Default I made n error...... help!!!!

So i did something bad that really is not reversible i was putting a magpul trigger guard in a dpms lower and it happened a tab broke off. Have any of you made this error what are your fixes. I'm thinking about having it tighed back on then refinish it in tan or should i just glue it back on and have it be a beater ar. Worst part is its my buddies now i gotta replace his lower. Thinking a arbor press will be a new purchase

Nice call Pure.

Also the older 1st gen Magpul MIADs have guards built into them too.

I've seen worse, and I do commend you for stepping up and replacing it for your friend. Nice move!

Yep. Break out the check book. Time to buy him a new lower. Smile... Tiki pointed out the upside.
