    First build spikes lower with rra parts kit all went well except for sending the takedown pin across the room. Lol. So now I gotta go to the gun shop and see if they have any if not.
    Goin to wait till get my upper and spend 1.50 for two at psa

    That's why I got a cat.... she finds anything and everything! Seriously. I've lost small parts only to find them in the middle of the floor the next morning. Good kitty.

    So, I've been looking but don't really know where the best place is to get a complete upper looked at psa and aim surplus where else should I look. Or should I just save for the rra the dealer has for around 650

    You put it into the rear takedown pin holes in the upper.

    Line up one of the holes in the clevis pin with the retaining pin channel and use a pin punch to push the retainer pin and spring into the channel.

    Back the pin punch out while rotating the clevis pin.

    Now the retainer pin and spring are held in place.

    Slowly replace the clevis pin with the takedown pin and...voila!
