Take your time.. if something doesn’t seem to be going right, stop and get online and do some more research before you force a part in that doesn’t want to go or before you drill a bad barrel pin hole.

have all your tools in order prior to the start, as well as all the parts inventory.

And be careful pushing on the barrel components the AIMS74 barrels are thinner than the Bulgy 74 barrels. I noticed them flexing a bit when populating my barrels

The AIMS-74 barrel is thinner from the gas block, forward.

They do tend to get bent more easily than others.

If the barrel comes without a gas port, the AIMS-74 gas port is drilled vertically, 90 degrees to the barrel, before the gas block is installed on the barrel.
