I just bought a stripped lower that I will pick up in 10 days. Its going to be a long term project due to budget. This is my first AR project so I was hoping for some advice on tools. Is there a specific link or site you would direct me to read or buy a set? I notice there are kits but is it better to just buy the tools seperate? and advice would be appreciated.

My links give some good info.

Good luck, PM people here if you need help, list your county or city in your profile so people close to you can help out with tools if needed.

dieselpower has some good links...

honestly this is all you need..
with the exception of a hard surface (to back the trigger guard ears) and a screwdriver/allen wrench its all ive used for the last 5 lowers that ive put together.. im sure its just dumbluck that i have not had a rollpin crush itself or blowout on me.. the plastic bag is for putting between the punch and the receiver when hammering the bolt release pin.. paper/tape also works..
your hammer does not have to be broken but somehow it helps..
