  1. Something really simple,clean your BCG throughly, get ALL the grease off it and oil it.
  2. http://www.hamuniverse.com/technicianquestionpool2014.html This site has study questions and A LOT OF INFORMATION
  3. Well if he'd listen to what you guys are saying he'd know what is going on by now. My guess is he put a hell of a radial twist in EVERYTHING, not just the upper. Hence the by the numbers of water boarding,WTF over
  4. Do you even know what a retention rod does? I would not call how you used that plastic piece in the magwell proper. They are used for LITE mantainence. Search for a couple of videos on using a retention rod while installing a barrel and nut. What part of the country are you from? You can buy a retention rod from Primary arms or Brownells for around $40. Depending where you are from I'd loan you one,I just don't want my tool stuck in the mail for 10 days
  5. They make a tool for what you did, it's called a reation rod.
  6. How about having a little more respect for our flag, it's not a table cloth.
  7. Number three is a pretty good rule. 3. Treat each other with respect. We have a zero tolerance for trolling, instigating and lying.
  8. Oil it up till it's dripping and break the rifle in. As for running a heavier buffer, I'm running a 10oz buffer from Clint. http://heavybuffers.com/ar10rifle.html
  9. Or, Buy your 80% lower from 5D Tactical, on sale for $119 + 10% Mil discount shipped.
  10. Your front facing picture really does make you look fat.
  11. Mine were never that sloppy, who's the barrel from? I haven't had to use the spacer either.
  12. If you're in no hurry and when Primary arms start having it's normal weekend sales you get some deals. I bought one similar for $119 Usually they all go on sale within a months time
  13. I honestly think you would enjoy building your own. There's no hurry here so why not take a week and read up? I think you will find it very gratifying in the end. As for mistakes,just speak up and ask questions it's not like you're spinning up raw steel.to make your components. You'll do fine.
  14. ^^^ What He Said^^^ Then there is always these if ya want the real deal
  15. It's really hard to beat the quality of Toolcraft. Right before Christmas Primary arms had them on sale, I bought 3 of them for future builds. Palameto state armory has them on sale about every other week.
  16. This isn't the review that I was looking for, but it's pretty good and done scientifically and pretty thorough. https://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/ar-15-flash-hider-shootout/
  17. The Surefire WarComp was ranked pretty high. I've been using them for about 5 years and it does everything I need it to do. Follow up shots are ridiculously simple, if you are into using their cans then you are all set as it is set up for suppressor use. Primary arms has them on sale for $110 https://www.surefire.com/warcomp-762-5-8-24.html
  18. I got my 5D here- https://www.ceratac.com/5D-Tactical-Router-Jig-Pro-p/5d-jig15.htm They are always $199 or less, if the site says out of stock call them they will have them . I have the Dewalt and retired it,I replaced it with the Rigid.for $100. The DeWalt can't touch the Rigid work wise.
  19. Coming from the one that knows everything you'd think.you would care to talk about the problems they were tasked to fix for the Government. I don't by their products for the cool factor. Fat jagoff
  20. Toolcraft is a solid product, but for just the bolt, they can't touch JP's offerings. Best AR-15 Upgrades with John Paul of JP Enterprises https://www.arbuildjunkie.com/best-ar-15-upgrades/
  21. What doesn't? They set the bar pretty high when they were asked to fix common failure points on a weapon platform for our military. https://jprifles.com/1.4.7_Bolt.php JP EnhancedBolt™ Fully compatible with Mil-spec .223 and standard .308 subcomponents Superior SAE 9310 material for superior resiliency and extended lifespan Additional material around cam pin hole to eliminate inherent weak point of bolt design Improved lug geometry for reduced wear and easier locking/unlocking JP Enhanced Ejector design mitigates case head extrusions and reduces brass smear JP Enhanced Extractor optimizes extraction function and eliminates multiple common ejection failures JP Enhanced Gas Rings reduce internal friction and wear of the bolt carrier while maintaining gas seal longer DLC coating offers super-high durability, lubricity and ease of cleaning
  22. As 98 recommended, here's my view. The Reaction Rod truly is the only way to go if you want to do it correctly and without stressing the upper. I will say this, you get what you pay for. I bought mine about 5 years ago and paid $150 if memory serves me correctly I didn't buy it directly from Geissele. They want $199.00
  23. If you want one of the best bolts made buy a JP bolt.
