    Did you measure your magwells pocket to verify the magwell wasn’t out of spec?

    The customer said that magpul dropped free before.

    The "smith" disagreed, so I'm not sure who's right and who's wrong. Was just browsing so i dont know the details.

    I bought 6 rifle kits on sale at one time. Got quite good at putting them together. Then they all fell off the boat at once. Now I just buy them as I find good deals on parts and sections. Still fall off the boat one by one now though. I guess my feet are too big!

    Welcome to the addiction. It’s fun. Legos for men. I’m only on 5 so far but the need to build more is always there calling

    Takes about 20 minutes to assemble a lower. Yes, the initial investment in tools bumps that price up a bit, but tools are a one time expense. Have fun, enjoy.

    I'm just working on it when the mood strikes. A couple steps at a time. Might be another week before I even look at it again. Got a few more parts installed the other day. Mag release, bolt catch, pivot pin. IMG_2377.JPG
