Hi, Do any of you have an online source for assembely instructions for the AR lower parts kit. I have had my existing lower apart a bit but will be installing a parts kit in a new one soon. Any advice would be appreciated.

It is not the sort of thing you want to tackle unless you are an armorer with years of experience and have an abundance of specialty tools and several hours if not days to commit to the project. I am not trying to dissuade you, just make sure you know what you are getting into before you make a big mess

but your tools will have to be made out of materials a lot harder than sticks, bone and stone.

You can build an AR while in bed watching the Jay Leno.

Ask me how I know :)

AR15.COM has info on how to build up bare lowers.

Be careful when installing the pivot pin detent! Point it to the ground if you have carpet. Here's a tip, find something that can fit in the pivot hole and push it through from the left side. A hex wrench of the right dimensions usually works. Then use it to hold the pin in place. Now, making sure it's facing the right direction, insert the pivot pin from the right side, pushing the hex wrench out and catching on the detent pin.

Hahah. Actually, singular cat at the time (I got my 2nd cat last year).

For awhile it was kinda busy here - had the GF's 2 cats here as well. 4 cats in a 2br2.5ba townhome gets a little busy :)

OOOOH! AR...NOT AK... thats differant... I will send my son over to help you out he is only 20 months old but he is prety handy with Leggos and he has helped me with a few :D

yep... front detent... order an extra spring and detent (those things fly!) and install it in a plastic trash bag.


don't install the boltstop roll pin with plyers and tape, you are likely to scratch your reciever.. get a punch...home depot $5

AK's aren't that hard. Some mod'ed bolt cutters, a vice, some punches, and a drill press are enough to build one.
