    My latest DIY vid: a neat tip to make changing the AR pistol grip easy

    While the pistol grip on an AR can be removed and installed with a regular screwdriver, it can be perplexing and annoying because the flat blade of the screwdriver tends to slip out of the slotted screw - a lot. Also it can be a challenge to get the screw into the grip hole. This little trick solves all those problems and immensely simplifies the process.

    For my money, I just went to True Value and picked up a 1/4-28x1 socket head cap screw for $0.15, and never looked back.

    I don't care if it's not "mil-spec", it just works.

    I just removed one of mine today so I could use a longer spring with my selector. I couldn't find my screw holding screwdriver, so it was a pain removing it as usual. When I put it back in, it kept slipping before I could get the screw started. It took about ten minutes to find the other screwdriver, which I used to hold the screw and get it snug. Then I have to switch to the standard screwdriver since the one that holds the screw can't handle the torque.

    Even then, it still slips out at least once every time, usually twice.

    I like this idea.
