    Glad to hear you got it done fast and cheap.

    Oh, just so you know, there is no height requirement for the makers info, just depth (.003"). The height requirement is only for the serial #.

    I've always been good with 1911's, but these AR lowers are a piece of cake...had to take my time on the bolt catch pin though..held it with same hand as the punch and tapped with the other..not in a vice. but nothing got scratched or scraped..
    oh yea, i went with a YHM lower and a RRA LPK.

    All this talk about 9mm SBRs has convinced me to get the lower I bought 3 months ago for mine out of the safe and start the paperwork. Picked it up from the engravers today and will mail the form 1 tomorrow. You guys are a bad influence on me! :D

    Just got it built as a pistol for now...
    bought a upper with 7'' barrel (will be cut down thursday)
    EOTech xps 2-2
    colt mag
    hahn conversion kit 9mm (being mailed next day)
    and a pistol buffer assembly
