I have jewel 2 stage trigger in my AR. Works fine. I read somewhere that you should put a "cushion" between the hammer and the bolt release to soften the blow of the hammer and reduce wear on the lower. Is this true?

Also, if yall haven't tried a bolt release extension bar you should, one touch from your trigger finger and you're ready to go. Pretty cool accessory.

Only if you are snapping it with the upper removed - NOT a good idea. The hammer crashes into the lower front wall and the bolt stop. I accidentally did this once and the tab on the bolt stop cracked off. If you are dry firing with the upper on it won't hurt anything, and I would never put any cushion in there lest I forget it.

Brownells sells a delrin drop block to protect the bolt release and back of the mag well when doing trigger work.
product number is 080-953-000 price is $24.64

Put your left thumb there. That will greatly reduce the # of times you will be tempted to drop the hammer without an upper.
