Anybody know off hand what size hex wrench fits the bolt carrier key screws?

Thanks

I think that they're 9/64", but I've never had them off of a carrier before.

I was afraid you were going to say that. I was looking into a hex bit socket for the torque wrench and it just so happens that 9/64 isn't a common size.

Yep, it's 9/64. Brownells has them for $1.82 Part#080-185-010

Hope this helps.

If I strike out at ACE hardware, or local auto parts stores, I will have to order through brownells. Who would have figured sears wouldn't sell a 9/64 hex bit socket

Walmart sells a good set that are the 6 inch long style that includes all commonly used sizes with red and blue holders. I think it is a 32 peice set for $19.95. (Lowes sells the same set for $24)

That's a good call. I will check it out!
