Default Restake plunger tube

The rear stake pin is loose.
What's the easiest way to restake that?

Should I do the front too?

Thinking about making a tool to do that

I use this one:

Unless you're set on making one yourself, just get one of these and be done with it. If only using it for one job, use it, then return it to Brownells.

Also, if the stake became loose, the inside of the holes were probably not recessed correctly, or at all. If you are going to stake it again, might as well do it right and get those holes recessed.

Then again if you make it yourself , you will always have a tool that is made from scrap pieces of metal and an old 1/8 drill bit and didn't cost anything except your knowledge and time. I personally think making your own tools when possible is a learning process that won't be forgot.. (And Saves Money)

hahah, internet is a wonderful place... People make judgement of others with no personal knowledge...

You guys have never taken advantage of company policies and returned things at Costco? Any other retailer? If something didn't wear right, function right, etc.?

I have returned sear jigs, non-square stones, etc. at Brownells, but I'm a tool-hoarder by nature if it performs correctly. For this staking tool specifically, where the single use of it, if done correctly, will not damage, or diminish its capability, so why not return it if you're only going to use it once? For $30 + free shipping I would keep it, but all options are on the table because that is Brownell's company policy.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone, and hopefully you won't have to return anything you didn't like from Black Friday/Cyber Monday purchases...
