  Some Colt upper receivers will not 
have a machined relief. Check 
r
ecess/sear relief for .090" 
depth. Width: .750" - .755". 
.....
.....

     

 Gauge Receiver Play by laying a 
 .012" automotive feeler gauge 
across lower receiver above the 
safety. Close and hold the receivers 
together firmly. If the pin resists 
when pushed or meets resistance 
means the shim should work. 
If the pin passed through the 
 receivers without resistance 
means the shim may not work.
.....
.....

 

 Place one side of the shim against
 the recess wall, push the opposite 
side down into recess.

.....
.....

 

Shim is fully seated, surface level 
 and parallel with upper receiver. 
Angled ends are for removing
 the shim with a screwdriver.

Close and hold the receivers together 
firmly, check takedown pin travel. 
The upper receiver lug bore should 
appear slightly higher than the
 bore in the lower receiver.

Remove the shim from the upper 
receiver. Note front, middle
and 
curve thickness.
Remove backing
 from the Shim Gripper Block. 
Place the longer side of the 
shim against
 the
adhesive.

.
 Place gripper block on sanding strip.
Remove
.001 inch from the shim. 
Lightly sand
outer edge around 
the shorter side of the shim.
.....
.....

.

 Install shim, holding the receivers 
together firmly check pin travel, 
repeat surfacing as needed.
 Progress Slowly, Do Not Force
 
  The Takedown Pin.   
 The slot in an uninstalled takedown
 
 
pin must align with the spring and 
 detent bore in the lower receiver.
.....
.....

  .

 
The shim is surfaced gradually until 
  the takedown pin pushes smoothly 
 through the
 upper receiver lug
  bore and enters well into the lower
 
 receiver bore as shown above.

.....
.....

 

The remaining short portion of the 
takedown pin can be seated with 
the supplied driver. Tap driver
 with a screwdriver handle.

the receivers feel Rock Solid.
