    Thanks for the input and info so far. This is my first time tackling an upper build (obviously.lol) so taking it in and learning. Please keep it coming.

    I’ve got the lower, lpk, and brace.

    So, I’d be able to re-use the other parts, just need to replace the barrel for a pistol build?

    Yea pretty much lol

    Just make sure your gas system matches your barrel. (Pistol length, carbine length, etc. As well as your buffer weight)

    That 7.5" barrel is pistol length gas tube and will need the proper gas tube, so order it when you order the barrel.
    10.5" barrels can vary on specs.

    You can find cheap upper and lower vice blocks and an armors wrench for cheap on Ebay.

    Your also welcome to borrow mine if your down around Oaks, pa at all
