I'm very pleased with the results. The only tools I had were a hammer and a sock and it came out quite nicely. Not a single scratch.

Now all I need is 750 bucks for an upper and a stock.

yup congrats although i think the hard part in any oll build is first choosing what you want then finding the money.

Yeah, tell me about it. I made a deal with the wife that I'm only spending money on the gun that I make off side jobs.

So if anyone's got any computer problems in the southern california area, PM me. :D

Nicely done! Not a single scratch... pretty impressive! Now you have to sit and look at it till you get the funds. Talk about a tease... I had to look at my assembled lower of my first build for about 4 months before the upper finally came. The wait makes it so much sweeter though. You will only appreciate it even more!

ya the wait makes it soooooo much sweeter and the beauty of the ar is you can buy a part here and there and every time you get a part you will just get that much more excited.

I went with the bullet button. The thought of having to break the rifle open to load it sounded pretty lame.

Ive said this before.. you DONT need ANY special tools to assemble a lower. I did mine with pliers and a screwdriver ... (or an allen wrench depending on your LPK) - ok and some tape...

I was so nervous to assemble my first lower, thinking I would need this or that. Once you have 1 under your belt and see just how simple it is.... well.. im preaching to the choir here
