I don't believe those things make a whit of difference, except that they make money for Accuwedge and John Paul.

Having said that, I have a JP takedown pin on one of my ARs!
Hear Hear! 99.9% of most accuracy problems or inaccuracy from a gun are caused by that loose nut on the stock. A good solid position, good sight picture and trigger squeeze are worth 3 clicks of windage any day.

Where's a good place for AR parts? I need a pivot pin spring.

I like MidwayUSA and have ordered some really small AR parts from them.

Been reading a little bit about the .327 Fed Magnum this morning and I think I might want one. Anybody have one? I am hoping they release the SP101 with the 4" barrel in .327, might be perfect for my wife and not so expensive to reload for either.

In addition to Midway, Brownells carries just about everything you could ever need or want. It's where most professional gunsmiths get theirs.

Only thing that needs to be done to make an accurate AR is float a good barrel and have a decent trigger, period, end-of-story. All else is window-dressing.
It is pretty annoying to have a loose upper lower fit. Your cheek weld is on the stock, which is attached to the lower, and your sights are on the upper, if its loose your sight picture can cange a bit, not huge, but it annoys me. Some might not find it a problem.

Definitely somthing that can be fixed if it is bothersome

Thanks guys, I found them on Brownell's site, is there a little piece
that goes in the end of the spring that fits in the slot on the takedown
pin? OK, never mind, watched the video and figgered it out.

It's called detent. It's those two shiny pins at the upper left. They tend to go shooting off if you're not careful.

Can you guys explain to me what the differences are between the CZ75B, P-01 and SP-01?

CZ-75B = Alloy frame, decocker, rubber grips, 15rd cap

P-01 = Poly frame, monolithic frame/slide, decocker, 18+ cap

SP-01 = Same as P-01, but with alloy frame

The CZ-75 has a slightly larger grip "feel". The SP-01 and P-01 incorporate a new(ish) trigger design.

Why would he need to thread the barrel of an AR made before 1994? It should already have a flash suppressor.
