What tools are needed to assemble a lower, considering one has a receiver, parts kit, and stock?

buy a pivot pin installation tool. Or make one, it's just a piece of brass or aluminum the same diameter as the pivot pin with a hole in it the size of the detent. You can do it without the tool but it makes things a lot easier and you say the F word a lot less.

they have one there but you can probably pick them up anywhere.

As for the detent tool, a quarter inch wooden dowel with a groove cut down the side for the detent to ride in while you're sliding it through the pin holes also works well and costs about .75 cents :wink:

Thanks for the replies... I found several sources for AR tools. I need to place a few orders and then I can get my lower assembled.

Here's some tool resources I found in case others are looking, too:
