    Using a pipecleaner to measure depth of the hole it comes out to .8355"

    Also it seems that the bold catch pin is supposed to be of the threaded variety. Where would one pick one up at?
    I will look tomorrow and report back on the plunger hole and yes, the bolt catch is the threaded variety. We are making some but don't have yet, but brownells has them usually in stock, or also TNA here in Canada.

    Sorry if I'm not getting it, there's a threaded pin instead of a roll pin? Or is the bolt catch itself threaded somehow ?
    Just have what comes in a standard LPK, I think, bolt catch, plunger, spring and roll pin

    It uses a threaded pin rather than a standard roll pin. Not included in normal LPKs. Looks like brownells has them though. I hope they fit!

    Also JR, I'm having trouble getting gen 3 pmags to seat. Looks like its 1 millimeter too high. Gen2 and stanags work though. Is this common? Would you advise removing material from the mag catch lug?
    Fight for what you believe in today because tomorrow could just be too late.

    When do you expect your pins to be ready to ship? Would it make more sense to wait for yours than try and import pins? Asking for a friend.

    Sorry... we noted that when we built ours and it is due to the geometry of the lower as it is not a true AR15.... we simply cut about 2mm off the spring as it's nothing really "critical".... it takes very little pressure down on the plunger to hold the detente properly.

    We tested our model with stanag, gen 2 pmags' e-lander and cross mags... I have no gen 3s to compare with so I cannot advise.

    To be honest, we were more concerned with duplicating than "new features" as our MS was a recent production model and certain "assumptions " were just made about reliability and usability.... we wanted this out f.a.s.t!

    I have secured enough screw bolt catch pins and will put one in with each set.... gratis.

    You poor guys who picked your sets up will have to come in on monday to get one.

    That is quite concerning. If someone else can test this out as well, that would be great.
