I have all my parts together finally for my first lower build. I realize you dont have to have punches but I would like to have the right tools around anyway. What sizes and types of punches do I need to put a RRA stripped lower, RRA lpk, A2 stock , and NM trigger together. Are there any other tools I would need other than basic hand tools. I have an AR combo wrench already.

I bought the roll pin, and flat taper punches from sears - and they are a good set at about $19.95 each.

Lifetime warranty and they include all the necessary sizes.

Might consider a brass punch set or even small (4 and 8 oz.) brass hammers to aid.

You only need 4 punches for a COMPLETE AR-15 build:

1/16" pin punch
3/32" pin punch

3/32" roll pin punch
1/8" roll pin punch

Thanks guys. I was planning on a trip to sears since it is only 5 mins from the house. I just needed the right sizes.
