View Full Version : AR Odds & Ends

03-17-2008, 3:59 PM
Building my 1st AR and using Brownells (C & R discount) almost exclusively for all the odds & ends. I just know I'm going to forget a part or two or launch a detent & spring into low orbit. Is there a store anywhere between Sacramento & San Jose & Dublin that I can walk into and grab a part I may need?

hehe.. just put a bag over it and cut a couple of coils off of the springs. it'll still work fine. haha, i still remember looking around for mine for my first build. suprisingly i found both and was able to complete the build without having to drive to randalls place to pick it up.
if not, you can order a couple of the little springs and detents from brownells (look under small parts)

Just buy them in advance... doesn't hurt to have a few things around. They're about $0.80/each. Stores charge more. A lot more. Getting them shipped would cost more than the parts.

Now, me, I've still yet to lose anything during an assembly... knock on wood. 11 down.

Irvington Arms has most of the springs, pins and detents on hand.

I usually use M+A for little detents and stuff, they've been reliable and quick to ship.
