Question about pre/post-2011 A5's

I'm planning an A5 build from spare parts using either a 1st or 2nd gen receiver. Looking at post-2011 models I can see where the new-style grip frame differs from the OG and the HE frames, so I'm wondering if there might be any compatability issues between one of the new style mech/RT/Electronic frames and an old upper receiver. I'm not anticipating any problems since it doesn't seem like any other modifications are different. It seems like I'd just need to leave out the tombstone latch since the 2011 frame acts as the latch itself.

Way too easy Cyco. I did send them a message, so we'll see what they say. I'll post up their answer for posterity.

that'll be good to see what they say. a quick search on a5og seems to confirm what you're thinking; it'll fit but you'll either have to remove the tombstone latch or modify the grip to fit the latch.

Yeah, I seem to remember seeing an old body with the new grip on it over there in passing. I'm on meds for a messed up shoulder this week, so I'm a little loopy. Thanks for the help!
