Just a simple setup would be, in no particular order:

 

  • Vise
  • AR Tool - I have a powder coated green AR tool, forgot who makes it.
  • Screwdrivers
  • Good Lighting - Seriously, a good light source goes a long ways in the ease of building things. I have a drafting lamp very similar to this type.
  • AR Mat - Useful for putting stuff together (and cleaning of course) your AR on your desk/dinner table, so your wife or SO won't murder you. I have this cleaning mat.
  • Roll Pin Punches - I used a set of regular punches from Lowe's for a while, i finally got around to getting a set of actual roll pin punches on Amazon recently.
  • Small Hammer - I got this small 8-ounce hammer on Amazon. It's perfect for use with the roll pin punches.
  • Mallet - Useful for hitting things without marring up the finish.
  • Vise Block - I use a Magpul Bev block for work on my lower or upper. Waiting for the next Geissele sale so i can snag a Geissele Super Reaction Rod to replace the Bev block on upper work.
  • Allen Wrenches - I have this set of 3 hex-torx allen wrenches. Super handy for rails and other mount screws. Might also want a long handle set if you use a hex screw for your pistol grip like i do.
  • Torque Wrench - I have this Tekton torque wrench for barrels nuts, castle nuts (if you do torque yours, i don't usually), and whatever else needs to be torqued.
  • Torque Screwdriver Kit - I have this Wheeler Torque Wrench/Screwdriver set, super handy for screws that require a certain torque spec.

     

    That's what i can think of off the top of my head, you probably won't need all of that if you only plan on building a lower first. It'll be useful down the line to get most of those tools, but i'd go with first:

  • AR tool
  • Bev Block/Vise Blocks/Reaction Rod
  • Roll Pin Punches
  • Vise

    If you have Amazon Prime, there's quite a bit of stuff you can get on there, it's where i got most of my tools.

For that money id buy another ar15 gun cleaning mat

u/Foxman50 · 5 pointsr/battlestations

Its actually a gun cleaning mat, but its exactly the same material as any normal mouse pad! Amazon Link Here

u/duckduck-goose · 5 pointsr/Gunsforsale

Are all of these brand new?
Looks like the handgun ones have plastic wrap but wasn't sure about the long gun ones.

Amazon is selling some of these/similar products for similar pricing.

Here's a cheaper version of the AR mat.

u/fuckitsfixed · 4 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Has anyone here ever used a gun cleaning mat as a mousepad? Considering they are just as big and about half the price of a "gaming" extended mousepad.

What I was thinking

u/superdelux86 · 4 pointsr/gundeals

> Tek Mat

$19.88

u/EMCoupling · 4 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

The exact one.

Search "TekMat" on Amazon for a ton and pick your favorite gun.

A lot of people like to use them as mousepads because they're pretty much the same as the cloth gaming mousepads, but you get more area for cheaper.

u/price1869 · 3 pointsr/ar15
u/Cazmir09 · 3 pointsr/pcgaming

also won't move around the way small mouse pads do. I have a Medium Razer Goliathus and that stupid thing keep slipping around cuz it doesn't have enough friction with the table. I'm going to look into getting one of these bigass mousepads. I think for the price this is the best bet as it seems many many people use it.

u/akavino · 3 pointsr/battlestations

Your wallpapers made me think of this series of gun cleaning mats, which someone here was using one for their setups: https://www.amazon.com/Tekmat-AR-15-Black-Long-36-AR15-BK/dp/B0036N474S

It's a TekMat and they're pretty neat.
Amazon
They make a bunch of different ones too.

Don't have one myself but have heard some people love using these gun cleaning mats as mouse pads, the graphics on them are super cool plus they're big enough to cover under your keyboard and mouse!

u/khanhd92 · 2 pointsr/battlestations

The mousepad is actually a gun cleaning mat from Tekmat. They come in a variety of sizes depending on the type of gun blueprint that you choose. I also recommend these speakers if you can find them on craiglist or a yard sale. You just need to do a crossover upgrade (kits and tutorials are available with a little Googling) and they will blow any other bookshelf speakers with a MUCH higher price range out of the water.

