Hi!

Maybe I'm retarded :) , but I can't get this simple retainer plate to lineup with the safety yolk on my OOW receiver?? RSA FCG, Polish kit......This is killing me. WTF am I doing wrong?

I ran into the same problem w/my SEAKs. Fortunately RSA was kind enough to exchange my original retainer plates for new ones made specifically for the OOW receivers.

Ah crap! I remember reading that, but didn't understand at the time. NOW I DO. 33 YO and I think my mind is going! I just emailed Ken. Hopefully I can get the homey hook up!

Campy, Can you be more specific? I was going to take my dremmel to this. A few more hints and I should be good to go.

Just take the rat tail to the center notch until the rear hole lines up with the safety selector hole in the rcvr.

I dont use any pin retention doohickeys. 700rds and not one pin worked its way out. Someday I might put one on tho, maybe when I get the inking to bend up a paperclip.
