Tighten the Upper/Lower Receiver Fit
 
Why the AccuWedge? 

At worst, loose fitting upper/lower receivers can cause malfunctions, though this is rare in the scheme of things.
What is often lost in this debate is that all U.S.G.I. M16's have loose upper & lower receivers. It's the way they were made!
And for good reason.
At best, loose fitting upper/lower receivers have no impact on function, nor even accuracy! Inherent accuracy, that is.

Try shooting for points when the upper is moving (held in one hand) relative to the lower (held in the other hand).
Your sight picture & hold will most certainly suffer, and thusly, your "accuracy" will be diminished.
You are at a disadvantage, all other things being equal.
The AccuWedge should be installed on every AR15-type rifle.

In addition to the "accuracy" question, there is another area often missed.

The accuwedge "buffers" the violent, though momentary, shock to the front & rear takedown pins.
When things can get a running start, as you get with loose fitting parts in motion,
inertial energy will exacerbate and even accelerate the wear to any parts it is subjected to.
If the upper & lower receivers are dancing all over town each & every time the recoil energy is transferred,
then is it reasonable to assume that the upper & lower receiver take down pin holes are getting an unreasonable amount of wear from being shocked up & down,
back & forth, left & right? The pins are steel & the receivers are aluminum. Guess who loses the battle over time? 

So, get the AccuWedge, OK?
