BUILDER’S HELPER

Field and Stream - - CAMPFIRE - —J.v.B.

If you’re even a lit­tle bit me­chan­i­cal, you can prob­a­bly build your own AR, but don’t go it alone. Along with many of the ba­sic parts you’ll need for your ri­fle, Brownells.com has a “Learn” sec­tion that pro­vides a se­ries of twominute videos that will make the process much eas­ier. In ad­di­tion to com­mon household tools, you’ll need a cou­ple of in­ex­pen­sive spe­cialty tools, also avail­able from Brownells, in­clud­ing a butt­stock tool, a lower-re­ceiver vise block, and a bar­rel ex­ten­sion torque tool. While com­mon AR-15 parts are easy to work be­cause specs are stan­dard­ized, AR-10 parts of­ten are not. Con­sult the man­u­fac­turer or sup­plier to be sure that the parts you want will all play nicely to­gether. That done, as­sem­bly can be com­pleted in an evening.
