The bolt stop plunger will go in the hole just barely and then it's stuck and I have to pull it out with pliers. Has anybody ever had this problem and what do I do about it?Should I try to polish the plunger or just order a new one? What if it's the lower? Thanks

Make sure your buffer tube isnt too tight. Someone else can give you the dimensions for the hole and the plunger and you can mic them to find which one is out of spec. If it is the lower I would just polish the plunger until it fits.

It's the bolt catch not the buffer detent pin. Thanks for the reply, though.

I just had the same "issue" with the bolt catch itself. Polish it up with fine grit sandpaper til it fits smooth. Alway mod the cheap part.

Also make sure the roll pin slides easily through the hole in the bolt catch.

what brand of LPK are you using? I had the same problem, and it resulted in my bolt catch being ruined due to the bolt overriding it and chewing it up really badly.

fortunately, these parts can be ordered very cheaply from bushmaster, i'm just glad it didn't mess up my bolt.
