The Best AR-15 Tools & Kits

The AR-15 is the most popular rifle in America, in large part because it’s incredibly versatile.

You can change-out most components – upper and lower receivers, furniture, triggers, and just about everything else – and there are enough third-party options to make your head spin.

Plus tweaking your rife to get it just right is a big part of its appeal, but you’ve got to have the right set of tools for the job (there’s a special place in hell for anyone who gets within 10 feet of a barrel nut with a pair of channel locks).

No amateur armorer can assemble an AR-15 without the right gunsmithing tools, so we’re going to look at the best AR-15 tools on the market for aspiring gunsmiths.
