WTF? Coathangers? In my lower?

That is NOT how you modify it to go full auto.....
Link Posted: 9/7/2010 3:09:16 PM EDT
Your definately gonna have to file down the firing pin to get it to function now!

See if there is a pin within a pin. I just had that happen with a Stag LPK. I didn't even notice until the outer pin mushroomed out that there was another inside it.

A little work with needle nose vice grips and a new roll pin and you'll be back in business.

Maybe it's the flash but all my roll pins are black.

Were you using a flatnose punch or channel lock pliers? I usually start with a roll pin starter punch and finish with the channel locks.

Remind me not to buy a DPMS LPK.

Seriously tho , it looks like there is a crack in the lower there also!

I built a lower with one once, it was crap. Several parts seemed to be out of spec.

Link Posted: 9/7/2010 3:18:25 PM EDT
Ghetto, I are disappoint. I've got a couple extra pins (i think) if you need one.

Tap it in not beat it in
Link Posted: 9/7/2010 3:31:52 PM EDT
"Oh snap!" seems appropriate.
Link Posted: 9/7/2010 3:32:21 PM EDT
is it a fail because the bent roll pin or the fact that it's a spike?
Link Posted: 9/7/2010 3:32:36 PM EDT
Meh.

It's not like it was a good lower or anything.

There does appear to be a crack.

Get a band saw and cut it in three pieces. Call Tom and complain. Post results.

How the hell'd you manage that?
Link Posted: 9/7/2010 3:39:44 PM EDT
they make roll pin punch sets to prevent that. There is even a nifty one specifically for the bolt catch.

No shit. Roll pins are cheap.


This is the worst mistake you've made?

No, but that is what happens when you go full retard...

just yank it out and start over
Link Posted: 9/7/2010 3:44:38 PM EDT
Nothing for it now except to chop the lower into 5 pieces and start over.

That's not an appearance of a crack....It IS one.

Link Posted: 9/7/2010 3:46:18 PM EDT
Just color it with a sharpie, no one will notice.
Link Posted: 9/7/2010 3:47:25 PM EDT
why the fuck does this pin seem to kick people's asses so badly???

For now, just take your punch and drive it back out, and then go buy a good LPK (DD, RRA, etc) and build it properly.

What I do with these is I cover the left side of the lower with duct tape, and then start the pin into the hole by gingerly tapping it with a hammer, which is sliding across the duct tape. Then I lay a punch along the side of the lower and carefully tap the pin in until it's almost to the cutout ofr the bolt catch.

It really helps to have someone holding things in alignment while you WATCH where you are hammering.

Anyway, I then have my helper hold the bolt catch in position and continue tapping the roll pin down until the bolt catch is binding lightly. At this point I wiggle the bolt catch a bit until the roll pin "finds" the hole in the bolt catch. At this point continue tapping the roll pin the rest of the way in...

Now if you are a retard like me and forget the plunger and spring the first time you will be happy to know the pin will tap right back out from the other direction!

Just like that piece of man meat in your pants - the rod needs to be lubed before you try to cram it in the hole!! Remember that. ( it is a lesson I learned the hard way - http://www.ar15.com/archive/topic.html?b=3&f=4&t=486015)

Lol! Don't worry you can just JB weld that ear back on.
Link Posted: 9/7/2010 3:58:11 PM EDT
Doesn't anybody besides me use a set of tape-covered vice grips to put roll pins in? Soooo much easier and there's no chance of cracking your lower that way.... and then getting mad b/c there's a crack.... and then cutting up the lower b/c it cracked and trying to send it back for a refund.
Link Posted: 9/7/2010 4:03:48 PM EDT
Holy hell, the lower is cracked!

This is like the 4th or 5th lower that I've built. Never been a problem before.

+1, I install mine with tape covered channel locks. The trigger guard pin too.
