    Yes the screw is too small for the reciever...which leads me to believe the hole was drilled too large. Sloppy tolerances. So now i have a complete rifle that literally wont stay together, even tried another one of these screws still loose. So now i have to track down a screw thatll fit, lucky me, worst $1000 i ever spent.

    How hard would it have been for them to drill a hole through from side to side for a regular style takedown pin.

    I mean, there's enough material in the piece that protrudes down from the upper for them to drill a hole in from the bottom for a 1/4" bolt. What made them think they couldn't drill a hole through sideways and do it right? Even if they had to make the correct length of takedown pin.

    As a bonus, by replacing the bolt takedown system with a cross ways push/pull pin they could have actually made a magwell that wasn't angled up towards the front so much.

    That stupid little bolt is the main downfall of the whole design.

    Not everyone wants pins as they take away from a very sleek and efficient design.

    Correct as I had a few delivered with them missing. I purchased the correct size helicoils and installed them without issue.

    If posters need them installed they can PM me.

    Note: the grip screw is identical however the bolt is shorter then the grip bolt.
