I did discover a much easier way to install the ids spring than they show on the Web site. I think it's going to be a ton of fun and ammo costly!

I did not realize that you had to install the selector switch before you installed the Gen III BFS trigger pack. When I removed the pins to remove the trigger, everything fell apart. After shooting that little spring across the room a couple of times, and the subsequent flashlight searches, I finally got it all back together.

Learning curve check, Install the safety selector first. LOL

I used Thunderduds on my 10.5" Palmetto AR pistol using a CMMG stainless 22 conversion with success both suppressed and unsuppressed with a Form1 suppressor. I still need to get more trigger time on the PSA AR9 pistol. Still contemplating whether to keep the flash hider mounted or to replace it with a Gemtech 1/2 x 36 mount. Also I need to fire my AR with an Fostech echo installed. The AR pistol shooting 22 definitely is the cheapest to shoot and with no recoil.

I just installed BFS3 in a 80%. I had to do a little gunsmithing to get it to pass all the checks. About 2 days worth , but it is right now. It was a PITA, but I really like the thought of this not having serial numbers.

It wasnt the 80% milling that wasnt enjoyable. It was the gunsmithing on the trigger that was a little frustrating. I had to figure out each and every curve and understand the mechanics of the trigger. Then had to modify it to work.

Over all, I am enjoying the process and have a complete lower ready to go. Now its onto building the upper. (Menawhile Ill test my lower with my mil spec Colt HBar upper)

Mine dropped in about 30 mins and passed every check. Worked perfectly at the range as well. This was in a PSA 9mm lower.

I am hoping they won't be. I have bought a few (3) with the idea they might grandfather them in if the BATFE changes their mind on them.

Been waiting a while.

Yep. I ordered mine that day as well, but not as soon as your order. I hope that doesn't mean that mine takes a month longer to ship... I look forward to being an early adopter.

Yep, I had an alarm set and had the site up on my computer with the clock counting down. LOL

They were suppose to be out by the end of July. Some problem with a spring or something from one of their suppliers. I would rather them work it out before they ship, I guess.

I hope they start shipping by the end of September but I am not holding my breath just yet.

I made some anodized aluminum labels to replace the paper 1s ( they look and feel awful cheap) I still need to make a fixture to remove them from the sheet. They have 3m backing. Can't wait to replace the paper 1's :-)

Just FYI, the price is starting to come down on these things for the AR15 version. Couple left on sale if you are quick. $300
