It's actually pretty easy. The only thing I will mention is be sure you put the disconnector spring in the correct way. It's a tapered spring. The wider end goes into the trigger body and the smaller end goes up against the disconnector. Other than that, it's pretty straight-forward.

That's real nice!! I'm planning my first at build and really like what you did for that budget.

What's a rough idea of what the upper half vs lower half of that cost you? I'd look it up but am only on my phone right now?

Maybe if you have sausage fingers like I do buy a few extra springs and detent pins...I shot 2 of them across the garage and have yet to find them, luckily I had a buddy who could spare me the parts!!:facepalm:
