I have built a couple of Ar lowers but always just bought a complete upper. Question is it better to build the upper yourself the tools will cost me a little extra but I think it may be worth the extra. Any suggestions.
Hunt with your kids now. So that you don't have to hunt for them later

Better? What do you mean? Cost, Accuracy? I dont think it would be worth the extra cost to buy all the components for a complete upper build. Unless you are going to be building several uppers. When you go buying bolts,receivers, bolt carriers, tools, go no go gauges, barrels, hand guards, sights, etc. your not gonna be saving money. If you are wanting accuracy I would buy a complete match upper if you want it in the 5.56 caliber. If your wanting accuracy in a .308 platform I would build a custom bolt action on a remington 700 receiver, with picatinny rail, heavy barrel, HS precision stock, bager ordnance detatch mag.
Just my opinion, good luck

I looked into and priced all the components and come to the conclusion that you can buy a completed upper much cheaper than building one. I guess it boils down to what you want,if the set up you want is available already assembled why go through the hassle and extra expense to build one.
