    I have an older A2 Colt CAR 16" upper receiver group with a lightweight profile barrel. It has the larger hole for the perm/ screwable front pivots pins. The lowers I have are drilled for the smaller mil-spec pin.

    My question is whether there's an adaptor out there that will allow me to mate this my lower to this upper? Like a sleeve that would go inside the upper and fit snuggly around the front pivot pin it would allow to pass through.

    Does anyone else have experience with this issue?
    Thanks.

    Thanks, think I found it here. DPMS, but only 3.19 and should be exactly what I'm looking for.
    Cheers.
