    Put down the Dremel!

    A customer recently purchased a high quality Bolt from us. Today, he sent us an e-mail stating that he was unhappy with the Bolt's quality due to the fact that he could not get a Cam Pin to pass all the way through the hole in the Bolt.

    In order to "Fix" the problem, he took a Dremel tool to the back side of the Bolt and opened it.

    Before you try and "Fix" a problem, please make sure you know what you are talking about FIRST.

    Pic of a Colt bolt and Cam Pin. Note how the Cam Pin will not go all the way through the Bolt.

    Sadly, this is not shocking.

    I have been asked to point out that I am Magpul's photographer. I have also done work for 95 or so manufacturers within the firearm community, my work has been used for web, catalog, banners, magazines, covers, etc. I have also shot work for the US Military where it has been used in training aids. I am prior service and a full time LEO.


    I also shoot and write for Military Times. My primary focus is weapons, accessories and related equipment reviews. Manufacturers can reach me through any of the boards. If you have something new, let me know.

    Ya, I know, but what is shocking is that the guy is arguing with me that I am WRONG.

    Nothing more dangerous than having just enough knowledge to get in trouble.

    So was this an email to advise that the bolts were 'out of spec' but he figured out a fix? I wonder where that bolt is right now...

    Re: Put down the Dremel!

    Polymorpheous's sig line came to mind when I read this.

    So did the guy shoot his AR after his little modification?

    Yes and to chastise me for allowing this Bolt to get out of our shop (though I didn't make it).

    The advice above is worth exactly what you paid for it.
