re: Official AR-15 thread

The roll pin is not stuck. It's the detent that holds the (front) roll pin in place. It's stuck in a depressed position, inside the lower.

Ok, the spring and detent pin are stuck inside here?




Like you can take the takedown pin out and move it freely?

Correct. Tried pushing it further in to see if that'd spring it loose and now it's stuck further in.

Cheap one. PTK I think (ill go check for sure in a minute after the baby goes down).

I got a wild hair in the middle of the rush to make the build. Went against the boards advice and bought polymer because it was available. I think that's my problem. Probably a shard of polymer holding it in.

Well if its polymer then that voids one of my next suggestions.

Found this for you man, hope it helps. I'd get maybe a paper clip and put a couple bends in it and see if you can get behind the detent or catch a spring coil and pop it out.

Thanks. I put some Kroil on each side and am going to let it sit over night. If it doesn't come loose ill get to trying to pry it out.

Its your lower obviously man, but I'd keep it the lease invasive that I could. Try calling teh manufacturer tomorrow or later this week after you mess with it. They may be able to help you out, but if you go to banging and prying and scratching on it I doubt they'll take it back.

I was planning on going to a billet lower eventually, so if I mess it up too bad ill upgrade sooner rather than later.

I'll call the manufacturer if it doesn't come out with a little prying.

That's what they used to sell for. I still haven't put my hands on one yet and I actually have an extra comp4 Aimpoint at the moment but I'll get a Pro one day.
