    Been doing similar for years only with red loctite. They don't seem to last as long as the original "needle bearing" type pins, but do last longer than the current soft one piece pins that have been with the past few die sets I've bought.

    My buddy lost an M16 while on guard duty in port on his sub. Said the sling broke and the rifle was falling before he knew what was happening. He said he could still hear the sound of the rifle hitting the hull and splashing into the water. Of...

    If he has had the gas block off for some reason there is a good chance that he is correct. Misaligned gas block is a common issue along with leakage at the block, gas key and rings. If he takes off the gas block you can center the rear screw hole...

    Moleman- replied to a thread Is my mold worn out? in Cast Boolits
