i have an armorers wrench, set of no/no-go's and a coulple other trinkets. i'm know the list of punches and various items to build uppers and lowers isn' that long, so i was hoping some of you could give me a list of the things i'll need. i looked through brownells but only saw large sets of punches, etc.

i was wondering if there is an "AR" kit? and if so, are there any things i should add that experience has taught you i may need?

any suggestions are welcome?

thanks,

s.tank

What M4Madness has listed will get you a real good kit. And from there you can add little things that might either be nicer or faster to use. The Dasco punches are nice for the price and they can be had at most big box stores.
The only thing I would change would be the action block. I like the DPMS Claw But, the choice is yours.
