If you have a SIG 556,I highly recommend the Swiss rcvr takedown pin.You
can seperate the upper and lowers with no tools(after a little practice)

Pushing the head of the pin causes the claws to retract

This little gizmo is pricey at about $35---there are some US versions of
this pin but I have heard mixed reviews--price diff is $5,so you be the
judge.It also made a TIGHTER fit between my upper and lower then the
original SIG pin did. FWIW!! Pete

My Sig 556 Swat has the upgraded front pin, where it's more of ar style take down pin, using a detent to hold it in place. Why didn't sig do this from the outset? Beats me.

BTW, nice looking lower receiver!
