Allizard has put a Knights Armament trigger guard on his LM4 and it looks like it had good results looking at the picture.

Just to prove that it can happen to the best of us, I was installing my magpul trigger guard last night and broke the ear off the lower receiver. lol
I did have a support on opposite side when tapping the roll pin back in and everything lined up good. But I must have tapped it a little harder than I should and I should have used a little oil. This never happened to me before so it's a little weird.  Anyways, I glued that sucker back and the trigger guard is secure so it's all good. lol
Just be careful guys if you attempt this yourselves.

Sorry to hear that! That sucks big time..I hope some companies make some upper/lower receievers in the near future..I would have been cursing up a storm if this would have happened to me..again..

Ah man that sucks, I'll definitely take a lot of care when I install my guard.

As for aftermarket receivers, I really hope someone makes some. Id love to have a VLTOR style upper and maybe a lower with trademarks of some sort.

Maybe someone should contact Prime to ask them to think about making some receiver sets. Guns Modify was making a forged one for the Asia LM4 but I don't know if they will ever make one for the US version.

Make sure you take the GRIP off before punching out the roll pin.  It has to stay as even as possible.
