Congrats and have fun! AR builds are like lego sets for adults. I thoroughly enjoy building.

The ar15 is like the old m1 carbine just a damn fun gun to shoot. Once you get it done and touch off that first round your going to jump up and find some one to slap you so you can say why the fk didnt i do it sooner!!!!!!!

Everything went very smooth originally when I opened up my lower parts kit I thought oh **** what did I get myself into and it didn't help rra didn't send any instructions or even a list of what each part was for but I did my homework and by he time I got my lower in my hands i felt comfortable it only took an hour to put the lower together I even got to use my carpentry skills when I made a magwell vice block here's the before and after I still plan on sending in the lower upper and hand guard to get cerakote applied but that can wait till after I shoot
