    Okay so i have been gone for a long long time, as i have not had the cash to order the rest of the parts for my AR. Now i have the cash to finish off the lower, and i have an LPK picked out (http://palmettostatearmory.com/index.php/ar-15-05/lower-parts/moe-lower-build-kit.html) however i dont know what the best tools are for completing my lower.

    I know that i need:
    Castle nut wrench (for stock/buffer tube)
    Punches (for all the pins)
    Hammer (for hitting the punches)

    Just wondering if you have any suggestions on where i can pick up these tools for a cheap price, because like i said, i dont have much money to spend :D

    I know you can find all the tools you need at CheaperThanDirt.com, i don't know what quality they are though. I've gotten some stuff from them over the years and the only time i was unhappy with a purchase they took real good care of me.

    Harbor Freight for the rubber mallete and punches. Order the AR multi tool at the same time as the LPK.

    Interesting, a friend was just complaining about a DPMS armorers wrench. Strong and heavy but didn't fit right. He sent it back wherever he got it.

    Mine's a 3-prong from Bushmaster, actually YHM I think. Well made, works fine.
