    Old Style Receiver Extension Lock Ring (Castle Nut)

    Looking to finish out a Colt 723 clone, and need some small pieces. Does anyone make a repro, or sell new old stock CAR style receiver extension lock rings like we’re used before the current style castle nuts?

    This place still has several. I just received 3 from them.

    What do you use to tighten/torque these down?

    I ordered two of these and received them today, just thought I'd let people know that these do not have the notches to stake the endplate into. Presumably the rings were on some flavor of commercial carbine whose manufacturer didn't bother with staking.
    The photo on the site indeed show the ring to be devoid of notches, but for whatever reason I didn't notice that until I actually had them in hand.
    I'm thinking I can add my own notches with a file, they may not look perfect but I'm thinking it will work.
