    So I'm almost done with the LPK installation.

    Only thing I have left to do is the bolt release.

    However, the spring for the bolt release has a larger base if that makes sense. Like the whole spring isn't all one size :dunno:

    I've looked over that and my bolt release spring has this weird extra base portion...

    Here is a pic

    As you can see on the right side it is larger then the left side.

    The only thing I can think of is it is the disconnector spring however I recal trying them both and only the one I installed in the disconnector would work not the spring pictured above...

    Any ideas?

    Look in the other picture in that thread on barfcom and you'll see it's the disconnector spring.

    What's the problem?

    Don't worry, all LPKs are made exactly the same so it's probably your fault. :o

    No problem now but getting the bolt catch installed I can't get it started :o

    I'm also really anal about protecting the lower from scratches :hs:

    I usually install the roll pin until it just meets the edge of the bolt catch opening. Then I'll insert the bolt catch and use a pair of pliers to squeeze the roll pin in. A little bit of adjustment of the bolt catch may be necessary to get the hole in the bolt catch and the roll pin to line up.

    I've never been worried about scratches on my firearms. They are tools.

    I just taped up my hammer with electrical tape and got it started then got it to catch a little :coold: It's in now :coold:

    Just need to go over to my fiancee's and borrow her dad's punches to finish this up!

    I know I'm so stoked.

    I guess I really shouldn't worry about the minor scratches it adds character :hsd:

    You'll learn to get over the scratches. Your gun is supposed to have scratches because it's supposed to be used. FUCK pretty safe queen guns.

    Yes we know, you and your crayons. :mamoru:

    It's a weapon, not a show piece. Seriously... get over it. Your weapon will get dinged, scratched, scraped, and bumped into things if you go about learning to use even a fraction of its potential and learning yours along with it.

    If you want a show piece, buy something worthy of being looked at more often than it is shot.
