So pics as promised...
The lower with the first step and third step - Mag release and hinge pin - installed. Step 2 is the bolt catch, is just in place..
Step two in process... you cant see it but the roll pin that holds in the bolt catch is still stuck.
Getting started on the trigger group..
Ok lower assembled..still need a bunch of parts, like a buffer tube kit and stock ( so many to choose from), maybe a new pistol grip, I havent found one I like yet and then its on to the upper -Med wieght barrel, free float rail, piston system etc..God this is addicting..
I still am not super happy with how either of the roll pins went in (they just look "hackish"). Pulling them in the future will be interesting. I would be interested in a rework of some kind..war gaming in my head what that would look like (?)
