How difficult is it to do a good job putting together an upper? I want to build a custom upper but i dont want to get over my head. I was planing on having a custom upper built but since i have to upgrade over time I was wondering how difficut it would be for a newbie. If i could do it i could save some time, cash and learn something at the same time. Im pretty good with my hands and tools but i would have to buy some more tools to get it done. The big thing is that I dont want to screw something up because i wanted to save some money. Let me know what you think and what kind of tools are needed to install an upper parts right.

Nevermind on the tools issue unless there is a strater group that would be good to have. I just noticed the locked thread at the top. im an idiot.

What are you trying to build that you can't buy already? Something illegal maybe? Hmmm?

Uppers are just a little more problematic than lowers. You [blue]should[/blue] have the receiver block at a minimum to put it together with. I assume you're talking about buying a ready to install AR-15 barrel. If you can do a lower it's just one little step further to do an upper.

Yea i was thinking the same thing on the reciever block. The parts i was looking at were a barrel freefloating handguard (aluminum tube type) and a flip up sight that is part of a front block. markm: how did you even find this post i thought the search would only go back 30 days its been months. just because i want to build an upper doesnt mean its going to be illegal. i do take pride in being able to do things myself. you cant always buy what you want or what fits your specific needs.
