Boyer, if you've ever split cases and done a crank rebuild on your bike, then a lower build will be a piece of cake. It's still just a mechanical thing. All you need is a good set of punches, a small hammer, and a good solid workbench.

Well if you're not in a hurry building a lower then buying an upper is the best way to go. I just can't emphasize how much research you should put in to this. Most people are lazy doing the required homework then disappointed in their rifle when they start figuring things out. You can avoid that by learning exactly what is out there and what you want.

Good luck and be sure to ask questions when something stumps you.

I have split cases and done a crank rebuild on two-stroke and four-stroke motors. Both times with some assistance from the man i have mentioned in my first post.

As for the tools that is no problem, and everyone here as helped sent me in the correct direction. Now it is time for me to start doing more and more research, then ask some questions and start ordering parts.
