Any of you guys had that problem? Should I have prepared the parts before assembly?
An MIAD grip with the integral trigger guard attachment solves the trigger guard pin problem...
A pair of locking pliers with the teeth taped solves the colt catch pin problem... Just set it and squeeze it in...Then get a punch and drive it so it does not stick out at all.... You may or may not have to, the only problem is the f-ed up angle... I like to use painters or electrical tape around the works areas and contact pionts so I dont scuff, ding , scrape, scratch or strip anything....

These people, the ones who have been blessed with the gift of aggression and a love for others, are our sheepdogs. These are our warrior"
