Out of the box I noticed when shotgunning it open there seemed to be alot of wobble between the upper and lower at the front pivot pin. When closed it seemed to have the normal AR type shifting between upper and lower.

Also the hammer spring was orange. Almost like a powdered coating of orange on the spring.

Anyone else have similiar experiences with their 5.45 AR?

my 5.45 spring was orange too. it's a pretty stout spring for setting off those hard milsurp primers.


as far as the loose fit goes, i can't really offer an opinion without knowing the manufacturer of your rifle.

I think the spring was painted a different color so to mark it as a heavy spring. Should not affect it at all. My upper fits great but I have it on a S&W M&P lower.

Had no problems at all with my m&p15r. Actully pumped because my brother gave me a .223 5rd mag and it cycled just fine with that few rounds. When you put in the 5th rnd, the rnd tilts to the side, but the other 4 are GTG. Going to do some shooting with it tomorrow to see if I have any feed problems.
