pull BOTH the front and rear pins out. this will let the lower and upper completely separate. I can't see how that wouldn't fix this problem. you should be able to jiggle it apart if it gives you a fuss.
man.. putting a BCG in backwards. lol!
I know, give it to me good. Hey, first time taking apart a rifle. Cut me some slack....k?
Yes, I will definately stick around, adding to my favorites as we speak. I have more knowledge to gain, and now-a-days it is pretty easy to get that on forums such as these. I probably would have went to a gunsmith if you guys wouldn't have helped me. Thanks!
