    Default Ar Takedown Pin spring

    I went to install a new plate on my ar (that i got at far north btw)

    Anyhow, i ended up launching the spring into oblivion. I cant seem to find one in the interior as of yet. (protek is closed till mon)

    Should I be unable to find one, by chance does anyone have an extra?

    When I bought the parts to do my first AR lower DIY build, the company I bought the parts from had a note to get a few extra parts (small springs and plungers?) because most people launch them on their first try.

    The other option is to put the lower and these small parts into a clear plastic bag (large garbage bag) during ass. so that if any thing gets launched it is contained within the bag.

    Dont you just love how things can just randomly appear? The cat knocked over my toolbox while i was at work, and the spring was just sitting on top of the pile of junk.

    Rifle is back together and function checked

    Cant wait to get to the range

    take a large magnet and scan the room looking for it. usually works. or use the vaccum and listen for it to get sucked in.
