noticed a small gap between the grip and lower, tightened it down after taking pics.

while installing the trigger and hammer, i dried fired a few times, felt heavy, so did the 15 min practical trigger job, cut one leg of the hammer spring down to 3/8" and bent the trigger spring legs to 20' angle. a bit lighter and crisp, but hammer still hits hard. really happy with the trigger


waiting for a holiday sale for a complete upper, looking at spending $400-450, top of the list are PSA or Delton mid/dissy w/ MOE handguards.


oh, while getting the bolt release pin in, got a few tiny scratches on the receiver, what kind of touch up can i use?
and i don't have a 1/16" hex key, so couldnt install the set screw on the MOE trigger guard, any other way to install it?

You'll have a hard time finding a new complete upper for less than $399.

I have the magpul trigger guard as well and tossed that little screw out. if you have the flat trigger guard that came with your parts kit take the pin and prings out and use a paper clip to drill the required hole in the magpul guard and put the pin and spring in it you have a drop down trigger guard like stock with the beauty of a magpul.

That or go get a gunsmith screw driver set or some allen keys and call it a day.

You're building a $600-700 rifle and can't afford a $0.69 allen wrench?
Shocking! I usually look for any excuse possible to buy new tools!!!

i've never had any need for an 1/16 hex, i do have a few larger sized hex wrenches, just don't have an 1/16 one. while researching how to build a lower, none of the how to's i read/watched mentioned one. i just have some basic tools in the garage, hammer, a few wrenches, screwdrivers, drill bit set.

it's no big deal, its fairly secure as is.(ty balloo for the offer). just wanted to know if there was any alternate ways to install it. i may just order a spring and buffer when i order the upper. (ty barman for suggestion)

IM me your address and I will send you one. I have a couple of extras from buying various sets. I will drop it in an envelope and mail it to you. It's the least a Texan can do for another Texan.
