I bought some of them. Trying to orient the parts so they'll print without support scarring is really bloody difficult. The larger parts are no big deal, but the small retaining pins? Crazy. Some of them are rounded on the ends so you can't stand them up straight.

Maybe someone can give me some hints on how to print the smaller parts without support damage?

I've printed the entire M4. With small parts, print them one by one on slow speeds. If the lips are small enough, don't use supports. With small parts, it's about slow speeds with good bed leveling. And to be honest, some parts you can't print without scaring. You just need to sand them down.

Alright...so if you're printing something like a retaining pin with rounded ends, do you just print it lying flat on the print bed?

Straight up should be the best, but for some people sideways works better but it should work straight up.
You will probably still need to sand it afterwards tho
