So, for my 601 lower, I'm going to get the lower parts kit in the next few days. The selector will have a notch in it. I'm curious as to whether anyone has successfully covered it up. I'm thinking JB weld and some gray paint as a temporary fix, since I lack the funds to buy a different selector. I'm also thinking of trying to drill a shallow hole in the middle of the selector and takedown pin to replicate the 601 pins. I think I'm a bit too inexperienced and cowardly to attempt this though. I'm just curious as to what you guys do to fake period correct parts on the cheap! Thanks for your advice.

from personal experience, those lower parts so VERY heat treated. i tried using a carbide drill bit on a buddy's drill press and couldn't make a dent. on the safety, there's plenty of places that sell them without the notch for about $9 or $10, just buy it. you'll be much happier. on the small parts, get them from heatnbeat. he does a great job at a fair price.

Cool. I'll just install the thing after doing the naval jelly trick for now. Later on I can swap out parts when I have more money.
