possible retro build AR question

I can get a M16A1 parts kit from Sportsmans guide for about 450, there was a post about a Spikes tactical lower for 80, a light bbl can be had.

The questions are:

M16A1 upper and a commercial AR lower? Yes? No?
What is the procedure for mounting the bbl to a stripped upper? I understand that I will need go/no go's, but it doesnt look all that hard to mount one.

Kind of a wild hair thought. Someone got the wifes MAC card # so my extra $$ went bye bye. Didnt get me for much, but basically I'm porked out of a little spare that I had. The paper trail is different so odds are good that I will never see the cash again. FYI, just like I told her, a debit card DOES NOT have the same protection as a credit card, so DON'T USE IT LIKE A CREDIT CARD.

Anyway, I am hoping that it snows a lot this year and I can re supply the black ops fund.
It's boring, and your lack of creativity knows no bounds.

    Got a link? I have an extra stripped lower laying around and that sounds like the perfect use for it.
