Ive been kicking the idea of just getting rid of the lower and move on. I found out we have a newer gun store, so it was a perfect excuse to go and pick up a lpk and check the store out. The kit was a bit more that mail order, but the guys running it were knowledgeable, and I like to try to buy local. ($69 bucks for the kit). I get the thing home and download the direction from here. As I put the thing together, I realize its got 2 pivot pins and 0 take down pin.
It was nice to be able to pick up the phone, explain the situation, the guy told me no problem, just bring the pins and they would exchange one for me!
I was able to get home and finish up, If it happened by mail, I think I'd be waiting a week. Jim
