Hello all, I just found this great site in my quest to build my own ar-15 from scratch. I am going to buy a leo dpms lower and the m4 kit from J&T. I was wondering exactly what tools i will need to have ready when it all gets here. Please keep in mind that i have never built a gun before( but i am mechanicly inclined) and probably do not have anything. Who has the best prices or maby an entire tool kit is available. Thanks alot

I just put together my first lower (minus buttstock) in 30-45 minutes using a hammer, duct tape, and a 3/16" allen wrench (for the pistol grip). Very easy. I just followed the directions on this site.
