Complete Lower AR-15, which brand?

My GF is going t buy me a gun for Xmas. I was just going to have her buy me a complete lower, and I will buy the complete upper. That way I get the gun I want; budget is about $300. I want one that has an adjustable stock.
I was looking at the AR0901CX RRA HERE, but I dont know how much better RRA is from other brands on gunbroker.com. Can someone guide me in the right direction?

Rock River, Stag Arms, etc are all good lowers to pick from.

I know right now CMMG has a bargian bin sale going right now. You could probably buy a good lower at a good price from them also.

Well if I don't really need to spend more on a RRA lower then I wont, so I spend some on accesories.

Wow I like those prices, and being local is a plus as well. Should I be worried that LSW (Lone Star Wholesale) assembled the RRA lowers?

Are there any other options I should get on the lower? Two stage trigger???

My wife's RRA lower is from them and my sister got a DPMS.
They have great feedback on AR15.com

What is this about Wylde type lower? So it will take .223 and 5.56 bullets? How do I know which lower is what?

EDIT: Sorry I got the answer. Its the upper part I worry about.

Wylde is a chamber style, designed to be a good compromise between the 5.56 NATO chambers and the commercial .223 chambers. They're the same round, but military stuff is headspaced a little differently or something. I always heard .223 chambers were "tighter." You can buy any upper you want in any caliber you want, it'll drop right on a lower. R guns had some forged DPMS lowers for not much more than $200, and an FFL transfer fee + shipping should fit your budget. Good luck, man!

Give me a dollar.

Where is a good place to buy a complete A4 upper? I want a varmint 20" barrel, but I can hold off on that, just a standard 16" barrel.

Armalite had a sale this weekend. Complete uppers for $350. They are sold out now.
Also try Pete at Legal Transfers. He has complete RRA M4 uppers for $425.

Other than that the EE on AR15.com.