Here's a link to the AR15 mat: http://www.amazon.com/TekMat-12-Inch-36-Inch-Cleaning-Imprint/dp/B0036N474S/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1427589159&sr=8-1&keywords=tekmat

u/Helevitia · 2 pointsr/ar15

haha, I was wondering if somebody would ask about that.

Here you go.

Also, they sell gun mats, too.

AR15 Mat.

I prefer the computer mat because it's huge! But that is the downside as well, takes up a lot of space.

u/iNViSiBiLiTi · 2 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards
u/admiralnorman · 2 pointsr/buildapcsales

Had it. It was okay. I highly prefer a TekMat for a similar price.

$11 - Slightly smaller - 1911 handgun

$20 - Full keyboard size - AR15 Rifle

Edit - They also make those for many other guns. I have the MP-5 at work and the Desert eagle at home.

u/austin713 · 2 pointsr/battlestations
u/YamSs · 2 pointsr/ultrawidemasterrace

Not a mousepad as far as I understand. You can use it as one if you like tough.

u/dbinkerd · 2 pointsr/ar15

It is something like this (not sure if it is the exact one, but similar enough).

u/ethics- · 2 pointsr/guns

You can usually just get them on Amazon. Seems like they're currently OOS, like many other online retailers.

Here's the link, for what its worth.

u/aje14700 · 2 pointsr/battlestations

Where, not why. I know why, that's why I want one too, plus I actually could use it for it's original purpose, stripping an AR-15. But a quick google search answered my question.

u/badtopogigio · 2 pointsr/guns
u/dandjcro · 2 pointsr/battlestations

TekMat - They were popular on reddit awhile ago.

u/Kacay · 2 pointsr/battlestations

Quite a few people also seem to use a TekMat.

Edit: Also /r/askbattlestations

u/bleedcmyk · 2 pointsr/mechmarket

Its probably a Tek Mat. They're for gun cleaning / assembly, but its literally the same material as a cloth mousepad.

https://www.amazon.com/TekMat-12-Inch-36-Inch-Long-Cleaning/dp/B0036N474S

Just search for TekMat on amazon and you should be able to find a ton of different guns.

u/tally_in_da_houise · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

Tekmat

12" x 36" size

u/murdermaschine · 1 pointr/Design
u/shoangore · 1 pointr/hardwareswap

I use Tekmat's bench mats - originally intended for cleaning long guns as it has exploded views of the guns, but I use one at work and one at home- I LOVE them. They're cheaper than the computer branded stuff (corsair and razer carry them but for a much higher price) at around $20-22 average. Way more than enough space for keyboard, mouse and HOTAS setup to all fit comfortably on it.

Not to mention they look awesome.

Slightly cheaper

u/Red_1977 · 1 pointr/canadaguns

A friend got it for me.

I found an AR 15 one after a quick google search on Amazon.ca

I'm sure they have the gun you want there somewhere

u/FreddyFuego · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Look into TekMat, they make cleaning mats for guns but the material they use is the same as all the HQ mouse pads around for a much cheaper price. I use this one and love it, plenty of room and never slides around on my desk.

u/Fjiord · 1 pointr/MouseReview

I would like to know how different is this mouse mat compared to a gun mat. Have been wanting to get a huge mouse mat for a while.

u/DiabeetusMan · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

The first one. Cheap-ish, big, looks neat

Link

u/iKrunk · 1 pointr/ar15
u/SovereignAxe · 1 pointr/guns
u/krakissi · 1 pointr/MouseReview

A lot of people who are really into big mouse pads will get these AR-15 Cleaning Mats. It's longer than 28 inches, but you could cut it shorter. Why the length constraint, just desk space?

u/xblackdog · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

the one in the second link is a Tekmat for cleaning weapons, but it's made of the same stuff mousepads are.

u/pokerd · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

Thanks! It's a TekMat - though I got mine on Amazon for the free shipping. I'm probably going to get the AR-15 one next so I can fit my mouse on there as well.

And nice choice with the XD9SC :D I'm a big fan of the Springfield lineup, and am now considering either an XD-S or 1911 of some variety for my next purchase. That probably won't be for awhile though with my mech KB habit.

u/bstock · 0 pointsr/battlestations

You can also use gun cleaning mats, I've used this one since 2015 and it doesn't even look very worn.
