I just got hold of a used Smith Enterprise carrier that does not have a gas key on it. Where do I find a gas key, and is there anything specific I should know about puting it on. I did read Tweak's staking thread, but is there anything more I should know?

Also, what is the differences in carriers. I thought I saw a thread once that explained it, but I could not find it again, Anone help?

Thanks

Replace the bolt carrier key using red Loc-Tite as a gasket and torque the hex screws to 35-40 inch lbs. and stake them in place.

That is the book answer, and a correct one. You can take this a step further, and lap the surfaces to ensure they are perfectly flat and seal best. If you arent already familiar with the process... then dont worry with it.
