I have an old Armalite AR-7 that I fished out of my father's attic...it hasn't been cleaned in years. I started to detail strip the reciever/trigger group, and forgot to take photos of what I was doing along the way...so I currently have a pile of parts.

Anyone have any on-line help that I might be able to use? I wasn't able to find anything useful on this site or on Google...

Second, I need to buy a new butt-cap for it...Numrich doesn't have anything for it. Anyone know of someplace to buy replacement parts?

Henry Repeating Arms currently makes a version of this, and I believe that the parts are compatible. If you send them a note, I bet they'd send you a parts list (sorry, can't remember if it shows a complete breakdown of the rifle). Last time I requested something, I think the president of the company had hand-addressed it to me...

Disregard...I spent 30 minutes playing with the parts and I've got it back together in what I think is the correct configuration. It seems to function check correctly.

The only difference is that the trigger pull is heavier! I cleaned a LOT of lead fouling and gunk from inside there...I wonder if the trigger sear had some stuff built up on it which made it a slightly easier pull?

Thanks!

Good luck with it. Mine jammed twice per mag, at least. :(
