Think of it as a challenge. If you did put it together yourself, you'd take all the more pride in it
I'm all for knowing your weapons inside and out and working on them yourself. I do that for my 10/22s. But, as noted above, the parts kits will most likely be for full auto and getting the proper fitment into a semi receiver (if you can get one) will probably involve much more work than simply assembling parts. If you've got a good set of machining tools and equipment and a good eye on what needs to be shaved/re-shaped by so many mils at such and such angles, good luck to you. As for me, I don't have the tools or the knowledge and am not willing to pay large dollars for additional parts I screw up. (The 10/22s aren't quite as expensive .)

(I'm saving up for an OH Ord 1918A3 myself . They are only about 40 minutes away from me. It's #2 on my all time "Get This" list and I don't think I'll ever get #1, an HK PSG1.)
