The guy who invented the first wheel was an idiot. The guy who invented the other three, he was the genius.

I'm sure Wes can explain that on the 21st. He built my lower and installed the BB.
Has anyone removed one yet? Since my AR is staying in MO there is no need to keep the BB in it.

I agree that there isn't any difference in function. One could argue that the Original pounded in design is a "More Permanent" configuration change to the lower. Where as the newest BB's can be easily removed, the older style would require some sort of drilling/pounding etc. to remove. Something to the effect of "look officer, you can't even remove this Button as it is permanently attached to the lower". "There is no way I could remove this and swap for the evil version without some major work".I know, I sound like a scaredy cat.
I don't see an advantage to function having to force the spacer into the lower, and by changing their design it's seems as if they didn't either.

I am glad that when I needed one, they were on the 3rd generation. I put one on my Noveske N6 .308 (with a 22-250 upper on it now & and 308 upper on the way that I purchased today ). I would hate to have had to use a hammer on a $400 Noveske 308 lower :angry:As I said before, there are 3 generations that I know of that are genuine Bullet Buttons. The second generation is where the drop in fit came in, but they also made it shorter in the second generation and I have been told that it you pushed really hard, the skin of your finger could depress the button enough that the magazine could drop. They fixed it in the third generation by making the BB the same length as in generation 1. I believe that the Prince 50 is made by the same company (guy). It is important to note that with either the BB or the Prince 50...you should never use a magazine which will hold more than 10 as it would make a condition with a fixed magazine of more than 10 rounds which is a felony in itself
Same here. Mine is a genuine bullet button and there was no pounding, filing or fooling around. There must be different versions.
