Could someone tell me the correct torque for gas key screw installation? Purchased a carrier from Brownells and it came without the key installed... Thank You !
According to TM9-1005-249-34, Bolt Carrier Key Scews are to be torqued to 35-40 Inch Pounds. After torquing, screws are to be staked with a prick punch to prevent them from loosening.
