Upper/Lower reciever question
 
I need a little help, I am planning on building an AR. Would it make difference to use a miss matched upper/lower or a matched set such as Wilson Combat.

Nothing that will effect the performance of the rifle.

I plan on a Spikes Tactical lower and DPMS upper. I don't foresee any issues.

You shouldn't have any issues that an Accuwedge wouldn't fix.

Have you had any trouble w/ one coming apart and getting all over the inside of your lower?

I've seen the acuwedge and I'm pretty sure they go somewere between the upper and lower but don't know how the work. Do they stay put when you install them?

What does that mean? I do not understand your question.

Any particular reason for your choices?

They sit behind the rear take down pin and once they are installed, they don't move.
