    The bottom right stake could be punched one more time for the sake of symetry, but over all it looks solid, hex screws will not likely move.

    Proper staking of the screws that secure the gas key on a bolt carrier are uber important. So I would agree that the lower right one needs more attention.

    Did you build that BCG, or did it come from the factory that way?

    Forgot to mention that the proper torque on the screws is very important too. Current torque spec is in the 55 inch/lb range for each screw.

    Torque spec according to US Mil standards for bolt carrier key screws = 35 INCH pounds to 40 INCH lbs.

    1st post is fine, 2nd is way to much...

    The point of staking is the same as locktight...
    It should take X amount of inch pounds to remove them...

    But staking it not ment to make them un removeable

    No I didn't build the BCG in my original post. It came out of a DPMS.

    DPMS is notious for not staking their rifles, I am told.
    I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do. I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do.

    Really, from a DPMS? Frankly I'm impressed.
