I recently built my first ar without any problems, except for the trigger guard. It appears to be too long, and the built in detent won't pop into place in the receiver when I have the trigger guard roll pin punched in. The trigger guard roll pin took a lot of effort to install, much more than any other pins I had to install. Any quick solutions? Is my best bet to contact who I got the lower parts kit from and ask him to send me a new trigger guard?

You should have installed the roll pin with the trigger guard locked into the detent. That would have told you immediately if the guard was too long.

I won't actually have access to measurements for a couple days. I'm in Mukilteo within 5 minutes of Sam's Gun Club, but am currently at college, but go home every couple weeks.

I tried both installing the trigger guard with the detent locked in place and without. With it locked in place, it would take a great deal of force to get the roll pin in, is this normal?
