    Default Buffer thread problem

    Messed up the threads. Removed the threads. Used acraglass steel bed and pinned the buffer tube. The buffer hole end of the receiver was warped. Thanks to those who helped me. Larry in Cookeville

    Put a picture up of the problem you're having. Maybe somone can figure out a way to fix it if they can see the problem.

    Default Trying to fix my mistake

    Did not take a picture before I steel Acraglass the buffer tube to the lower. After it dries overnight I plan on pinning it at the top and both sides. Do you think that this will work?

    Has anyone else messed up like me? Thanks, Larry in Cookeville

    The original M-16 had a pinned buffer tube. It was one pin across through the bottom. It also had the threads.

    This guy reamed the hole and JBwelded the buffer tube. I think a couple pins and some epoxy will hold it alright. Wouldn't be my first choice but you can't go back in time. Was this on an unfinished lower or a 100%?
