    As usual the pictures suck, but you've all seen an AR before.

    Got a few things planned for it and I'll take pictures at every stage a long the way.
    But for now, I need to focus getting some sights on it and some ammunition so I can actually shoot it.
     
  2. Nice rifle. Congrats.

    Take the bolt carrier out. On the top of it there is the gas key. It's held on with 2 cap screws that are set into it. Take a pic of that area.

    Need diagram to show what you want me to take a picture of, haha. Srsly, this is my first AR.
    I can operate one, I have no problem with that... but I'm clueless when it comes to terms of parts.

    do you know what the take down pins are? the little pins at the front and back of the receiver that attaches the upper and lower.

    put the rear one out (it will lock into place, dont worry about it falling out) and the upper should hinge forward.

    from there, pull the charging handle back a little so it releases the bolt carrier, and pull the whole assembly out.

    from there, you'll see two screws at the top of the carrier. can you take a clear pic of those please :x:

  24. He wants to see if S&W is staking the screws properly to prevent them from backing out.
