    Anyone want to help?

    I have to completely strip my AR to send the upper and lower in for Gunkote.

    Can I do it myself or can someone in my area show me how to do it..

    I think I could do the lower myself but I need to take off the barrel and what not...

    THX

    :thumbup:

    I will supply the beer and muchas gracias!

    You'll need an action block and a wrench, if I had them I would take you up on the free beer! I tend to mooch them off others as needed...:D

    It's not difficult by any means, but do find someone with the correct tools, or you can damage the upper.

    OK well can anyone lend me a punch set and the barrel and stock wrench??

    I got almost all of it done, I just need the gas tube punch , and the wrenches.

    Come on guys, I guess I could buy em but that is like $80

    You going to the show today?

    There were plenty of wrenches at the last one for <$30

    And a set of roll pin punches can be had @ harbor freight for <$20 ( if you are going to buy anything, get these, it will help immensely when you assemble your next lower....) :thumbup:

    Now the expensive part is the clamshell for the receiver....


    Heh....I'm not helpin' am I.....:bluelaugh:

    I am not going to the gunshow this time.. too much money for parking and getting in to buy nothing..

    I have faith someone around here will hook a brother up!

    Saw that...;)

    Someone will hook you up, they've helped my sorry butt numerous times...:thumbup:

    Seriously though, get yourself a set of roll pin punches at the minimum, they have saved my butt a few times.
