FMJunkie,

I just build my 1st lower also, in fact, on the same lower as you, except I used a RRA LPK

Feels good, doesn't it [:D]

FMJunkie: You did good! I built an Oly Arms lower a few years back. I lost one of the push-pin detents. Those push-pins are such a pain to install. The fire control stuff was pretty easy to install. Now for the proof of the pudding, to go out and shoot it. Make sure you put something like 2-3 rounds in the mag for the first try; my buddy built lower also, he forgot to put that itty-bitty spring in the disconnector, well anyways, it went rata-tat-tat and scarced the piss out of everybody around him. It emptied the whole 20 round mag in 10 seconds, but in the mean time he had to hold on to it.

Have you turned it upside down yet to see if anything falls-out [:)]?z

Here is a quick test to see if the trigger group functions properly.
Cock the hammer, then pull the trigger (don't let the hammer slam into the lower). WITHOUT releasing the trigger recock the hammer and then WITHOUT releasing the trigger smack the top of the cocked hammer with the palm of your hand.
If it does not release then your lower passes this function test and will probably not "go auto". If the hammer releases with your finger still on the trigger then you have some "problems".

Glad you enjoyed the process. BTW, if you still want to feel like less of a man, then, by all means get married!

I still have my stripped lower.  Me and VA-gunnut didn't build it up because I am waiting to get a kit.  I only have to get about 140 more dollars, before I can buy a kit.

How did you keep from getting all that arm hair in the way, or becoming tangled in the springs?!

Congrats on the build. Looks awesome. I'll probably wait until I get an AR to start thinking about building one. I plan on buying a NIB Bushy, so my second AR will probably be a built AR. Looks like a nice build great job.

Now just one small question why aren't there any "labels" next to the selector switch? Just the lower or what?
