Actually, yes. I think the research is crucial to anyone wanting to do a build. While it doesn't look too complicated, once you pay attention and do some research, this ain't a lego set where you can slap it together however you want and not have it either just go click or boom in your face, so the research assists you in learning about the firearm, and what it is actually capable of, as well as realizing that the limit is entirely dictated by one's wallet and how much bling they want.
What part of 'shall not be infringed' confuses people?

Years ago when the AWB sunset I began my research on getting a couple "evil" rifles. I pretty quickly settled on a WASR 10/63 but took many long months before buying a stripped lower receiver. I came close to grabbing a Bushmaster off the rack but as I got up to speed realized doing a build with quality parts made the most sense for me. The process took time but was enjoyable.
The biggest issue with assembling an AR isn't so much getting the parts together right - it's getting the right parts together.
