Alternative Views:


Have a loose fit between your upper and lower on your Modern Sporting Rifle? This tension screw can take the annoying wobble out of your AR type rifle and give you a more solid platform. The nylon tipped tension screw allows the shooter to fine tune the upper and lower fit of their AR15 and AR10 style rifles. This tension screw will only work on lowers that have been drilled and tapped for a tension screw to be added. To find out if your lower has the hole, simply push out the rear takedown pin and inspect the lower for the hole (see photos). DOES NOT FIT SAVAGE ARMS AR LOWERS If you have a Savage lower, click HERE for the correct screw.

Installation Instructions RESTRICTIONS
 

1. Remove the grip screw and lock washer from the grip of your rifle. Remove the grip. Mind the spring and detent for the safety as they may bounce out as you remove the grip completely.

2. Using a 1/8" Hex wrench, screw in the tension screw from the hole exposed by removing the grip.

3. With the upper and lower installed, place enough tension on the screw to allow for a snug fit between the upper and lower. Too much tension may cause the upper and lower to be too tight making it difficult to push the rear detent pin.

5 of 5 Just what I needed, shipped fast. October 15, 2021
Reviewer: EC from , Ohio  
One of the 80% receivers I got had the threaded hole for this screw. Got it to finish it out. Wasn't sure who made the receiver, so I ordered one of each this one and the Savage one. Figured out that this one and the pistol grip screw are both 1/4-28, while the Savage is 1/4-20, so that would be an easy way to tell which one you need.

Reviewer: Shawn from Falling Waters, WV United States  
Came across Taylor Tactical from a web search, exactly what I was looking for, well priced item, shipping price not bad and I received the items faster than most sites I order from.  The screws are machined well and made in the USA!  Thank you!
