    Wtb scar 17 parts

    Need a 17 complete BCG, along with at least 6 Barrel Retention Screws. Anyone have, or know someone other than MGW and Stryker, (both out of stock) that may have some availability?

    Thanks!

    Delete the plastic teardrops on the side and just use standard flat head screws that you fully tighten.

    The custom torque adjusted screws were developed based on a USGI requirement that you be able to do a barrel/caliber swap in the field and have the rifle hold zero. So consistent torque was important, leading to the custom bolts with serrated edges and spring detents, so they would hold, even though they were not fully tight.

    However, since multi cal barrels hardly exist, and we can afford to re-zero after a barrel swap, having the original torque control screws is not a requirement.

    Slight correction: They are M5 x 8mm, however the heads are 60 degrees, not the industry standard 90 degrees. So to get the shoulders to bear properly, you have to grind standard bolts. I'll have the fixture to do it in the next few days and will show some pictures of what I'm thinking.
