Followed the guide on here and everything was pretty easy EXCEPT the freaking takedown springs. The writer of the guide acted like everything went in all easy like, well either i'm stupid or something but I had a bitch of a time getting them in. For the front I had to use a piece of paper to keep the detent down and have enough room to slide the takedown pin in. And the rear was a huge pain in the pass. My friend and I ended up using my drivers license to keep the spring in while threading the buttstock and then letting go of the drivers license as we pushed the piece on the buttstock that keeps the spring in(I dont know the name). There has to be an easier way to do this, what was I missing?

Anyways here's the specs:
Stag lower
Del-ton 16" kit, a2 upper, mostly stock stuff.

Future plans are VFG, IDF sling and maybe a light(KISS)

Pics are here:

Now go shoot it, break it in and sight it in and let us know the results.

There's nothing quite like the butterflies-in-the-stomach feeling as you squeeze the trigger on a live round for the very first time in a gun that you built.

Good job Brother.

Looks good!!

With all of those future additions you mentioned (VFG, IDF Sling, Light) I wouldn't call it a KISS rifle. Right now it's a KISS rifle, but not after all of those additions.  

Either way, it's awesome the way it is now, and it will still be awesome with the additions you mentioned.
