The container on the right is the trigger group;

The container on the left is the rest of the pins, springs, levers, etc. for the lower.

Got it...  so basically everything for the lower.

Thanks

No hammer.

Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined...The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun."~Patrick Henry

For the Patriots of this country, the Constitution is second only to the Bible for most. For those who love this country, but do not share my personal beliefs, it is their Bible. To them nothing comes before the Constitution of these United States of America. For this we are all labeled potential terrorists. ~ Dean Garrison

I believe that is what your furry little friend was referring to.

They look so good.  I'm just into experimenting right now and also don't quite have the coin for a Bishop bolt.   When I win the next lottery.

Oh Look!   Overnight, the AR-15 Lower-Assembly-Fairy has put the lower together.  (Yes, I had a spare hammer.)      And "the fairy" had a little trouble remembering to assemble the magazine release before the bolt hold-open last night.

So far it's just a standard AR build.   Though I trim a couple of coils out of the takedown pin retention springs and I'll replace those takedown pins with quick release types.

Now waiting on the side charging upper.   And I'm at the point of committment.  Ordering the barrel.  .458 Socom?  Or do I cave and get .300BO?  Or a 6.x something or other?  Please don't push me.







for reference these are the modified take down pins.

And looky what showed up today.    My side charger. 







Still just a "could-be-caliber-AR" except I ordered the .458 barrel and bolt from Tromix (sorry Dianne).  They were after all the inventors, or at least the early instigators.  Plus I ordered the barrel+bolt combination.

I'm committed now to seeing this .458s thing through.

We don’t sell a side charger anyway. Yes Tromix made the first ones, but don’t discount other manufacturers either. There are other good ones out there.
