    Anyone in the Molalla/Silverton area that wants to help a newbie with his first AR15 lower build?

    Thanks...

    When you install the springs, install them inside a cardboard box so when you inevitably have one flip out, it's only got one way out and you're blocking most of it.

    youtube it. I converted a Saiga 12 with a video How-to. Just drink some beers, take you time and enjoy it! When prices settle down on I plan on building an AR to keep my Colt company. :D

    I used youtube to build my first lower in January. It all went right together. I second the springs in a box though. I shot a couple around the room. Luckily I was able to find them quickly.

    Do yourself a favor and pick up a clevis pin from lowes or home depot. It's very slick to use for the the pivot pin spring. It costs a little over a buck, then you can use your plastic bags for your lunch.:thumbup:
