    Came with a roll pin and a tiny threaded rod.

    Should I install now or wait until I get my LPK and install trigger first? :dunno:
     
  2. I tiny threaded rod? That's unusual. I'm guessing it's not a standard trigger guard? You don't have to wait for the LPK, the trigger drops in from the top and the trigger guard won't interfere with anything.

    Magpul "enhanced" TG.

    Roll pin for rear, threaded rod for front. It came with instructions I just didn't know if I should wait to do it or do it now. :)

    Magpul.com along with the ASAP sling mount. The MOE stock is back-ordered though so I didn't get that yet.

    I bought three dang sets of XS sights that came with non-marring punches. Do you think I can find any of them? NO. I think they're in storage since we're packing stuff for moving right now. :o

    Meanwhile, I have four sets of allen wrenches and none of any of them are small enough to turn the little hex-head screw. :hsd:

    I ordered black, mil-spec.
    I saw they had OD in stock. Or green. Can't remember. Didn't want that. Wanted black.

    No I should get one. I wound up using an old dog bone which got it 90% of the way in but now the bone won't fit on the pin and I don't want to hit it anymore and risk whacking the lower with the hammer. :rofl:

    You'd think so. I have another set in storage I'll try; else I'll visit the armory on base one of these days and see if they have one I can use for 10 seconds. :p

    put a few layers of electrical tape on the hammer, or you could always put a few layers of electrical tape on both ends of a vice grip and squeeze it that way

    and that allen should be really standard. if i wasn't playing gta right now i'd go see what size it is...

    Electrical tape is in storage. Probably in a tupperware adjacent to the last wrench set. :o

    What kind of gloves are we talking? I just use my Mechanix gloves. Even wear them in warmer than 60 or so sometimes.

    where are you shooting?
