Lol It seemed like some of that stuff was not needed. As I said in the OP I know certain tools were needed. I've watch two, what I think are well made, videos that recommend the brownell's roll pin punch/holder set.
Seems like some small nails and a standard punch set would do the same if you are careful.

Are you planning on building your upper? Because all the expensive/specific tools for mounting the barrel....well except for the castle nut wrench.

No, I plan on buying my upper. Checking the headspace looks difficult. Putting it in that special clamp, taking out the tiny parts (not loosing said parts) to check the headspace then putting it all back together. That seems the most technical and most dangerous if it isnt done properly.

If you are buying your upper.....then you don't need the upper receiver block, barrel wrench, gas tube wrench, or the torque wrench.

Most AR15 barrels come with the extension and are already headspaced, why do you think you need a headspace gauge?

Not a precision build. I'm not going hunting with it or defending my home from hoards of zombies (for some thats a real concern lol).

Just want to build one for the challange and fun. Just going to go to the range with it and have fun with buddies. I want to do this build as cheap as possible; as long as it fires with relative accuracy i'll be happy AR owner

I don't have a headspace gauge. I guess I should get one, but I don't really have any really high count rifles. I honestly think you should use that money for more ammo.

I know there are a sh¡t ton of threads about AR building. It seems like you have some experience in an AR build. But, if you were to build one on the cheap, as I am wanting to do, would you build everything from 'stripped' parts?
