What else do I need besides optics?
Am I ready to go shooting?

the upper is 7.62x 39,i'm assuming you knew that,the lower is fibermaterial,not aluminum,personally i'm not doing the fibermaterial yet,i'd like to hear from others about that myself,the upper in that caliber would mean you could use the same ammo for both rifles(your new AR and old SKS)

on the fiber material from plum crazy,they compare to a Glock,i don't think so.

keep digging .... ISD beat you with the Buds Gun shop AR,that one is complete,bugs have been minimized as far as fit and finish

Yes on 7.62, the lower was just for example (though I may get one just to tear apart and re-assemble) I still want to do a complete build so I can know the weapon.
The build doesn't have to be less expensive. I'm still looking, pricing and trying to learn.

In addition to the two products you listed, you would need a Bolt Carrier Group (or assemble one yourself) and a charging handle, then yes, optics and any additional accessories that you need. Some upper receiver groups include BCG's and charging handles and some don't. I didn't see them included with that bushy upper.

Vaq.....

I'am also currently working on an AR. I'am using the Plum Crazy lower, my brother in-law has one and he hasn't had any problems so far. It actually has a real nice trigger for a stock AR. I'am building mine for matches so I'am trying to keep it as lite as I can. I will also be using a lite weight pencil barrel.

Laser Designator to go with the scope...
