It's a good idea to buy a wrench for the castle nut. I'd get the kind that has three teeth not just one. Very cheap, $5-10 from lots of places and you can throw it in with another order to save shipping.
The biggest issue with assembling an AR isn't so much getting the parts together right - it's getting the right parts together. You'll remember the quality of a gun long after you forget how much you paid for it.
