Today I received by priority mail, 1 LPK and 1 A2 buttstock kit for my AR57 build. I ordered one on 5/13 and the other on 5/14 and both arrived today. One more piece to go.

Good Job to Rainier Arms.

Went to Wild Bill's today and picked up a new MMG, rifle is functionally complete.

MMG, going to head down to Wild Bill's to see if they have any. Magazines will be on order, but I can shot single shot for the time being.

Good luck with that single shot w/o mag idea, the only way that I could get the bolt to engage a round on my AR-57 was to have it strip it from the mag and then remove the mag.

This was for a single shot exercise at a Vicker's class I just took.

Does the stock bolt release work on yours? I can't seem to get the bolt to stay open.

My AR57 doesn't hold the bolt open either. I don't think it's supposed to. It didn't bother me enough to ask anyone so I'm not sure I'm 100% correct- I'm just saying that if it makes you feel better, my AR57 doesn't have a bolt catch either.

The bolt hold open isn't a feature on the AR-57, so nothing for the bolt release to catch.
