I agree with the assessment. Not for the uninitiated.

I would probably not have tackled my own (M117) if I hadn't had the opportunity to help out and get some hands on experience at the local shop. The shop owner was right in the middle of an M119 chain, when I stopped by, next thing I knew, I was hands on helping out (wifey was wondering why I was late from work ). Not sure I would want to tackle an M119 at home by myself and I'm not afraid to tackle many jobs.
