Sent my scout back to SAI 2 weeks ago. Had to BANG the bottom of my CMI magazines to seat, magwell way too tight rear and rear sides. Lurking around here has been advantageous, got a sadlak guide waiting now, hated that kinked spring hanging out of oprod.

If your SAI had a new plastic/nylon style stock then magazine well tightness is probably due to the soft stock bulging in the magazine well if the trigger group is tight. I had to file the inside of a SAI stock recently that had tight magazine well fitment.

Not the kind of comment I was expecting, but thanks! I must have had a good hair day.

Thanks, Tony. That cleared up some fitment problems I have been having with my scout. You might want to consider not showering with Muppermeat4me around-not implying anything but you know-lol

Of course I'm sure that was sarcasm, but in case some noobies didn't know.

Good one SGT, I took the bait!

Thanks again Tony, good video.

I also learned a lot from your shimming video. It removed all the doubts about how to do the shimming and made two rifles shoot way better.

Thanks from tonyben
