Requires a lower receiver to complete, which must be purchased from a FFL dealer or ordered off the internet and delivered to a FFL dealer. FFL transfer fees can vary a great deal depending on your state of residence. For example, transfer fee can be as little as $10 or as much as $80 or more.

AR lowers purchased from internet sources generally cost $60 and up, but occassionally go on sale for as little as $50. Among the cheapest are forged alloy lowers manufactured by Aero Precision. They are often sold under private label branding, such as Aim Surplus, Spikes Tactical or Palmetto State Armory. They are an affordable, high quality foundation for almost any AR15 project. A good match for this budget rifle kit.

Building an AR 15 is not difficult; several excellent quality videos are available on Youtube to visually walk you through each step of the process. The project will require a few specialized tools, including an AR armorer's wrench, a castle nut wrench (often integrated into the armorer's wrench), a couple of sizes of pin punches, a drift punch, a bench vise, an upper receiver vise block (a lower receiver vise block is nice, but you can make due with a polymer AR15 magazine or even a cut down 2x4). Also needed are a small hammer and a pair of needle nosed pliers. A torque wrench is desirable to ensure the barrel nut is torqued to proper specifications.

Note that the carry handle contains the rear sight. A completed build from the carry handle kit will be ready to shoot.

If you opt for the flat top only kit, you will need to invest in some kind of rear iron sight or an optical sighting option, such as a red dot or a telescopic sight. Primary Arms and Vortex make a number of value priced optical sights that would be a good match for a budget AR rifle build.

Yeah, Sarco's been around forever. Don't know about their ARs but they always have some interesting "stuff" to browse. Where else are you going to find an MIG 21 cockpit for sale, not only in single-seat configuration but the two-seater as well!? lol ; )

Building it yourself can save ~$100 or so.

Around here, you can buy an assembled AR (DPMS brand) with a factory warranty for $599 and up.

I just finished a DPMS Oracle Build (flat top AR-15). After investing in all the tools I am tempted to do this again. For the one-off builder, you will need about $40-$100 worth of tools to finish the rifle (depending on quality bought), and a lot of them you won't use anywhere but on an AR. (i.e. Barrell Nut Wrench, Upper and / or Lower vise blocks) So this may NOT be super-slick.

I enjoyed assembling mine (except for getting the gas tube aligned) in all it took me 5-8hours of time to do for a "handy" guy that's never built one before.

Also one reviewer at this site says "The only items that were in question was the extractor spring and trigger tension spring as well as the retainer ring for the forward grips, it was a used one that looked shabby." Curious if they're sending a few used parts or if this guy doesn't know what he's talking about...

Where did you buy those tools? (Are they sold as a tools-kit?)

Combination of Brownells and local gun shows.

There's a kit that may get you started from a tools standpoint. I think it needs more (Roll pin)
punches though.

I got my ball peen hammer and punches from Harbor Freight. Then you'll need a vise, armorer's block, and armorer's wrench. Some blue Loctite might come in handy for the buffer tube.

Hope everyone out there considering buying this knows they have to properly stake the carrier key: http://www.ar15.com/forums/t_2_130/160446_.html

I'm wondering who's the manufacturer of the parts. They list no specs whatsoever. Not that I need to build another AR, but just curious.

For someone who hasn't ever built an ar-15 before, this may not be the best way to go. IMO, a kit like this [del-ton.com] from Del-ton is much easier. These kits already have the upper assembled, head spaced and test fired.

Check out www.ar15.com if you really want to know all there is to building an ar-15.
