Oh I understand now. You can't cut the screws?

I can.  I have a bolt cutter I use to cut the threaded rod for the Lego rifle stocks.  But that tends to mess up the threads.  Also have a Dremel that would probably work better.  But before I cut anything, I'd like to find out if they want to exchange parts or something.

Worst case, I'll drop in @ a Fastenall, and they'll have the right screws.

It's an 8-32, 3/8", but the heads are small to fit in the adapter for the AR pistol grip.

It's been 50 years since the GCA was enacted against the 2nd Amendment, we can wait a few more days.

Probably better to use a hacksaw rather than a Dremel for trimming the tail...

A hacksaw and files will clean that up nice I think.

Hacksaw got most of the back corner off after Dremeling.  Going to do some more Dremeling to get the last few millimeters off so it will fit in the stock properly.

I wasn't thinking about that section when you originally posted this. I'm interested to see how it works.

I'm thinking the .22" LR upper might work as a single shot w/ a pistol grip & some duct tape.

Well, after 4 years on this board, I finally built a homemade rifle:













A spacer cut from electrical conduit that I decided not to use:





Here she is:



Discovered I can control the location of the buffer tube by using 2 castle nuts and an AR receiver end plate:

Looks good to me. Could you put a zip tie right in front of the trigger but behind the ejection port to secure the "lower"?

Don't think so.  But I might be able to run a zip tie through the cheap trigger pin lockdown arms, and run it over that way.  Going to try it 1st w/ no zip ties.

You know, looking @ the picture above, since I'm too lazy to walk across the room and pick up the rifle, looks like there's space in the jig in front of the trigger pack.  I'll try up there.

Since you're not utilizing a LRBHO you could add a hole to the trigger jig and a piece of shelving steel straight across and secure the upper to the "lower" with a pair of 1/4-20 screws.

That would require work. 

Also, the eventual upper - AR5.7 - ejects straight down.  Let's see how far we get w/ this thing flopping around.

Test fired the .22" LR today, w/o zip ties.  Takes about 3 hands & a hip to load, but shot fine.  The same upper w/ the same cheap bulk .22" LR would fail to reset the trigger on a new GWACS lower w/ GWACS LPK.

Easiest loading was through the magwell port of the upper, up the feed ramp, while holding the bolt to the rear.  I think it will be a challenge on a centerfire upper to load w/o the LRBHO, but will be doable.

Safety is swinging freely - I think the detent is hung up on part of the Hera stock, as the safety did work w/ an A1 pistol grip installed.  Need to install a conventional lower into the stock & get the safety working, then try again w/ the trigger jig.

Well, this is the easiest and most expensive single-shot .22" LR build I know of, lol!
