Hi,

I was installing the front takedown detent/spring tonight. For whatever reason i put in the detent first and cannot get it out. Any idea??

My lower is an aero precision .308 lower, no vent hole either. i don't know that to do

If you cannot get it out any other way, make you a simple electromagnet that'll fit the drilled hole to get it out.

You've tried banging it out?  Careful of the pin ears.

Cut your spring, put a new detent on top of that, and forget about it.  Not a big deal.

Take a small dril bit that will go up inside the spring and twist it in place by hand until you catch an edge and can pul it out or make a tiny hook with a wire and run it in there.
