 19.95,shipping is 14.95 for 1 or 1000 parts shipped so what I usually do is order a lot of parts at once like magazines and other stuff

wow, scurrying around and snapping up gun parts like squirrels hoarding nuts before the snow, I am and you are too. It is sad.
The lower just allows you to buy "parts kits" to build and configure you an AR from the ground up to your liking.
If you're gonna hoard my friend, hoard hi-cap mags, flash hiders, folding and collapsable stocks. If you don't USE them you can sell them for a profit when or if the gun ban hits us yet again...
