    Well. I kind of built this one. Put the top on and put those two pins in. I used super glue on the pins, don't want them coming out. That would suck..

    Building/assembling. Like when my bud corrected me when I called a cars power plant a "motor". He said its called an "engine" when internal combustion or steam is involved, a "motor" uses electricity. So I say to u guys the same as I said to him, "You know what the F@*# I mean!" Just yankin yer chain!

    I approached my several AR builds the same way. I assure you I 'built' my ARs.
    I assure you that just as I have the knowledge and ability to fell trees, plane lumber, and make nails, I have the ability to mold plastic, turn barrels and drill holes in frames I've cast. I have just found that some other people do it a little faster, a little better and a little more economically than I so I chose to use their parts and products.

    To use your house analogy, an AR is like assembling a pre-fab home where you simply attach the pre-made pieces to each other, building a house from a pile of lumber is building. The 1911 was designed when hand fitting of parts was the norm, for example it is rare that you can install an aftermarket safety without fitting it to your particular 1911. Hand lapping the slide to frame fit is also allowed because many 1911 parts are made oversized to allow hand fitting to precision tolerances, or you can tighten up the fit by peening the rails and such. Even the major parts advertised as "drop in" have a caveat in the instructions saying fitting may be required.

    The AR15, however, was designed by a guy who made use of the latest "space age" materials and manufacturing practices, allowing for very tight tolerances and universal fit of parts with little to no hand fitting required. AR15 safeties just drop in with no fitting required unless something is majorly out of whack. Can't say as I recall a single AR part ever advertised that it was oversized for hand fitting. Yes, you can smooth out tool marks and such if ya want to, but 99% of the time that part would work fine as is. And the anodizing on the AL parts should not be messed with as it imparts surface hardness and reduces wear. AR15 disconnectors are kinda finicky, but that is an issue with poor manufacturing, not a requirement to fit to an individual rifle.
