Yea. He should be using a rubber hammer. He has other vides where he takes it into a shop and they assemble the upper with a real gunsmith, that one shows head space and timing and gas block assembly. Dont be afraid to mar the finish. You can always duracoat it.

I agree with just about everything in this video. I also know I could never post videos on Youtube. A couple of guys are so pissed off about his opinion of proper vertical foregrip placement...even though he states that the grip being closer to the mag well has advantages in CQB. They're tripping about his weapon being loaded too.
Alot of solid points in that article. Even tho most people just buy these guns for recreation, we also have it in our mind to use it as a self-defense weapon. As such we should be seeking out the best gear for the cheapest prices. Compromises can be made in certain areas but it is a fine line.
In my own little ar world I have a parts ranking checklist of most important (no compromise on quality) to least important (compromises can be made)
