we will start with your typical AR evil black rifle. It is the black Barbie doll of the rifle world. You can dress it up for a night out on the town or a weekend in the woods camping :D And EVERYTHING can be attached to this weapon in some form :flipoff2: But humor aside, the AR is a very nice building platform. You can build anything from a plinker to a full on target destroyer. You can get an upper receiver in just about any caliber from .22 to .50BMG.

This build is from your basic bare lower and a mail order assembled and headspaced upper. Later more complicated builds and assembling your own upper will be added as needed.

assembling your lower is pretty much the....umm..."hard part" :laughing: but here is that part.
This is the inside parts.

This way you know what the fuck these little parts are.

and your pile of shit


The only "tools" I am using are common shit you should have in the house. A pair of robogrip pliers, a brass hammer, a brass drift and a flathead screwdriver. You can improvise most of these tools.

First we put in the magazine release


stick it in the lower receiver


and drop the spring on the threaded post

now screw the button on a few threads


next use something to push the button INSIDE the receiver so you can twirl around the magazine catch to tighten it


and tighten till the screw is flush with the button


next is the trigger guard.
stick the roll pin in the front hole


put some paper or some shit on the other side and use pliers to push till it just sticks through

next install the roll pin. some tape will keep you from fucking up the receiver with the brass hammer. the brass wipes of anyway.


tap the pin till it just pokes through


and drive it the rest of the way with the lever in place


next is the detents and springs for the front pin. "supposedly" the hardest parts to do :rolleyes: :flipoff2:
It goes in this hole in front


this is how you do it:
Drop the spring in the hole, hold the receiver between your legs, with your right fingers put the brass pin on the spring and get in just in the hole, with your left fingernail push it the rest of the way in and hold it, now with the right hand stick the front pin aimed at the hole it goes and place it ON your finger nail, pull away nail and insert dowel with the "channel" in it away from the spring/pin till you get it in the hole like this

you could also use a knife blade instead of your fingernail

buffer retainer and spring goes in here


press the detent spring in with whatever plate/stock/whatever you are using


and screw the buffer tube in till it locks in the buffer retainer.


and lock your shit in place with however your shit is supposed to be locked in :laughing:

insert your buffer and spring and you are done

Very similar to the thread on AR15.com. The way I got the pivot pin spring and detent was a friend and a knife. Worked well, we only launched the detent once. :D

they used things like ".125 steel punches" and shit like that, instead of "a pair of fucking craftsman RoboGrip pliers" I bet :flipoff2:

oh and before the question is even asked:
DPMS receiver $125
ACE SOCOM stock $150
DoubleStar upper and lower parts kit $500
Ergo grip $20

The upper is a 16" chrome lined fluted heavy barrel chambered in 5.56NATO with a flat top upper.

Yes this weapon can be built for less, and a "generic" AR can be built for a LOT less. But go and price a decent built weapon to what you want to build and you will see the price difference immediately :eek:

Good post doc. It is not very hard to build a AR, it should not take anyone more than an houre to assemble a lower.
It took me less than that while photographing and cooking dinner :laughing: It took longer to resize the images and do all the typing. :flipoff2:

What kind of retard can't build an AR?!?! They're like Legos for gun nuts. :flipoff2: :D
But we still needed a "How to" thread so we can put our custom uppers and carbine builds in it as well :flipoff2:

Oh yeah, not gay.
This forum will be a "ghey free" zone as much as possible. People of alternative sexuality are welcome, but any guns or threads of questionable sexuality will not survive. :evil:

Now we will get into uppers. shit on how to swap a barrel or install a full floating handguard. you WILL need specialized tools for it. a armorers wrench and a receiver action block would be a good start.
used a barrel vice3 and it turned to suck with my heavy barrel so I just clamped the bitch with some aluminum jaws. whooopty fucking do, so I have some aluminum marks on my barrel :flipoff2:
well lets get to the taking apart.

Take off the muzzle brake/flash hider if so equipped. Its "normal" threaded, everything on an AR is.


Next knock out the roll pin in the gas block that holds the gas tube in


Wiggle the gas tube out of the gas block, you may need to CAREFULLY move it wit some pliers. Dont worry if you dick it up, they are cheap.


push it to the side of the gas block and pull it out of the upper receiver
Here is you tube


Next drift out the gas block pins. They are "usually" tapered and drift from left to right. Check to make sure the right side is bigger or just say fuck it and whack away.
