I was refinishing my AR today and the finish turned out great....but i am short a few parts.

A Front sight post pin and a buffer retaining pin spring (not the buffer spring. the one that keeps the buffer in place)

I can't find them anywhere!

Went to brownells website to get .50 worth of parts but forgot they wan 8.50 in shipping.

where can i find these cheap parts and not get gouged for shipping?

thanks,
t955i

DPMS. No shipping on small parts orders

I'm sure one of the guys that keep enough spare parts on hand to build 10 AR's will chime in and be willing to help you out. If I had spare parts I would send them to you for nothing but I am not one of those guys with impressive spare parts boxes.

$8.50 for shipping? Call them up and have them ship it first class mail, it should only be $3-4...

DSGARMS has a lot of individual parts for sale. I've always purchased other, bigger ticket items along with parts, so I don't know about the shipping issue. They're an INDUSTRY "partner" so I'm sure they would gouge you like Brownells.

Triumph, I keep plenty of spare parts onhand for this exact type of scenario. If you can't find a source who has them in stock (or who doesn't try to bone you on shipping) please e-mail or IM me.

I'll gladly donate the parts to help out a fellow AR freak. Just let me know if I can help.

It's absolutely no bother at all. I mean it

I do it to assuage my guilt for being a dickhead to the Colt bashers

You don't have that many parts.

Well, I don't feel that guilty

A couple of springs every month and maybe an old follower or something is more than enough to clear my conscience.

See I told you someone would be willing to help out
Link Posted: 8/26/2005 10:38:42 PM EDT
did you buy it as a kit?


if so i would contact who you got it from stating your dis-satisfaction with it since it was missing parts and request for replacements to be shipped out to you
