There are few guns on the market that offer relative ease of customization. However, the AR 15 is an exception, which is perhaps one of the reasons this is one of the more popular weapons for gun owners across the United States.
The Right Tool for the Job
With this ease of customization and the ability to easily change out parts, having a good selection of AR 15 tools to be able to work on the gun will be important. Although it may be possible to use general tools for some projects, not having the right options is likely to result in problems with the loosening and tightening of parts. It can also cause issues with scratching and even damaging components or the gun itself.
Finding quality tools for an AR 15 is not always an easy task. While some sporting goods stores carry the odd tool, few carry entire kits. Of those that do offer individual AR 15 tools and kits, many are imported or very low-quality tools, which may mean they don’t offer the performance and long life you expect for the high price.
When shopping for AR 15 tools, avoid going to general merchandise website that is just a middleman selling a wide variety of all types of shooting supplies and sporting goods.
Instead, buy directly from the American manufacturer or an approved distributor. The top manufacturers of AR 15 tools may provide handy dealer or distributor locators, which gives you the option to buy online or go to the retail outlet to avoid the shipping delay.
Take the time to review the different parts and components the manufacturer offers in addition to the individual tools and toolkits. Many of these manufacturers provide a full line of aftermarket parts for the AR 15 weapon, which may give you ideas and options for further customization.
