Many sites and sources say anyone can build a quality AR15 on their kitchen table with one multifunction tool. Yes, you can build one that functions but building one that is "spot on" takes more than $20 in inexpensive tools. Here we are going to show you how to install a milspec trigger, two ways to tune it, install custom triggers and how to tune them. We will square out uppers, torque our barrels along with tuning gas systems, buffers and selecting the right parts for your build.

    After years of building and repairing uppers along with complete firearms we have realized some people either do not want to build their upper, invest in the required tools for a single custom AR 15 or AR 10 upper, or have built one that has issues and can't seem to sort it out to thier satisfaction. While I have a full time job plus a part time job working as a gunsmith I also build and repair uppers to the clients specifications. If your interested in having a custom AR upper built then please use below email and we will work up a price for a top quality upper built to your specifications or repair your troubled upper whether gas driven or piston driven. I only work on uppers through this site but if have a complete rifle that needs trigger tuning or other work I can provide you with the contact information for the gunshop I do all FFL required work through.
