I would like to rent or borrow a good quality AR armorers wrench this coming weekend. I'd be happy to leave a cash deposit, if you like. I live in Sonoma County.

Or you could just purchase one.

HERE (http://www.brownells.com/aspx/NS/store/ProductDetail.aspx?p=12795&title=AR-15%2fM16+ARMORERS+WRENCH) is AR armorer's wrench for $40 at Brownells.

A rule I try to follow is always buy tools if you can. It may seem like you will never need it again but you will someday. Black Rifle Disease hits everyone. Once you get the disease it takes more then a 12 step program to kick it. :D

$35 shipped. I also other tools available. I'll drop the price down a lil if you want more than one tool.

Thanks all. I may have bitten off more than I chew. I finally have all the parts for my build and my friend, who was a Sheriffs Dept. armorer, has decided to go to Europe for 3 weeks. I was counting on his help. I guess that I can put things on hold, but I was looking forward to actually owning something besides a box-o-parts.:rolleyes:

Go to ar15.com and look in the AR-15 forum, go to the 'Build It Yourself' section. There's a great article & instructions on building your own. I just did my first one with that article -- easy as pie!

I have seen the AR15.com guide to building my own. I have also seen 2 posts of people who have seriously buggered their lowers through their own inexperience. That's me. I know what a screw driver looks like and, on a good day, I know which end I hold and which end I poke the screw with. That's why I, at least, wanted the correct tools for the job and some, knowledgeable, hand-holding from a guy with twenty years of messing with the things.
