Ahh,...not to be picky but their will be someone there who knows wtf they're doing?
And has the proper tools? Including a vise and the vise-blocks that hold the recievers?
Okay so I'm picky, after all I can bend roll-pins in the privacy of my own home with the best of them and I
don't have to burn any gas to do it.

I'd be willing to participate. I'll also offer to host a build party if anyone is interested in traveling to Morris County NJ.

I do have the tools, blocks and a big vice.

For the guys that are interested please let me know if you would be willing to host.

Let me know what tools you have.

I have on order an upper action vise with the internal receiver part , both types of car wrenches,
armorers wrench. They should be received this week.

Also what weekend / evening would be good.

Has anyone does this before and would like to take lead for the build.

Thanks

Lloyd, even we experienced guys with the proper tools and knowledge have had our @#&%$*&#*%@$ moments.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to criticize the idea, we talked about it a bit at the BBQ shoot,
it just doesn't make much sense to throw 10 or 15 'monkeys' in one room with a bunch of parts
and expect that they will walk out of there with complete rifles after a few hours. Unless at least
one guy knows what he's doing and can teach the others. I was reading the book, " The AR-15
Complete Assembly Guide" by Walt Kuleck with Clint McKee (AR-15 Guide, Vol. 2), and it seems
pretty straight forward but nescessary to have all the correct tools, which I don't have. Nor do I
think that just because I read the book that I can lead a bunch of guys. I think I could do the
assembly myself with the proper tools but it might take me a couple of days. One thing I've
found is you never work on small parts if you're tired or frustrated with the work. We are talking
about 50,000 psi just in front of your one and only set of God given eyes right?
I have put in a Jewell trigger myself and I let it take me an hour plus, just because I got up and
walked away from it when I was getting pissed off at it. I've seen guys who really know this rifle
do it in six or eight minutes, between relays, at a highpower match. I'll come to the build party,
if only just to watch if I don't have the parts yet for the spare receiver I bought in the group buy.

Hey did you fix your truck yet? We missed your 1/2 inch artillery at the BBQ.

That is exactly what I meant by those @#&%$*&#*%@$ moments, especially with the eyes not being as good in my younger days. I have a little more patience but stubborn determination (not knowing when to stop and walk away) is my achilles heel.

I missed shooting it too! I had a 150rds of .50BMG ready to bring with me. I was also going to bring my .458 SOCOM to compare it with Helldog's Beowolf. I spent a couple of days getting the rifles and ammo ready so it was a real letdown. My truck was in the shop having the brakes replaced. Even if it was available, it would not be a wise choice because it has commercial plates and it would take me 4.5 instead of 2.5 hours to get there. It was my van that developed trouble on Friday night while I was stuck in an hour backup in town due to an accident. I originally thought that it might be the front bearings but it is the transmission.

BTW, that is a really nice upper!
