I ordered the following stuff:

Romy Kit from Tapco w/ G2 trigger and new shepard spring 125.00

US Slant Brake and a US gas piston from Brownells 35.00

Rivet kit from the boards here 7.00

and a Receiver, I think its A DCI? 58.00

Total 225.00 with about 13 dollars shipping on top

From my count I'll have 6 US parts. Based on all that is there anything I'm forgetting???

Did the rivet kit include e-clips? and a countersunk rivet to attach the piston?

Shit, I dont know...

www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=7&f=123&t=295511

Obviously I got the STD. Fxd. stock kit But I bought 4 kits because if this goes well, the I plan on building more.

The same guy has the e-clips available separately. They are listed in the same ad. $3.00 for six when sold separately, or .20 ea with rivet purchase. You need two per rifle.

I've read that some guys here use a finishing nail to attach the piston. You just need to put something there so it doesnt unscrew itself.

Hardware shouldnt be a problem. I've got a pretty good rep. with ACE hardware and I havent come across anythign I couldnt get there...pins nuts and bolts wise that is.

Hell one of the guys who works there builds AK's too

maybe I am just retarded but why are you buying the US made slant break, i thought it came with the romy kit. You only need 5 parts if you are not replacing the break (6 if you are). Save the 15 bucks and just use the rommy one. I just checked out the parts kit at tapco and it looks like a rommy slant brake is included. So counting the G2 TCG (3 Parts), reciever (1 part), and piston (1 part) you got all 5 needed parts.

Well the way I understood it was that regardless of how many us parts you have you can only have a max of 10 import parts.

Thats why I went with the us brake

I understand it now. You are right. If you have a muzzle brake or any other muzzle adapter you will then need 6 USA parts. That helps clarify things with me and my future build. Thanks
