PSA AR-15 "Stealth" Stripped Lower Receiver
BEST ANSWER: Basic tools. A set of needle nose pliers. A hammer. Might scratch the receiver a little with basic tools but that shouldn't matter to you if you're building an AR for what it is intended for being: a tool.

With this particular kit which lower applications have been deemed good choices. I am 73 years old and like to tinker around with taking thing apart and rebuilding them was thinking about assembling one as a gift for my son and have something to remember me by. Aside from lower to complete build what other suggestions would you make as to make this project something he would appreciat . My research of your products and the reviews are extremely tempting for me to go forward with this project, but I would like to have your opinion as you now have all the facts???
George D on Jul 7, 2018
I have one of these kits and used an Anderson stripped lower and it fits nice. Finish is not a high end look, but functions flawlessly and performs just the same. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase this, and possibly one of PSA's stripped lowers to finish the build
Does the lower have to be shipped to ffl for Mississippi?
bryan G on Jun 2, 2018

Joel W on Jun 7, 2018
What is a good rear sight to get with this model?
Christopher F on Jun 10, 2018

Wonderful Wino on Jul 7, 2018

Perfect standard rifle.
If you want an affordable ar go for it. I've got 700 rounds through one. I did have to replace the firing pin retaining pin but that was only a 1-2$ pin.
