if you 'need' a new one, try ebay.

The $.25 solution. Just go to the auto parts or hardware store and get a 5/8 x 1/2 x 1/16 o-ring and install it like this. Works just fine.

Personally I like the o-ring solution better than the accuwedge. The o-ring has just enough give so popping the takedown pin isn't a major hassle.

Not to jump on your thread gunsmith dude...
About how long do the O-rings last before they dry rot or need replacing?

ingenious!

Thanks for the suggestion..

Did u guys put two on?
One on each end of the receivers?

The o-rings last months. At $.25 each what's the difference how long they last. If it cracks, breaks or develops memory just throw it away and install a new one.

I only use them on the front lug.
