Default Oracle kit and PSA lower 1st build

I just ordered a oracle DPMS kit from stacks . I had to look a while to find this
Particular kit . I would say 90 percent of businesses were backordered, same thing with the del-ton kits. I got a PSA lower from jssports. Same issue with lower also. I have bought four other Ars in the past year, but this is my first build . I orders a reciever block, a punch kit and universal tool for barrel and a a vice . If you guys have any recomendations it would be appreciated.

First thing I would do is read the stickies at the top of the page.

I also really recommend the tool brownells sells for installing the pivot pin detent. I know some people have found home remedies for this. But after losing 2 detente in the depths of our carpet I won't go without it again.

Other than that be sure to have some loctite handy and a torque wrench too.

You know it's impossible to have everything you need. There's always one last thing you don't have!

Not sure the maximum ft/lb you will need, I think 80 would be plenty...as for the fittings needed the universal armorers wrench will have a place for the head of the socket. But again a few you tube videos and the stickies here should give you plenty of guidance
