Default Building AR's in Canada sucks!

I'm shopping around to build my first AR up here in the great white north and man, are we ever limited as to what we can get for parts.. The selection is pathetic compared to what you guys can get. Prices are about double as well. Sure be nice to be able to support the US economy and buy stuff there but with the current government crap I don't think I'll ever see it happen. (Be nice to have them off the restricted list as well) At any rate, what type of suggestions do you guys have in looking for components? So far I'm looking at:

Stag arms lower (not a huge fan of the logo but they are available for way to much! $195.00)
Aero upper (just uder $200) or maybe a Vltor ($300 stripped)
Daniel defense LPK
Daniel defense bolt carrier

Have not really made much of a decision on barrel and the like yet,

Still looking around for the other stuff. Any suggestions are welcome. It's tough to get alot of this stuff as well. Tons of "out of stock". Sure be nice to get some LaRue but there is no Canadian dealer......

Didn't know you could own such a thing in Canada.

Those prices are crazy. Although I am not a huge fan of Palmetto State Armory

Blemished lower $60.00 (I have bought their blemished lowers before and the blemish is barely, barely noticable - heck I just bought 3 more)

Clearance Lower Build kit - $80.00

Complete lower before shipping $140.00

Leaves you a lot of lee way to go nuts on your upper and be into a great gun at a great price.

Yes, we do have cigars, yep, we can have AR's they are just restricted so ya need a special permit to own em and there are fairly strict laws regarding there use and transport, If you know who sells Palmetto's stuff up here please let me know, I sure can't find any.. There is one company called Irunguns that imports lots of stuff that are already built but not much in the way of parts...
