I have never owned an AR and have never built one. I have fired my brothers once. I have never taken one down. I dont know the first thing about one other than I want one. I have been looking at them online for quite some time. I was going to purchase a complete rifle, but now am leaning to building my own from scratch. Where can I find the dummies guide to do this and a complete parts list. I want to build the entire thing from parts. Everything. Thanks for the help guys.
your in the right place...
Start with the sticky right above the posts:
Well this sght is a good place to start.
I just completed my 4th rifle so it's not all that hard(except gathering the parts.
Look at the tacked build it yourself section for a list of parts and instruction/books on the ar(this is what I did).
With all the options out there deciding what you want is the hardest part.
The general parts list
stripped lower(must buy threw a dealer the rest can be ordered over the net from the advertiser on this sight)
lower parts kit
upper parts kit
butt stock kit
ar gunblocks for vise
hammer and punches
anti gall grease
patience and time
head space gauges to do final chamber check(go nogo and field gauges)
