Maybe not. I could be wrong. Been wrong before.
Honestly, Your BCG should still run with one screw tight as the key should still be tight against the carrier. But again, maybe not.
It's not running. I can't *feel* any play in the key, but it's definitely not running. Bolt moves, just refuses to feed or lock back on empty.
As for the LMT bit, I was already considering dropping it to a Carbine carrier as a test. Once I get the BCM carrier un-buggered, I still plan to try it. Until the carrier failure, though, it was running perfectly even on Tula .223 with an H2 buffer.

It's a first for me, too. Hoping to hear back from them by e-mail tomorrow.
