I would recommend an AR Armors tool (DPMS), a set of Roll Pin punches and possibly a stock tool depending in the type of stock you're wanting (not sure what laws are up there). Some tape is useful to protect the finish of the gun.
I have my lower done already, DPMS with a Stag LPK. I need an upper and furniture still. I am debating on building or buying an upper, i will probably just buy one complete, thinking about 6.5 grendel right now. I am just curous what tools specific to AR assembly and maintenance i would need? I see a few different fore end/shroud removal tools, i am going to be ordering a buffer tube castle nut wrench but would like to get everything i need in one shot. I will probably get the Magpul MOE furniture to match the stuff i have for the SR1 now.
