All right, I admit it, I'm a milspec snob but if you stick to it you don't have these size problems!

Don't forget that you can use a large clear plastic bag to put the receiver in while installing detent launching parts. It will catch those slippery little suckers when they try to enter low orbit.

after reading this I still really want to build my own AR but I think I'll combine the plastic bag idea and another one by the salesperson at the store I buy all my stuff from. Go into your bathroom, sit in the bathtub, plug the drain, close the curtain and put your lower together in the tub. That way most parts will make an audible noise when hitting the tub and likely roll towards the drain which is plugged and therefore ease the search for the part.
So with the plastic bag idea and the tub idea, I think it's safe to say, losing parts during assembly will require a new kind of dumba$$.

edit: don't forget to tuck the curtain into the tub so if they fly towards the curtain, they hit and then proceed to fall into the tub not onto the bathroom floor

Nah, I don't know about building in the shower. Where do you keep your beer and pizza?!

Might as well do it while having a soak. Then when you finish you and the AR will be all clean and shiny.

real men don't take baths

only time you should be sitting in a tub full of water is a hot tub when you've got a drink in one hand, choice of smokeable in the other, at minimum one woman who's working your gun under the water, and another who's working the grill cooking you a steak.

Real men don't work on guns in the tub either

You are right Diggs, my original was not slanted but it was longer and with more holes indicating commercial, but neither commercial or milspec would fit at the gunshow fiasco.....I don't care what the heck I have now....that sucker is staying on there forever.
