Seems like the accu wedge to me, a solution looking for a problem. I don't see the harm in staking, binding, or whatever to the ket screws, but I wouldn't loose any sleep over it if I had an AR with unstaked,keyed, whatevered key screws. JMO

Is this worth worrying about when building one, or is this guy just looking for something to worry about?
I'm definitely no armorer, but the two images below look like there's a potential that a sufficient shear/torsion action would allow these allen heads to break free. Before someone starts pinging away....I would think one would have to know exactly how much force these allen bolts could exert on the surrounding surfaces.





I would think something like this would be better than the ^ toolmarks?

#2 looks like it might be a little light, however all you are doing is trying to prevent the screw from unscrewing. I have been working on M16s and ARs for 23 years. Some of these rifles were Vietnam era and I have only seen a couple of keys come loose when the staking was too light.
That last photo is excessive overkill to say the least.

You mean I can get rid of the safety wire that stays the castle nut on my stock too?

:laughing::laughing:


While not on GT, I like how a few members on ARF posting the need for some $30 donut/delta ring removal tool.



hmmm....

those ends sort of resemble a pair of rubber/plastic handles found on a pair of Channel Locs don't they.....but oh noes!!1 you better use the tool designed for just such a removal.

Then you'll need the $150 treatment to "fix" your bolt because you're caused a tempering issue. :flipoff2: Some people LOOK for shit to bitch and or be worried about.

Thought so. :D

Mainly, I posted this because I was looking forward to the replies I was going to get... ;)

I was just enjoying how much he loves his unobtanium staking tool from ReachAround Enterprises. Okay, I'll probably make sure to stake it when I build one, but a hammer and puch will do the job just fine. :rolleyes:

I think I'm going to buy the $240 neck and throat reamer. :p I wonder why discharging 5.56 in .223 chamber would cause some "common" problems?:laughing:

Give it a shot of Duracoat in OD or Desert Tan. Then it's worth $69.99 :flipoff2:

Aces, that's pure comedy gold right there. :D
