    So we should expect to have to hand fit and send these off to be anodized again after getting them?

    Why not file/sand the LPK parts instead of the receiver itself?
    That's what I did to my Gen 1 NEA receivers.

    because the receiver is the problem. the upper has places that prevent mags from seating properly. A hammer is hardened steel, the trigger control box is aluminum, a quick 2mm off with a file versus a lathe or grinder.

    It's pathetic that one should have to file/grind/sand/mill a $1000 receiver set. Fix your ####, MacDef.

    As we know, not all parts are compatible with the MDI SLR. I was really hoping to run a lightweight BCG in my SLR, so I bought the 2A Armament Titanium Regulated Bolt Carrier (RBC). Unfortunately, when it came time to put my BCG in the upper, my excitement turned to dread.

    The 2A Armament Titanium Regulated Bolt Carrier (RBC) is not compatible with the MDI SLR.

    So, the RBC will likely be up on EE shortly, and now my search begins to find a lightweight BCG that is proven to be compatible with the SLR.

    Does anyone have a proven lightweight BCG that actually fits, runs, and is compatible with the SLR?

    Thanks

    I thought the same....

    I guess there are different tolerances, and MDI says that their upper is on the tighter side of the spectrum. So, it would appear that the 2A BCG is on the larger side of the spectrum and doesn't fit in the SLR. I did test the 2A BCG on another AR and it fit fine, although tighter than the original BCG that came with the AR.

    Anyways, waste of money getting the 2A for the SLR....

    That has me worried. I read a review how the barrel torque tool from TNA might not work with the SLR, and I bought it...

    The BCG was over $600, not a good feeling...
