imschur Posted July 15, 2011 Report Share Posted July 15, 2011 I thought it might be interesting to see how we each handle the most frustrating AR-15 Tasks. I decided the bolt catch roll pin would be a good place to start.Tools1. Bolt Catch Roll Pin Punch2. 1" Nylon/Brass Hammer3. 1" Masking TapeI cover the lower with tape. I then take a piece of tape and roll the tape around 3/4 of the roll pin with the rest rollled to the punch. Keeping it all as as straight as possible. This holds the roll pin securely while driving it in with the hammer. The pin has no trouble sliding out of the tape as it's driven deeper into position.Alternatively I have done the same process with heat shrink tubing with good success.Ill post a few pictures next time I do a build.I also have an idea for a tool to simplify the process. Sadly the milling machine at the office is dead and wont be repaired so I need to work with an outside machine shop. Maybe one day i will get it done and sell the idea to BrownellsSo how do you guys get it done? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
