    Are you referring to the flat sided punches? I used a roll pin punch set and a roll pin starter as well

    Ya, that roll pin hole is tight.
    Maybe use some sand paper to make the pin smaller.

    My other issue i'm having is that the rod for the dust cover is too long and pokes out to where the threads are for the barrel. It is from TNA

    Any help is appreciated thanks
    The dust cover rod issue is common. Just trim it down until it’s flush or go with a “rod less” quick insert style.

    I am having a hard time with the roll pins for the forward assist and bolt catch. I ended up breaking the bolt catch roll pin so i am ordering a new one but having a lot of trouble. They are from a Geissele LPK and i made sure to put oil before putting them in.

    I've put a bunch of these together and never had a problem tapping in the roll pins. Be sure to hold the pin so it's aligned perfectly and hold the punch so it's also aligned perfectly. Give it a good tap to get it started then it will go in as smooth as butter. If things aren't being held straight the force isn't going to transfer properly and all sorts of bad things can happen. Take it slow and steady and you'll be fine.

    And yes the dust cover rod has to be shortened.

    While there is a lot of great advice there, I would also advise before proceeding further, put the forward assist in, then put the largest diameter punch through the hole to ensure you have a clear path for the roll pin. You should never have to FORCE parts in, and it's always best to proceed with a little care and caution. If there is any obstruction, contact us by email info@albertatacticalrifle.com and we'll get you taken care of. If you are local in town, just stop by and we can check it out for you.

    Someone is missing a barrel and a couple receivers... Round three shipping canít come fast enough!!!!

    And if anyone can point me to a finger groove style grip in stealth grey would be nice!

    Undecided on the trigger for the 22lr build too. Waiting for mags from brownells.

    Looking for insight. I am on the lookout for an 18.6 5.56/223 Wilde barrel that is light/medium profile for one upper and a bcg to go with.

    Also looking for information on where to obtain a barrel in 450 Bushmaster. Atrs doesn’t have a lead on any at the moment.

    I am looking to make these both as accurate as possible while not being terribly heavy. Can anyone share their success story setups that have worked well for them in both the weight and accuracy department. Thanks.

    Has anyone tried bedding the upper receiver lug? Or do the new uppers fit pretty well?

    I used a faxon Gunner 18.6” in .223 Wylde, haven’t had a chance to get past 100 yards with it yet, but I put 10 rounds of xm855 in a group about 1.1”, I would call that pretty accurate for a light weight barrel with surplus ammo
