Pistol Lower is together

Put my Aero pistol together last night. A coworker wanted to see how a lower is put together, so I showed him. Took around 10 minutes, didn't even have to chase any pins. Love the 4-40 threaded rear takedown hole. Grabbed a $0.29 screw from Menards , now I won't lose the spring and detent pin if I change pistol tubes/Murphy happens. Finally tried the vice grip method for installing roll pins. Hells yes, that is the way to do it.

McThag noticed that CMMG uses a non-standard grip in their kits- they aren't the only one. I've only bought 1 CMMG kit, but have 2 CMMG style grips. From left to right, MOE+,CMMG, Palmetto?, and Armalite.

The part I've fired most often when changing a stock has been the buffer retainer and spring.

Knock on wood, I've yet to lose a rear detent or spring.
