They don't work with all lowers. For example they will not fit in a RRA lower. RRA leaves a shelf back were the accu-wedge is suppose to got. This is to make it more difficult to add the auto sear if your trying a full auto conversion IIRC.

Ok. It looks as though it'll work in my lower. I don't have much wiggle but it bothers me a little.
My RRA was tighter than a...well it was tight.:mrgreen:

Truthfully I wouldn't worry about it. The wiggle has no affect on accuracty as the rear sight and the front sight are both on the upper with the barrel.

I know but I have a slight case of OCD. I just went and got an accu-wedge from the local EBR store for $3. Now to see if it works...

[threadjack] I got relates in Akron. Drive right by the Summit store to get there. [/threadjack]


+1 on Accuwedge not needed. Loose upper to lower fit is a good thing

[threadjack]Summit Racing is a great place. They now sell regular parts for all automobiles. I go there all the time for replacement parts now. If you ever get a chance to stop in there, just walk in. I believe that they're open 9:00-9:00 every day.[/threadjack]


Tell us how the accuwedge works. I've actually never used one.

Well, I had to cut it down to fit. Then I sanded it some. Then I tried for ten minutes to get the upper and lower together. Now the upper and lower seem to fit pretty tight without it. :???: Must have tweaked something. Anyway, I have it for when I need it, but everything seems ok for now.

I'll have to report on these when I get my upper in. I ordered an Accuwedge to go with it. From what I've found online, Colt installs them from the factory with their rifles (needs verification).

Order more than one. You'll have probably have to cut it to make the bottom thinner. If you screw up you'll have a spare :-D

I don't see any improvement in accuracy but it does push the upper and lower apart so it doesn't make that clicking noise when you pick up your AR, when you go to take the pin out you have to squeeze the upper/lower together slightly to release the tension. The best thing I have bought for my AR is the "gapper" it's the little rubber piece that fits right below the trigger guard it just fills in that space that my middle finger likes to get all crushed up against.

I had one in there when I traded for it but took it out after a while. I qual at 500 yards every year without one. It also makes it harder to take the rifle down with it in there and I noticed when cycling that the bolt felt "tighter" when moving into the buffer tube. I would rather it be a little loose than too tight myself.

When you tighten the bolt that runs through the 2 pieces, they tighten up towards each other and where they're kind wedge shaped, they tighten against the lower and upper halves.

The only disadvantage is you have to use the allen wrench to takedown or reassemble. Probably a bad idea for a service rifle, but for a bench or competition gun, I like them a lot.

I stopped using mine because it was a pain to knock out the rear pin to pop in my Ciener kit or clean in the field.

OK clean at the range :)
