What's the best way to get a para??

I've been wanting one for a while, but not really sure if I wanna buy a complete one from DSA.
What are my options?
Buy the complete lower from DSA FOR $590 & that gets me 7 compliance parts.
Then add an Imbel receiver & Imbel upper & be done with it?

Or ask one of the respected builders to build one for me, more$$

Or just wait for one to pop up on the Marketplace?

Last, I already have an SA 58 [LMT receiver],could I just buy the DSA complete para lower & slap the 2 together?
But then I would have an extra complete lower sitting around, & that would cause me to buy another receiver & upper to complete that rifle, costing me more $$ in the long run.

What do you guys recommend? Thanks, Mick.

Iím going to put a para kit or two up for auction (low starting bid) in the next couple days.

Thatís another option.

I would just swap the parts in the existing lower to a DSA stripped lower kit. Unless you think that the compliance stuff is a plus.

The nice thing about the DSAs, at least IMHO, is that they are alloy lowers and to me balance very nicely with my preferred 18" barrel length. But it is an awful pricey route to take for a relatively small difference in weight and balance.
