    AR build project

    Hi all, so a gun group I follow on Facebook has set up a reduced rate on an AR15 kit with everything included except the lower receiver, I was just wondering how realistic it is for someone with little to no experience building or repairing firearms to put one together?

  3. It is very simple to do. I am working on my first build now. I decided to put everything together piece by piece. That way you learn what is in the gun and how the parts work together. You can learn a lot by watching videos online.

    Links that are helpful for the build.

    Lowers are easier. Best bang for the book IMO is a delton rifle build kit from midwayusa or PSA palmetto has lots of build kits and upper options

  5. I just built my first AR, and it wasn't too difficult, provided that you have the proper tools. I would suggest reading from several online sources, and watch as many videos as you can. Yes, some of the tools are a little expensive, but they often can make a tough job a whole lot easier and/or prevent you from making a mess of your nice new upper or lower.

  6. Make sure you get a clamp style upper vise hold tool instead of the type that just uses the pivot and take down pin holes to hold the upper in a vise. Also invest in a good set of punches that has started punches for roll pins. I had a heck of a time driving my forward assist pin in using the upper vise bar and a regular punch. I had to add a little touchup paint to cover up some of the scratches. Next time, I will have a starter punch and a clam shell type vise tool.

  7. Very easy to build but as others have said get the right tools, do your research (You Tube) and take your time.
