Yep, that's what I figured. I tapped it back in, and it took a surprising amount if force. I'm not sure how it could have even come loose.

Personally, I have a hard time trusting a company with a webpage that looks like it was designed in 1996. I'd stick to the more reputable dealers, you can get great prices many places.

Military Specification. Basically, it's the same size and similar design to what the military uses. Almost all lowers are mil-spec these days. I wouldn't hesitate to use an aftermarket mag.

As long as the Oly is mil-spec or very close to it, you should be able to use any AR-15 magazine that fits 223 5.56. I use Pmags in mine, and have been very pleased with them. IIRC, the only issue...

Lol, I'm not normally a grammer-nazi, I swear. But although the word "assault" can be a noun or a verb, it is incorrect to use it as an adjective.

"Sport Utility Rifle".

"Assault" is a verb, not an adjective. Using a verb to describe a noun is silly on its own, even without the negative connotation added by liberal gun-grabbers.
