  1. The Noveske QD bug is spreading. LOL
  2. It will show you the way. You'll want to make sure you order that new stock retaining/slave nut before hand.
  3. Glad I could help. 😁 I noticed they actually have them in stock now.
  4. Thanks guys. One thing I've noticed is that co witness with the SRO is like lower 1/4 not lower 1/3. The front sight is just visible through the SRO window. Still functional but barely.
  5. Thank you sir. I picked up the QD plate up at Optics Planet. From what I heard they can be tough to find. When I ordered it was on "back order". I think I still received it in about 2-2 1/2 weeks. It takes a little work to replace in the stock but totally doable with time, patience and tools. SD's tutorial made it much easier.

  7. It seems I can never get the lighting right. I prefer natural light but that’s hard for me to do where I live. I have to watch out for the knee jerk neighbors.
  8. Alright, alright. I’ll work on it.
  9. Yesterday after about two hours of fitting forearms my M4 was completed and finally brought to life. Or, brought back to life I should say! It's been a 10 month process with a lot of ups and downs. These downs ended up having me reassemble the entire M4 essential on my own. NP3 plated in and out and many aftermarket upgrades. I certainly learned a lot and know much more about this platform than I ever did. StrangerDanger and Vertcofiremarms were sounding boards throughout my journey and that was very much appreciated. I want to put out what an awesome individual Stranger Dan
  10. The trigger guard pin would pull right out of the receiver.

    Is there a reason to remove this ring besides refinishing?
  12. 25 inlbs felt about right. I could feel the force it took to remove them because I goofed and had the light mounted on the wrong side. I've been doing the decreasing thing. I have acetone but I've been using alcohol lately on fasteners. Also used the loctite 243. 36 inlbs for the IWC mount felt right at the upper end of the torque limit. The IWC instructions call for a max of 40 inlbs but I figured I'd back it down a bit since I used loctite. I've used the sharpie trick on a couple of rifles. Silver/Gold depending on the color of your work piece. I replaced the screws in
  13. That's what I was initially thinking. 25 inlbs no more than 30. However, I felt 30 was pushing it with the aluminum light body. I don't think there are heli-coils in there. If anyone has ever had an older Aimpoint Micro you know the concern.
  14. TY sir. That gives me a point of measurement. I plan on using the thread locker as well.
  15. How much is everyone tightening the IWC screws to these light bodies? I don't want to strip the aluminum threads in the body. I know most go by hand but I historically have a bad habit of over tightening stuff. So I've been known to get obsessed with torque specs or at least a ballpark number etc.
  16. Ty sir. That makes sense to me.
  17. For sale - new, never used or inserted FFT 1/2” Steel NP3/H2O charging handle. $80.00 shipped. Payments accepted: PP F&F, Venmo and Postal MO.
  18. I don’t think that the orientation really matters as it appears the spring will capture the Axil pin regardless of its position. Looking at the parts diagram it’s really hard to tell which way it’s really suppose to go. It appears that it should be in the format of a capital letter G. Unlike what is shown in the attached photo. Does anyone know with certainty?
  19. Interesting thought. It might look pretty cool with wood furniture.
  20. That’s what I originally thought. It looks like copper anti seize. Of course it would have no place there. You know, it looks exactly like the bronze colored grease you find in a new Glock.
  21. Interesting. Maybe they are at capacity in terms of manufacturing.
  22. I've been trying to get an M600 backbone light body for almost 2 months. I know these are busy times for the industry but it seems like a long time for IWC. Normally I wouldn't be too concerned but when I emailed them about my order a couple weeks ago they never responded. I just simply asked if they received the order. I'm curious if the IWC folks are doing ok over there?

    It's interesting how everyone is tapping out the gas plug pins. When I compressed the springs my pins just fell out. No tapping needed. Maybe I compressed the spring more or perhaps it was due to the lack of carbon build up?
