He's tried the accuwedge but it won't close with it in the lower. There's not a lot of play when it's together, I mean very little, but when it's open for cleaning, there's a lot of play on the front pin. I figure that if there's minimal play when you're firing it, it should be ok. I've never tried to fire mine when it's broken down for cleaning.
I've heard of front pins that are designed to be tighter, sort of "National Match" front pins. They are a pain to take out, but keep things tighter.
My Oly Arms was like this. Either the receiver hole was too small and tight, or the pin was oversize. It took a punch to remove (my Colt is finger tight), but everything was super-tight when it all went together.
We put the pin from Bushmaster in the rifle today. It tightened up everything. He was actually looking for a front pivot-pin, my fault on the terminology. This took care of the slight play in the rifle.

I am aware that there are mil-spec and commercial spec handles out there. I have heard of some troubles folks have had with an "F" front sight and the (usually too low) rear sight on a commercial carry handle, etc.
I was just wondering if anyone with a detachable handle could measure...
Was perusing one of my local haunts the other day and the owner tells me they just took in huge estate purchase. Several high end revolvers....Korth...Colt.....some real nice older Smith & Wessons. All big money and nothing I really was interested in. Owner then says there were several AR's in...
I hope someone can help educate me regarding the origins of some of my favorite rifles.
I am aware of the existence of both the HBAR 20-inch barrel and the so-called "Government profile" A2 barrel profile. I have owned and fired both. I'm not trying to start a discussion of the pros...
