Torque wrench is the key to building an upper. You can get a cheap one at harbor freight. Also some auto parts stores loan tools like this. Something to think about if your only going to need it once. Make sure it fits your barrel nut wrench, some are 1/2", some are 3/8". Mine has both size square holes.

PS if you are going free float handguard make sure that nut fits your wrench, and they both connect to the torque wrench. A lot of free floats need a special (+$) wrench....

...... If anyone has spare parts to donate to the project let me know.
I am happy with my BlackHoleWeaponry 7", the build when well.

I think the money spent on the AR wrench is well spent. BRD may hit. Friends may want to borrow/trade.

I used my woodworking vise, Philippine Mahogany faced, without any special AR-15 blocks, clamps, vise or such. Torquing the barrel nut went well. I used the DPMS wrench and one of my existing torque wrenches.

The vice has a big surface area and provides plenty of support.

Ok I received my BHW barrel yesterday and thought I finally had everything I needed to finish my 264 LBC rifle but noooooooo. When I ordered the barrel back on 12/3/13 I was told I needed a type 2 bolt which I ordered from Tactical Ammunition. When I got the barrel it's marked type 1 so I got on the BHW forum and contacted one of their Pro Staff and was told they had gone to type 1 chambers several months ago. GREAT! I was advised to contact T.W. and ask to exchange the bolt. I did yerserday and am waiting for a reply. The guy said if I had a problem PM him and he would take care of it. I think the 2 companies are connected as they are located only a few house #'s apart. We'll see.
