Question on the cocking lug cap screw in the bolt

Postby AlanMcD » 19 Mar 2016, 22:12

Does anyone know the size of the cap screw that goes into the bolt from the underside, that pulls back on the hammer to cock the gun when we pull the bolt back (on non-MCT guns)?

Mine is OK now, but I recently had an incident in which I must have forgot to rotate the bolt handle down after cocking and loading, and when I fired the bolt was driven rearward with a lot of force (plus a VERY loud shot that startled me). I expect that the impact could have started a stress fracture that could lead to the cap screw failing at some point.

I would like to order a few spares to have on hand, and since I am in the US I expect Daystate would charge a pretty penny to send them over here . . .

Thanks in advance!

Doubtless you have considered AoA? I doubt that any damage will have been done, make sure you get some spare pellet probe O rings.
