    It’s the new safety detent. You may be able to use the hole in your grip but they missed by a tiny bit and some grips won’t work sot they came up with a briliant solution. Just cut the safety detent spring down, use the ball bearing not the regular detent then you can adjust the tension on you safety.

    Precisely!! Cut the safety spring down to .250"

    Yes. To save a ton of time in changing the tooling, set up, programs and fixtures we made more SS uppers that what we had orders for. This is no longer the case. We are making enough F/A uppers to cover all of the lowers for production run #1 and #2. We will be cutting off production #2 of lowers in the not too distant future and placing orders into production run #3.

    Not yet but getting close for lowers. SS uppers will take some time as we need to produce more after we run the lowers, so fastest will be F/A upper and lower.

    What barrel do you have, link?
    I'm looking for 18.6 medium profile, 1in8 or 1in7, not fluted if possible, with a mid length gas system. And what length hand guard would you run, I was leaning towards 15in but want access to adjustable gb.

    13 1/2 or 14 should just barely cover the GB

    When should we expect completion of run #2 sets? sorry if this has been answered elsewhere.

    Depending on where you are in the line, late August to late September.

    With mid-length gas system I'd use a 12" handguard to cover the gas block, but still allow access to the block, assuming it accesses from the front, like most do, but you didn't specify a model. In our custom barrels, we can make it any profile you'd like, to whatever length you'd like, and we'll bring in a blank for whatever twist rate you'd like. We have 1 in 7 Rock Creek blanks on hand currently. We regularly work with blanks from Lilja, Jury, and a lengthy list of others.

    I'd suggest sending us an email and we can go over pricing and options. info@albertatacticalrifle.com
