I just bought a RRA lower for a custom .22 upper I recently purchased. This is probably a dumb question, but, how in the heck to I remove the main pin (up near the mag well) to mount the upper to it. My pin in my Colt comes out with a flat screw driver. This one in my RRA seems like I would need to forcefully knock it out with a punch. What is the trick or tool I need? Let me know. Thank you in advance.

The forward pivot pin pushes out (left to right) with your fingers or a small push from a blunt object to get it started. It's retained in the receiver by a spring loaded detent hidden inside a drilled passage along the right side of the mag well.

The rear takedown pin removes the same way.

I'll give it a try and let you know what happens. Thanks for the quick reply.

I got it...Thank you very much. I didn't want to start pounding on things before I knew it was OK. Thanks again.

OK. Good luck with your new rifle. Suggest you get a copy of the government TM (Technical Manual) for the M16. It's nearly identical to a semi-auto AR. You can download it from the net. Try biggerhammer.net.
