    My shop just got a SIG 556 in. That thing is cheap looking, heavy, and long.

    Just came home with a RRA LPK.

    I guess the next thing to buy is a stock.

    On the trigger and hammer spring, does it matter what side the notch goes on?

    I cant install the selector. Even with the hammer down, I can see a tiny bit of the trigger assembly and the selector wont slide through easily.

    You guys are no help. I had to install the trigger, then the selector, then the hammer in that order. Everywhere else says the selector is put in last but mine wouldnt go in.

    Everything is put in. I just need a stock for the last 5 pieces. I installed the LPK with the following tools:

    Steak knife
    Meat cleaver
    Old cloth gardener's glove

    Ive been thinking about getting a RRA 2 stage trigger and these anti rotational pins. How much do you have to shoot before the normal pins wear down the receiver? Another type I saw had a hex screw on both pins, not just the one like below.

    Who's that from?

    I think I remember Chakup saying he could get a pretty good deal on the LMT's, might want to check with him before you buy :dunno:

    It's from my local shop.

    Dealer cost on Noveske stuff is like $10 off what Noveske sells for on their site. :rolf:
