This was my first build, it was easier than I thought. I did launch a detent across the room, but I found it.

Yup. Need a nice upper for that lower.

I'm just curious, why would you lay your new lower in the gravel?

I made this little tool to keep from launching detent across the room. Works very well

looks like you've got a good start there. you can buy a 1/4" clevis pin at home depot or something like that for less than a buck, it is the same principle as the previously mentioned tool. be sure to post pics when you get it all finished

Looks good. Be sure to post an updated picture when you get in your upper.

Just for you saying that, I went outside and smashed a kitten with the buttstock of my rifle.

Now fry that baby up in a wok and we'll have some Chinese food...

I wouldn't lay any of my firearms in the gravel...not even my POS Automag II. I guess I am the only one that is anal about my weapons. To each his own.

Lemme guess, that was the front pivot detent that flew, yeah they suck. I used a razor blade to hold the spring/detent flush with the receiver, and this allowed enough room for the pin to slide in.
