Select the instructions based on the version of the product you own. Please note, that while the videos are very informative, you will need to download the PDF Instructions First, and read them. The videos while informative, do NOT contain the sizing info that is required to properly mill out the lower receiver. We urge you to use the videos as a secondary visual guide after reading the instructions.

How to Build AR15s: Several great links and articles are included below to get you started. Choose which article fits your learning style. These articles also can be utilized for the 308 WarrHogg rifle build as well.
Key differences on our AR15 as you read through the articles: Note that when they discuss the Bolt Catch assembly in these articles, our system uses the stainless steal dowel pin and set screw rather than a roll pin that comes with most Lower Parts Kits. Just ignore thse sections that don't apply. Install the spring and mag catch buffer pin, but use our stainless pin to hold the mag catch in place, then hold the stainless dowel pin in place by screwing the small black set screw into place. You'll have to use a little bit of force to get the set screw going.
On the AR15 Lower and our 308 Lower, we also use a square nut and philips screw to install the pistol grip rather than the screw and washer provided in most Lower Parts Kits.
