Yes. The kit is comletely, uh, complete. All you need is the lower only. All small parts are included. The upper is already assembled (barrel mounted, dust cover, forward assist etc. are all assembled) as is the bolt carrier and bolt. All you need to do is assemble the fire control group, takedown and pivot pins, buffer tube and stock. Since the barrel is already torqued, all you should need for "specialized tools" is a decent set of punches. It comes with a standard mil spec trigger, in both weight and pull. I figure for this price though, you can spring for a Jard or other higher end trigger, and maybe add a little more $$$ in your search for glass. I am planning one in .204 after I recover from Christmas. So theoretically, if you assemble it yourself, you can get out out from under the rifle, without accessories, for about $700 or less. And I agree with part of the above. Avoid the chrome lining for accuracy. Standard chromoly steel does get the better of stainless steel for ABSOLUTE accuracy, but it is a VERY minimal difference. I prefer stainless just because it's easy to maintain. Good luck.
