    NOTICE: The upper receiver block in the link is for an AR-10.

    I believe he was talking about the Midwest Industries URR.

    That would be a great tool to have for multiple builds.

    I've only assembled/disassembled a couple of uppers so I improvised, to say the least.

    I have used this one as well as the clamshell style blocks. Not sure if anyone else has mentioned to the original poster but invest in a front pivot pin tool they are cheap and it will save you a giant headache.

    Oops, didn't see that. But does teh BCG area differ between an AR10 and AR15? I know the mag well is bigger on the 10.

    Yep, got mine and my first build it took me 45 seconds to put my front takedown pin in, and 30 seconds of that was figuring out how the tool worked without reading the instructions :D

    My first build I shot the spring and detent across the room located the spring but never found the detent. Had to get a replacement detent and I bought the install tool for the second attempt.

    I went with a PSA stripped lower. I was going to go with a PSA upper as well, but like I said it was sold out because I took too long. Any recommendations on an upper? I was looking at the premium uppers. The CHF, double chromed lined, etc.

    The PSA uppers go in and out of stock every couple days. Get on there mailing list and you will get notification couple times a day.
    The CHF versions are made by FN.
    They are a premium.
