I finally have the rest of the parts needed to start building my lower receiver. However I don't have any armorer's tools. I expected to need to purchase a vise with upper/lower blocks, armorer's wrench, punch set, and a torque wrench.
Can I get away without a lower vise block? How would you torque down the buffer tube without the lower in a block?
Above quote is just my parts list. Buffer kit swapped with Armalite buffer kit. This is my first build so I'm trying to stay light on tools in case I discover that building rifles isn't for me. I doubt that's the way it'll go, but I don't want to overextend.
