Who makes the carrier?
Thats good staking from some other kinds that i have seen. Some companies gas keys don't even look like they have been staked at all. That'll be fine. Some people seem to be a bit finnicky with their gas keys though.
i can't speak for all noveske's but mine is not staked like that.
this thread claims "early noveske" were staked like that. i'm curious to know why they changed as mine looks just like the colt in their pics and just like my 6920
From the TM:
the metal of the key should be drifted inward, and stretched over the top of the head of the screw, towards the center of the hole, and be of sufficient measure to keep the screw head in the key, even if the head of the screw was sheared even with the top of the threaded portion of the screw.
that is definitly not staked great.
will it hold it in, if the screw wasnt tight?
BTW, the rifle kept working fine. I discovered the lost bolt head during cleaning. BSW
and it's a cmt
Thanks for the link. That was very informative. Pics are great showing the differences.
