trying to rebuild this AR15

I saw this AR15 awhile ago in a gun shop but then has been sold. All I know it was an Olympic Arms lower (unknown if same upper) Magpul Stock. Price tag said $650. Im trying to be rebuild this rifle. Could anyone recognize the sights or anything such as the upper or rail system

There is really no way of telling. Most uppers are not marked or stamped. Is there anything stamped on the barrel?

barrel is M4 profile, carbine-length gas system

magpul stock

it was a short range scope. the sights could switch from red to green or standard.

Pretty low end build - the handguard is a 2-piece UTG drop in, which means no free-float. I'd rather have a Magpul MOE handguard if not free-floating. The upper has a riser on it, which is not ideal, with maybe a leapers 1-4x on it? Something cheap. The MOE buttstock is good for cheap, and the vertical forend grip looks like a Magpul. The grip looks like a standard A2. I wouldn't pay $650 for it.

+1
Especially knowing the price, it's just loaded up with UTG Airsoft junk.
Heavy junk.

Spend $1200+ and build yourself a nice feeling and performing rifle, that will also look cool.
