I plan on purchasing some tools so I can assemble my own AR15's.

I have a bushmaster catalogue and noticed they have some armorer tool kits.

Which one would I need? There are several options.

I have always used tools that I had around the house, saved the money and put in to another build.

I did buy a barrel block to but barrels on with

my 2 cents

i thought about the kit they offer but didnt get it.


all i got was a punch set, upper action block, moly grease, and front detent tool. i got the combo wrench from dpms.


along with household tools so far that is all i have needed to build my uppers.

What are you using to hold the upper? I figure I just need that and a barrel wrench....

Actually I just remembered my grandfather has a workbench/vice. Basically its a table that splits in half and clamps back together like a vice.  But its wood. So I could use that you hold the upper while I install the barrel.

sounds like it should work.



i once used some c-clamps and clamp the action block to the picnic table we have out back and that worked.

I bought a set of roll pin punches from Brownells. They have paid for themselves many times over.

What are you using to tighten the barrel nut?
