    Heard about some Bushmasters having issues with gas keys not being properly staked.

    Took a look at mine and it seems better than the "bad examples" I've seen, but still not great...

    Should I bother with it? I am very comfortable doing stuff like this so it's not a big deal for me to do it...:dunno:

    Looked a little weak to me so I went ahead and beefed it up a little...

    Looks better now and whats funny is that you got it fixed before anybody even responded to your thread. Some people get way too much heartburn about something you can fix in a couple minutes.

    The before looked barely passable. The after, well the after was much much better.
