Like everyone stated here its not difficult at all. I was kind of scared about it as well and always purchased complete uppers up until last year.
From experience you will save money buying a completed upper however once you start to mod you eventually change out and upper and spend just as much.
I prefer to build mine now as I get everything on my upper I want from the start. Im the rifle length handgaurd guy on a 14.5" barrel type of guy
Its actually easier to me to put an upper together just make sure you have a good vice
, Lube wrench and torque wrench and a set of go no go gauges which some say you can get by without but id rather know then not know.
This is the hard part. Recommendations on a vice that won't break the bank?
Haven't gotten around to going to pawn shops to find a good one for less.
Debating if one of these can get the job done:
Drill press vise
