  1. So good news, pushed the stuck detent all the way in with a small allen wrench then taped the detent spring to a 2x4, measured with my new detent how much to cut off the spring then cut it with a dremel (best route by far, needed to have the spring taped down tho). Started conservatively so had to cut off a few extra coils but finally got it to the correct length (pretty much flush with the reciever) and worked like a charm with the new detent and takedown pin! Thanks again everyone!!!
  2. Thanks everyone!! I'm waiting on so parts to come in and need to grab some more WD40 to try a few last ditch efforts but will update you with how things end up working out. COBrien, I'm probably 2 or so months away from finishing my build (buying parts as the extra money comes in) but will let you know how the completed rifle works once completed. Thanks again everyone!!
  3. Yeah I was worried about that, I don't think I'm at that point yet but I very well may need to follow your steps as I don't think my slight OCD will allow me to leave it in there. I will continue working on it, trying the WD40 and compressed air but may be following up with you for help of that's okay. Thanks for your advice / offer!
  4. Did a stupid mistake on my build and googled LR-308 forums and this was the first one. Put the front breakdown detent in before the spring and got it stuck...
  5. Oh and please ignore the cheap red dot site, put that on for just for fun and stock adjustments, coming off once build is complete.
  6. http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g245/andykappa515/Mobile Uploads/20200111_235545_zpsyacpch5g.jpg Not sure if this picture/link will work but here's my photo, no vent hole :(. A friend had mentioned cutting the spring and getting a new detent but was hoping to avoid that (but oh well).
  7. Put front takedown detent in before spring, and my dumbass self ramroded it down with the spring, so it is hardcore stuck in there now. Tried number mallet on buttstock and hitting front of lower receiver on rubber mallet but it's really in there... Any ideas on how to get it out or solutions?
