So when you buy a stripped lower, to get the rest of the gun you need to buy a "Stock Kit" and a "Trigger Kit" and an "Upper." Is that right?
I need to carve out some time and watch the Brownells video on putting an AR together from parts.
But the Stock and Trigger kits... They look common in the catalog houses, and I think the idea if to give you the whole spiel of that part of the rifle. Is there some group of parts you won't have if you get those kits?
I'm budgetting and slowly accumulating.
And then... will I need specialized tools? I know there is a do-hicky for getting the handguard on and off, but you won't need that right away if you get a complete upper. There is also a wrench like multitool thingamabob that covers a lot needed tools.
The sort of upper I have my eye on is this. A carbine length item with brass deflector and a flat top. Will need EOTech type optics and BUIS, naturally. I'd get a light mount and a foregrip too, but nothing else. The stuff I've added is heavy enough.
