Default Work bench and vice, small DIY?

I need a temporary work bench and vice to assemble my first AR15 M4.
My single car garage is already partitioned half gym half tools and large tool box.
Any idea on which would be the smallest bench vice to accomplish the above?

A bench vice is not a real necessity when assembling an AR, it can be done without one. But a good clean work bench is a must.
Cause the little springs & things will get lost if you don't watch for them real close.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

I use one of the small clamp on vices and have changed a foreend and to hold the plastic lower block.

I've had mine for about two years. It ain't fancy but it works great.

I have a Tipton Best Gun Vise but when it comes to ARs, the Plastix comes out!
