Part 2 of Project PTW’s look at SGT’s gen 2 416 kit gets up close and personal with the lower receiver.
My SGT 416 kit and donor PTW is currently with Tackleberry awaiting some TLC, so I’m hoping to be in a position to report T’s impressions soon.
Over to Stu:
“SGT 416 Lower receiver installation. First off was to check the Take Down pin fitment, they were overly tight and the lower receiver holes are reamed out to the correct size.”
“Above you can see the gearbox height at the rear before fitting the SGT supplied shim (0.2mm).”
“Shim in position under the rear fixing point.”
“Once the gear box was in position the fire selector lever hole was reamed out to accommodate the standard Systema selector.”
“On the opposite side a similar amount was removed to fit the selector blanking cap and all the dummy pin head locations.”
“Motor fitment into the lower is great. Mesh adjustments were then carried out after taking several dimensions into account so the pinion gear position could be set.”
