Diamondhead VR-S, I had never heard of it either but I highly recommend them! They are a little bit cheaper than Troy. I really liked how the barrel nut just needed a crescent wrench to tighten!

Silly. I charge less to assemble an entire rifle, upper and lower. If you DIY, get the AGI video on assembling an AR from a kit. Excellent step by step video for beginners. NO HS gauges needed.

Definitely like that handguard. I don't hate rails but I do like that you aren't forced to accept the with the Diamondhead. Add em if you want them.

Just completed my first custom build will say you don't need a gunsmith for anything on an AR as there are plenty of YouTube videos to walk you thru the process.

Do not under any circumstances use the Franklin Gun shop for gunsmithing and they are overpriced. I carried a shotgun to them to have work done on it. Was overcharged, gun was not fixed, and gun had cosmetic damage from the gunsmith. Horrible is all I can say. The owner told me personally that it was only
a $1200 gun and the scratching and screw damage was acceptable to him.
