Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

I use this one Bluntforce for those insane pins. But their are so many tools out their now to be counted to install. Damn back when I had guns ARs I bought xtra pins and springs cause they flew.
But that is a good one thank you.

I just do it inside a gallon ziplock bag with my trusty Old Timer pocketknife.

I just built a lower yesterday. One of my springs took flight, but since I had a relatively clear workbench and aimed at the wall I had very little trouble finding it.

Built two a couple weeks ago, first front pin went smooth. Due to low light I didn’t see the roll pin for the mag catch was in the channel of the front pin and had a spring/detent launch like it was planned at Cape Canaveral. Also managed to lose one out the back due to a retarded approach to buffer tube attachment (hint: screw the fucker in then worry about the rear pin spring installation).

Took it to a local builder from whom I had to buy two pin springs, one pin spring detent and a buffer retainer detent and spring. Had to stake my own castle nuts because there’s an epidemic of disbelief in the necessity of staking the fuckers. I’ve had one back off. Fuck that shit thank you very much.

Don’t need to buy special tools for a build every two years or two builds a year... but I might anyway.

That commie queer Karl Kasarda and that lardass Russell Phagen are completely FOS advising people to eliminate the buffer retainer.

I'm going to help my "brother's"( from another mother) son build his AR soon. He's 21 and a good guy, just no gunsmithing experience.
