Does this kit happen to come with the tools to assemble it? If not, where can I get them?
Paull C on Apr 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This does not come with the tools needed to assemble the kit. At the very minimum, you will want to have a pin punch set and a nylon/brass hammer. If you want to get everything you could possibly need, look for an armorer's kit. This will have pin punces, hammers, vise blocks, wrenches, etc.. The sky is the limit. Welcome to the world of AR assembly.

Kazan M on Jun 25, 2018

How heavy is this kit? I recently held a DPMS panther and it seemed excessively heavy
Kevan T on Nov 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I don't think it's heavy. The weight of ar15s with be pretty universal until you start changing furniture, barrel profile or lenght, muzzle breaks higher capacity mags ect. If you don't want a heavier gun mostly stay away from quad rails, heavy muzzle breaks, 60 and 100 round mags or trying to build a Swiss army knife of ar15s (flash light, laser, 100 round mag, bipod, monopod, rifle scope, 45° off set iron sights, foregrip, brass catcher, side charging handle ect on all on 1 gun) it may make the gun look cool but that adds a ton of weight.
Is the charging handle included? Jon
Judy M on Sep 17, 2018
Does this come with the charging handle? Basically does it come with everything other then the lower? Thanks in advance!
Dave A on May 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, well you need a mag too.
When do you expect it to be back in stock?

Great deal
PSA put together a great deal of value in this kit. Thanks. Packed in a foam lined box, all the components were in good shape, Cleaned it up, had a lower on hand, gave it the once over. Went together very easy, trip to the range proved it to be reliable. Keep up the good work.
