I'll be getting my upper receiver tomorrow and I need the sportsman kit, and the trigger assembly and someone to put the gun together for me. I've never put an AR together and would like to be there so I can see how it all goes together.

Thanks,

Mark

LOL for MOST of us, it'll be our first times also. Not like we're all AR Savy armorers here. Remember, we're super AR deprived until recently.

Just get some coke, some time and read up on all the assembly threads/instructions that are all over the internet.

Go to www.AR15.com and check out the "build it yourself" forum in the AR Discussion section. Its not that difficult.

I'm sure if you pay us $50 bucks many of us will be willing to build it for you :D

lol some "coke" hahaha anyways i built mine for the FIRST time last weekend, it took me about an hour, a good part of that time i was on my hands and knees looking for that damn forward pin retaining spring. which i hear you can cut down slightly to make it work better and not so stiff. but it does work if you dont cut it!


50 bucks? thats like a buck a min! if you want to drive to ventura i can instruct you ( i am pro now i put one together) and you can learn to do it!

Don't be scared and build it!!
Just make sure you have some Paper Tape to mask some sections off so you won't scratch it while tapping in the Bolt Catch & Trigger Gaurd Roll Pin.
Other then that the only hard part is the Pivot Pin Assembly haha make sure that detent doesn't go flying off some where.

I'll be reaching back to my 1989 PV2 Armorer days to try and remember assembling the guts....

Soon enough though my friend there will be more AR armorers in California than in the rest of the country LOL! Everyone who's a firearms enthusiast has an off-list AR these days :D!

I did lastnight.

The roll pins did not go in easy, and I shot myself in the eye with the pivot pin detent and spring :(
eye protection!! DUHH!!
Otherwise it was EASY!

Mine was a "dry run" as I did not grease anything so I'll be pulling it back apart to "grease her up" as bweiss recommends in his thread.

I believe the current going rate is like $20, guys. That's what Andrew at Iron Sights in Oceanside charges - I think he said he's an NRA-certified armorer.

Heck, I'll build one for $20, I've put together three of my own, one for a friend, and supervised his second. :)

I put my first one together in 2 hours, in December and I only lost one pivot pin spring and detent. I was in a panic until I figured out the J&T put extras in the kit for fumble fingers like myself. I just did my fourth one last week and it took less than 1/2 an hour.

I'm thinking about having an AR assembly party on March 18th. Anyone who is interested PM me to discuss. I live in Orange County.

Build it inside a large zip lock bag.

When it flies its safe and easy to locate in the bag.

when i did my first one, i arranged a box for the detent to fly into.

lined it whites towels all over.

Theres a guy in Azusa named Larry Hirota who gunsmiths out of his home, him and his dad have been doing Garands FALs M14s and ARs for over 20 years. Definately the highest quality and lowest price gunsmithing in the 626 area code.

They are called "Triple H Accurizing".
626-334-2270
626-334-1883

I had a FAL built and he charged around $150 for complete kit build, park, trigger work and CA conversion.

I'm in San Gabriel, and I've assembled about six or seven by now. Did mine and my buddies' AR's. Can't get enough of assembling them, feels like I'm doing my part giving the DOJ The Finger. Heck, I'd do yours for free!

(It's embarassingly simple, really. Go to the ARFCOM online instructions, and take your time.)

YOU CAN DO IT!! :D

Thanks for the replies guys, but a few members have offered to help me, but I can't seem to find a parts kit, and if I can't get one tomorrow at the Glendale gun show, I'll have to order it online and get it next week.

And thanks for everyones responses......

There is a guy on ARFCOM selling LPK's sort of "pre-assembled". He does the hard part for you, pretty much for free.

RBPrecision.com...you may have to email him to ask for details, but I think I may go this route.

Yes, it's cheating. I don't care.:p

+1 for Rbprecision. I got 2 LPK for 108 shipped.

http://www.rbprecision.com/id14_rb_lower_parts_kits__49_00.htm

They also include a extra detent so if one fly away, you'll still have an extra available.

Didn't you get the LPK in the Box with your order???

Yes I did get the LPK with the upper, and it's already together in 1 piece. The LPK's from RB are for my friends.

If you need to order one give tanneryshop.com a look. I bought 2 from William and feel better giving my $ to someone I can identify with than a nameless shop. He doesn't have the kits listed on his site, but if you e-mail him he gets back to you quick. Prices were very reasonable.

NO MAN!!! Coke is not a good thing to use when doing this... you'll be up for hours and might end up taking your gun down the street for a walk in your underpants.. hahaa..
