How would you re-set the piston nut? Mine was loose when I bought it and after 200 rounds was loose enough to not operate the bolt 100% each shot. Can I just lock tite the nut threads? There is a tiny hole that leads to the threads but there is nothing in it and I can't see any sign of staking.

I have been told Loctite so I gave it a shot. I have only fired about 200 rounds after and it seemed to hold just fine.

The proper way is to tighten it with the proper wrench then stake it.

Loc-Tite is worth a try, worse comes to worse you just do it the right way.

How is it staked? All I see is a hole that leads to the threads of the nut. Willing to order the wrench, but want to shoot Wednesday....
