Hi, I'm setting up a new rifle, with an LMT upper, Larue Aimpoint mount, and LMT BUIS. The Aimpoint is nice and tight, but there is an excessive amount of play to the BUIS. I can tighten it down, but it still rattles about. Any ideas?

The Aimpoint and the mount are fine; the problem is with the BUIS rattling against the upper.

I see the FDCC signature...hopefully I'll be out there next month!

Right...that worked part of the way, but I finally ended up cheating and just grabbing the thumbscrew with the channel-locks and torquing it down to no-rattle mode. his,
Thanks guys!

The coin and the channel locks weren't really getting along well (crappy pair of pliers, not terribly well designed for holding coins), so I was unable to keep a good flat grip on the coin. Instead, I gripped the knurled "thumbscrew" directly. I took care to not tighten it excessively, just to the point where the sight was secure.

Larue Aimpoint mount The Aimpoint is nice and tight

I believe you have already found the fix for this problem yourself.

Luck,

SD

Get the right tool for the job. I have a set of gunsmithing screwdrivers with interchangeable bits of all sizes. The largest bit was a good fit to my LMT BUIS. It is nice and tight on the upper with NO DAMAGE to the slot in the screw head.

Your Ok if they were tactical channel locks.

Hey, at least he's not one of those shrill "oh no, I scratched my rifle" homos...



Those scrathes aren't just normal scratches. They're couture.

Who's got the Sig line, that's not a scratch but a highly desirable patina?
