Hah!!! Did you cut the end of the card off to remove the rounded corners and create sharp 90 degree corners as the initial post instructed???

Between the tight[er] tolerances or lack of wear, I could have used this trick last night. Also contributing were the abundant and awful mill marks in both the receiver and bolt. This is going to need some work.

Side note question, I pulled it apart to install a Kidd guide rod and 10% lighter spring and could not get the bolt back far enough with the factory bead between the spring and the charging handle so I left it out. Also, I did not crimp the guide rod to keep the charging handle on the rod when disassembled. I would appreciate your thoughts on the bead and crimping the guide rod,
What factory bead???? I knew that there was a retainer of some sort that held the stock spring in place, but I didn't know that it was removeable.

I also have the Kidd bolt, charging handle, spring set and rod and it can be a royal pain to install until you get the rhythm.

The trick with the credit card won't work for me because of the size of the pieces my wife left them in...
Lots of good laws out there...Too bad the Regulators effed them up.
