Yeah, but keeping the cost down on my toys keeps me in good graces with my wife. I have a friend who has a registered lightning link he lets me borrow on occasion, and I have to find ways to make things cheaper to stay out of the doghouse. Also, with 22 ammo, I don't have to worry as much about the rounds going somewhere I don't want them to. Everytime the paddle wears out on the link, he just fabricates a new one. The bottom is the part with the serial number, and it doesn't get hit by the bolt carrier.
