Nice build. What was wrong with the first lower?

it’s kinda funny. Every lower, or AR as a matter of fact has had a problem. my stag had huge ass burr in the chamber and they ended up replacing the upper for me....

On to your question:

The front takedown pin holes on the lower were, i guess, miss aligned. Im not talking a few thou, but like they were so off the when you would actually lock the gun up, it would bind as all hell. i actually shot the old lower with my stag upper last winter when it was cold and physically took 3 people to separate the lower from the upper, albeit this was w/out tools, but it was awful

Needless to say, armalite did their job and had no problems getting a new lower from them.

edit: numerous typos

OK

as promised..... range report

took the gun out to the range this morning as it was warmer than yesterday... still cold though

gun functioned well, besides a few FTF, which i assume are because of my shitty 20rnd mag (knowing my luck, i prob fecked up the gas system)

regardless of that, accuracy was phenominal. couldnt be more pleased



as to the FTF or possible shortstroking(FML) ill just have to figure it out
