    Default So close with my A1'yet so far away.

    Need to find appropriate triggers, and A1 buttplates. Then either get up the nerve to drive the roll pins into the trigger guards and Magazine catch without damaging the ears when doing so or have BPTactical finish out thee lower..
    Basically have to finish out the lower parts kit.

    Also need to find one more late style A1 stock for my second lower that isnt beat to hell. This is both sides of one rifle.

    If it doesn't have to be an authentic piece Cavalry Arms makes brand new A1 stocks.

    Apparently Brownells offers A1 furniture as well.

    I used a C-clamp to put the pin in the trigger guard of one rifle I assembled. Just cover the parts with tape to keep from marring the finish. If you keep the ear properly supported using a punch isn't really that scary.

    I've got a trigger guard pin tool/vise (Wheeler I think), if you'd like to borrow it for a few days.

    The link provided doesn't work for me. Awfully nice if you to offer to loan a tool out though.

    Got it done.... Just need to properly mount the flash hider and get a new buttplate for the stock. Then start on the second rifle.
