    Would you consider this gas key to be properly staked? If not, what is incorrect about the stake job that was done? Thanks!

    The staking seems a touch too heavy. This can cause as many problems a not staked or not properly staked.

    But like I always say about AR stuff...just go shoot it. If it causes problems its not a big deal to fix or replace.

    That looks fine...
    the real question is are the bolts the correct head size..

    The rifle runs fine. I've put about 3k rounds through it so far with no issues. This however, is my first black rifle- and with some of the threads discussing improper staking... I thought I would ask people more knowledgeable with the platform.
