Just got my RRA Varminter upper last week and noticed the carrier key screws are staked very lightly. In fact, it appears no metal was pressed into the screw heads. Anyone else see this type of staking with RRA?

Should I stake the screws myself? I have a feeling the answer is yes, I just have never done that and don’t want to screw it up.

why don't you take all of your ARs apart and look at how they are staked?

Bookhound, RRA might be the better folks to ask.

Thanks. I did take all my other ARs apart and the Bushy stakes are definitely pushing metal into the screws. One of my RRA’s looks similar to the Bushy stakes. Seems like just this new one is so light metal from the key does not protrude into the screws. I’ll call RRA just to be safe, but I’ll probably just end up staking them myself.

I have a new RRA as well. (first AR) I would like to check for this condition. Can someone explain what is meant by "staked"? What am I looking for? Thanks. [edited for clarification.]
