    The hardest part is just sorting out all the parts and identifying them before you get started.
    Just find a parts list with pictures and start laying them out so you know what's what.
    parts list


    I've used the video above twice.. and found it very easy
    Hardest part can be the detent pins.. watch a few different build videos to get an idea

    as long as you got the armor's wrench, the thing that looks like a multi tool. and you're careful. i build mine up with a small hammer, allen keys and that wrenchy thing. used to working this way so it wasn't any extra hassle. mind your trigger springs. those were easy to mess up the positioning of.

    having already assembled ar's might have made my mileage a little smoother.
    i did use an automatic center punch to lock the castle nut.

    Mindset, skill set, tool set - in that order.

    If you know you can put it together, have decent dextrous skills, then tools don't matter. I normally use a set of cheap dental picks to put lowers together, because sometimes one hand has to pull as another pushes.

    got you both beat. I wish I had the parts needed to finish (without tools) the poor lonely freedom seeds left in my gun drawer.

    got two lonely lowers left after my pistol build.
