View Full Version : First AR build = done

03-01-2012, 10:12 AM
I finished my first AR build, my friend helped me since he had all the special tools and he had built many AR's in the past.

I do have one question, I have a fixed buttstock and tighthen up the screw in the back but still has a little bit of a play (forward and back) on the buttstock. Is there some kind of a spacer od do I need to use or cut the bolt shorter since it could be bottoming out?

thanks you for advise

Nice rifle! Maybe try a spacer of sorts first to see if that tightens it up. If it does, maybe cut down the bolt. No use in cutting the bolt if the spacer doesn't help.
