The project continues, Pic added

with the lower now fully assembled.  And dies have been obtained for producing ammo.  Interestingly, bullets of suitable diameter/weight seem available, but little in the way of loaded ammo.  Still looking for some of that.

Leigh, that clevis pin idea worked wonderfully, no problem at all installing the pivot pin.

Added: here's how it looks
Yeah, that's an A2 stock; I find I like it better for some things than a adjustable.  This not being a tactical/home defense build, I prefer the length and feel of it better.  Rock River trigger, DPMS lower and other parts. 

After having watched son build/work on some AR firearms, I ought to be less worried about screwing something up here, but I'm not.  I do have a Claw upper-receiver block for assembling it, which should help.  I have a good scope, need to get some rings to mount it with.

That's great. Glad I could help.
I'd love to have a big bore AR, myself - unfortunately I live behind enemy lines here in the People's Republik of NewYorkistan. Such instruments of freedom are verboten by the Stasi in Albany.

I subscribe to the Maybury v Madison school of thought, however.

"Thus, the particular phraseology of the Constitution of the United States confirms and strengthens the principle, supposed to be essential to all written constitutions, that a law repugnant to the Constitution is void; and that courts, as well as other departments, are bound by that instrument."

Can't wait for the pics.
