Palmetto State Armory usually has decent deals on uppers/kits. (fair warning, I have posted in the past about issues with PSA, but they still offer a good bang for the buck). http://www.defensivecarry.com/forum/defensive-rifles-shotgun-discussion/224491-not-sure-how-much-longer-i-can-recommend-psa-kits.html

I have seen deals on Radical Firearms kits, but know nothing about them, aside from they are on the low end of the price range.

If you want a brace, I would highly recommend a Shockwave brace with the dimpled tube made for them, vs. the Sig brace. A lot less weight & bulk.

Building it yourself, can be a lot of fun. I built mine. Not a pistol. What barrel length are you thinking of and twist ratio? What kind of BCG are you looking to put in there? Other than the rail or forend, upper and lower, trigger kit/pins, buffer tube/spring/cover, sights, Gas block and tube, dust cover/fwd assist, muzzle break, charging handl, that's it. You can get all of that from Ebay, Midway, Daniel Defense. Approx. $600.00. But if you peace meal it, it won't seem like that much.
