Have never put together an AR15 and would like some help. Only thing I think might give me some trouble is barrel head spacing and a directional muzzle brake, getting it all lined up correctly. LaRue kits, will probably be six months or so before they are here. Four lowers and two uppers, other two uppers are assembled.

I wouldn't worry much about headspace issues, if you have quality components that's almost never a problem.

School Of The American Rifle

Its a guy who goes to the Nth degree on specs/tolerances. Way farther than necessary for end users. He's become kind of a meme now.

Built my first about 4 years ago, not even close to being an expert, but glad to help if I can. I am in the south metro area but have hunting property near Ft Valley and go down at least once a month.

First, you will make mistakes, I made many at least twice. Get good tools, they can make a world of difference - like Knipex pliers. Glad to help  or loan tools if needed, but see that others more experienced than I have offered to help.
