Buy quality parts, build properly... and shoot it.

I know some of you have an aneurism just thinking about this.
Yeah... I'd say for a first build I'd check the head space just for the practice. I have a full set, go, no-go, and field, that can be used but not lent. I don't lend tools... sorry

Rather than buy the tools for one build, stick around and get to know members around here. There’s actually some that enjoy building them, whereas I just enjoy shooting them. It brings them pleasure to build?!? Have at it!

Hatin's part of the game... he had some good nuggets of advice. I'm still not on board with the Mobil 1 thing but hey, that's just me.

Mix the Mobil 1 with high temp lithium grease. You'll love it. It's awesome stuff.

At some point you just donít need it. See the recent lube thread. People denigrated his work. Thatís inaccurate and unnecessary.

OP, seems like you have plenty of help here, so I'll just butt out. Once you build it and take it to the range, maybe that's when the fun will begin...
