Hey all,

I'm sure I could just guess things together...there's not that many parts. However, I don't wanna get screwed with the "I shoulda put in the mag release *before* the bolt catch" scenario (made that up, BTW). Is there a step-by-step somewhere?

Thanks,
BoB

I can't find the original thread by Homo_Erectus right now, hope this helps.

EDIT: My bad, this is uppers, too quick on the draw.

... A few more tips

- use roll pin punches
- mask off the receiver when installing the mag catch roll pin to prevent scratches
- lightly grease components prior to assembly
- wear eye protection

Install the springs inside a clear plastic bag, those things tend to go ballistic! Do you know how hard it is to find detent pins and springs in the carpet on the other side of the room? I do...
