Just completed my first AR build. It includes:

PSA 16" Middy Upper
PSA MOE LPK and Stock Kit
Rifle Gear Aggressor Lower
Viper Vortex PST 2.5-10 Scope

I'm very happy with it. I still need to align/level the scope reticle. I spent about an hour trying to do it without a vice to no avail and a lot of frustration. Any suggestions on a reasonably priced gun vice that would work well? Or maybe just a vice from home depot?

Thanks for all the help to those that gave suggestions. :D

Nice ar congrats. I bought my vice at harbor freight and it is plenty good for putting a vice block into for your ar. I think I paid around 35 bucks for it and no issues with it yet. Its not a wilton like the one that is mounted on my work truck but it gets the job done. Not sure if you have a harbor freight locally but it's worth the money.

very clean

I might need to invest in a scope, 100 yards with the RDS is getting old...

I have this upper vise block and I'm very happy with it.

As far as leveling the scope, I used feeler gauges between the bottom of the scope and the flat area of the mount to keep it level while tightening the rings. I've also used a stack of razor blades in the same way. You could also use playing cards.

PS nice rifle! Looks just like one of my old builds.
