Every bit of info you would need you can find online. I built mine and the entire AR platform was foreign to me. You can find how-to charts and parts lists all across the internet. A punch set and a barrel wrench are the only tools you would need. The trickiest for me was putting the lower parts kit in. Very doable though.

I did mine that way because I knew the features I wanted...I did not want to buy a built gun to then discard parts to add what I wanted.

Find yourself a lower and start from there. It has to go through the FFL. After that you can do as you wish. As long as it isn't a pistol build.

It was a lot of fun to build. If you have the time you may really enjoy doing it yourself.
