I didn’t show the details of my AR build. I only had to complete the lower with this kit, the upper was already assembled.
First, I went on-line and printed out this parts list from AR-15.com
I opened the bag of loose parts.
I put the parts list inside a cardboard tray that previously held canned sodas. Then I placed the appropriate part on top of the picture on the diagram, that way I was sure what each part actually was. Those little springs, indents, and pins look awfully similar sometimes. The only trouble I had with assembly was putting the pivot pin indent where it belonged. As I was pressing it down on the spring, it slipped and went flying across the room! Fortunately I had another pin in another kit so I was able to use that pin instead. I looked on-line and you can buy a package of 10 of those indents and springs for just $8, so that will be in my next Amazon order!
Other than that, assembly went smooth as silk, so now my new AR is ready for action! Keep prepping everyone!
