I picked up an Accu-wedge today for my AR-15, I'm trying to install it but I'm having a little trouble. When I have it in place, its not allowing me to close my takedown pin or lower the upper fully into battery. Do I have to trim it or, or is there a different problem?

yea, you're supposed to trim it to fit.

Best way to use an accuwedge is to throw it in the trash. If anything, its bad for your gun

1) you may have to trim accu-wedge for it to fit

2) you are better off to just cut a piece of your foam ear-plug in half, and stick it underneath your rear take down pin if you experience a sloppy upper to lower fit

What kind of lower do you have?

My Noveske has a high shelf, so I had to trim it a lot to get the upper to fit.

I had to trim mine to fit, but now it does what I was hoping it would do. I like the suggestion of the foam earplug... hadn't considered that low-cost alternative.

I have a Roggio. I'm going to try trimming it now.

What he said, unless you like elongated holes.
