Just curious, what will you use the vise for? Good chance you won't need one.

One like this will work fine or you could go bigger.
3" Swivel Vise
I agree with Quentin, it is not needed unless you want it to hold the mag well block & lower while you mount the upper on it.

Default Lower receiver parts and grip?

Recommendation for lower receiver (.154") parts and grip?

My objective is to get quality even it if costs " a little more".
I want something this forum would be proud of.

I hope I don't come across as being boastful but realize sometimes it's better to pay a little more for something truly better. I don't wear a Rolex, I sold it a long time ago.

Stag and Daniel Defense LPKs are very good, about $65-79... The Magpul MOE pistol grip is hard to beat for $20.

Default Ordering strategy?

Should I shop around or just order all my AR15 M4 parts from one place?

Shop around, I find lots of stuff on Amazon. Amazon often offers free shipping on orders of $25 or more, that is always a good deal.

The Global Sportsman lots of goodies on Amazon.

I shop around but do try to bundle things together to save on shipping. If you buy from many vendors, shipping costs add up. You just have to figure it all up and in the end try to get the best products for your money, including shipping and taxes.

The Ergo Grip is the best AR grip I have wrapped my grubby fingers around. No finger grooves to force your fingers into!
