Default Just broke my Colt LE6920CMP-B out of jail!



SOOOO much lighter than my Colt CR6720 and love the Magpul furniture (need to figure out how to change the peep hole on the rear sight). Only problem is now I actually need to buy a real scope for the 6720 since I put the Vortex Strikefire on the 6920 (the co-witness is great btw). And the fact that my Noveske end plate didn't show up on time so I can't mount the MS3 sling yet.

Speaking of the Noveske end plate I've heard talk of the castle nut being "staked". What is involved with that? I bought a tool to unscrew the castle nut but wasn't clear on the "staking". Thanks in advance.

Congrats on the new colt...

Staking is simply punching a dimple in your end plate to secure your castle nut.

Thanks for the info. So this is staked:



I have this punch kit, http://glockstore.glockstore.com/del...-and-punch-set . Can I stake my castle nut with it (sorry for the noob questions) or do I need a square punch?

A regular round punch will do, but if you want to be fancy, get some square ones. All staking does is to prevent the castle nut from backing off on it's own.

Thanks again . After spending 10+ minutes trying to back off the factory staked castle nut (ended up shearing off the staked parts) the install went smoothly. Trouble I'm having now is that I can't stake the Noveske QD receiver end plate (new thread started here).

Overall pleased with the end plate and how my MS3 sling attaches to it.

I spent 3 full days shooting 1200 rounds through that same rifle in 115 degree heat, super fine sand in the mags and all in the reciever. Never cleaned rifle, just added more oil.... and still never had one malfunction. Your gonna love it.

Congrats on the sweet Colt. I almost grabbed one at Turners the other day. I might someday just to have the pony roll mark in the stable.
