Just received my BCG. I think the stake job could be better, what do you guys think?
Who cares it will do the job. You've been reading too much barfcom,
Looks fine to me. A little sloppy but it will still do what it's supposed to.
Your host isn't loading, someone should have staked the ethernet to the nic.
I'm not even sure what staking means.
Yeah, I'd first contact the manufacturer for a replacement. Then, cut it up into pieces.
In terms of staking, that looks horrible IMO.
I've personally never had a problem with my gas key coming loose. But then again, mines properly staked.
I wouldn't worry about the staking as you have bigger problems than that; your gas key screws weren't made by LaRue Tactical
who cares. mark it if you really care that much, shoot 500 rounds through it and see if it moves. if so, do it yourself or send it back to them and bitch.
This. Staking is serious business. It's not something you could do yourself, and there's no way I would shoot that rifle unless the bolt had been sent off to NOVESKE/LARUE/GRANT/MSTN and you had spent at least $500 to get it fixed.
I just jammed some popcorn in the key bolt holes on mine, and then covered it with silly putty. I figure that should hold.
should have got some Mighty Putty
Fix, Fill, Seal and repair fast and MAKE it LAST!
That's actually a pretty good idea.
That would make a great barfcom thread... Hey guys, I wanted to stake my gas key bolts but I didn't know how to do it right, so I just figured I'd stuff mighty putty around the bolt heads. Will it last?
it's a gun, not a fucking piece of artwork or furniture.
There is decent contact of the gas key material with the screws, it looks good.
