    Is this worth buying or should I buy each tool individually? Or if anyone has any recommendations. Thanks for the advice on advance.

    I just bought a vice block and AR wrench, then punches and Allen wrenches and basic tools. I would definitely get the torque screw driver and a torque wrench.

    The kit looks like a good start if you don't have the punches

    Like most tools, you pay for quality. The punches take a beating. So a quality set is worth the extra expense. I think I paid $50 for the my Starrett set. For installing barrels, I like the Super Reaction Rod. But there's some similar reaction rods that work for less money. Don't for forget the roll pen starter punch. It can make you life much easier.

    +1 to what Ed said. Buy once cry once....and once you use a reaction rod you'll never want to use a vise block again
