Just wrap some Saran Wrap around it and you can have no worries.

upper and lower arrived over the weekend, LPK from Aero arrived yesterday.... they don't include the 4-40 set screw for the spring and detent for the safety selector..... WTH?  Other than that like the upper and lower allot, the screw in pins for the forward assist and bolt catch are nice to keep from having to use a pin........ fit is nice, finish is nice.   There is a tensioning screw to help with lockup between lower and upper but its under the pistol grip and would have to be removed to adjust, guess once you set it you could Loctite it but after a while the polymer tip will settle and i'm sure need to be turned more.....

Uh-huh, that's what I want: a $400 rail system that requires duct tape and baling wire to do what I need.

They do look cool, and are super light weight.

I am betting you got shorted.  The kit shows those parts with it on their picture.  I bet if you call them up they will send replacements.

Looking more the 4-40 set screw is for the rear take down pin and is not in that picture.  Should come with the lower i bet though.

I thought that as well ST.... the box that the lower came in stated on the box that it used a 4-40 set screw then a couple lines down said it used the screw for the bolt catch (Included) was beside it.... I don't think they include the 4-40.... I am calling though. just haven't had the time.

The answer is no, they do not supply that set screw with lowers or LPK's from them even though they drill and tap their lowers for it? And they don't sell that set screw either.......  WTH Aero Precision

Thanks Graham.  I have a bunch of stuff like that left over from Grandpa's stash.  Now that I see a pick of them I will see what he has.  If not I will hit you up.

I haven't done an Aero, but on the ones I have done I had to trim the spring a bit or the tension was ungodly tight. If these are the same then it doesn't really matter how long the screw is.

length doesn't matter but I got the shortest ones to keep spring as long as possible

I have a UBR and mostly like it.  I am not a huge fan of the screw-in on the end, it always seems I have to over-tighten mine to make it all stay snugged up.

Otherwise, great stock, not light, but very solid.

Just go to a Fastenal. You can pick up a handful of set screws for pennies.

Another place you can find small set screws is any hobby store that sells RC models (Planes, cars, boats, helicopters, drones, etc.). 4-40 is a common size for that hobby.

However, technically you don't need the set screw. The end plate keeps the spring and detent contained just fine once you tighten the castle nut, and most ARs don't have a set screw.

They use a set screw there? Why? So you can remove the grip without the spring and detent coming out? Do you plan to remove the grip often? Every AR I've ever played with didn't have a set screw there; only a counterbore on the top of the grip and the grip itself contained the spring and detent.

What's the advantage of having set screws? So you can adjust spring tension? So you can remove the buffer tube and/or grip without the spring flying out? I've never used set screws for the takedown pin or safety selector and have never had any issues with function. I've never wanted more spring tension than what you get from the conventional spring length and containment method. Most AR lowers don't have set screws.

I am speaking for the rear takedown pin. Thats what seekins has and my mega as well. I have never seen one on the safety detent either. That would require cutting the spring very very short
