this is an old thread but its been so long since the first entry in 2008..time flies! Nowadays, there are so many good resources for DIY builds.  Im focusing on building an AR15 9mm pistol build using glock mags.
a lot cheaper than shooting 556x45/223 rounds

Never too late to start! I forgot about a stripped lower I had and found it a while back. I don't have plans for it yet but I have thought about building a pistol caliber rifle when I do get around to it.

I've been collecting parts since November for a 308 build. I just ordered a matched stripped upper and lower from 2A Arms. I already have a 2A Arms 18 inch match grade barrel, DPMS lower parts kit, Timney skeletonized 4lb. trigger, buffer kit (buffer, tube and spring), charging handle, hogue grip, Odin Works 15 inch free float handguard and barrel nut and an Odin Works adjustable gas block. As soon as the upper and lower come in I'm getting them and the handguard & buffer tube cerakoted in burnt bronze. I'm going to order a bolt carrier group in a couple weeks.

Got my parts back on Saturday and pretty much finished the build (sans a bolt carrier group and sights):
