Once I get the gun out of DROS and get more of the parts I need, I will take you up on your offer. How you drilled and tapped the bolt assist knob to the bolt is brilliant. I like the bolt assist knob, and I want to install one on my gun, but I'm worried about it flying off the gun. did you drill and tap it yourself or did you have a gunsmith do it?
