I did a search first and couldn’t find it but I know it must be here somewhere.
So I’ll apologize for asking a question that’s already been answered.
What is the size of the Grub Screw that holds the end cap to the frame?
I just got my new TalonSS and the screw won’t go all the way in to hold the end cap.
I had it aligned properly with the hole in the cap and when I checked it I could see that the threads need to be cleaned up ,so I’d like to run a tap through it to clean them out.
I don’t want to wait for a warranty return,I want to get going with my new rifle.
But it is aluminum so I want to be extra careful and not mess it up.

I bookmarked this one for fast reference. Good Luck and Welcome to the forumApril 12, 2008 at 10:40 pm #37659walkonkingParticipant
Take a look here it should be listed somewhere in there.April 13, 2008 at 4:15 pm #37683
I’m not feeling too bright as I’ve looked three times through the data there.
I can’t find it.
I know I’ll have to suffer the scorn of whoever points it out to me, but if anyone knows would they please tell me?
Maybe it’s called something else and I ‘m not making the connection.

Just checked mine to give you an answer: 3/32 inch allen.April 13, 2008 at 4:20 pm #37686
no scorn here 🙄 Better to ask and be sure than mess it up trying to use the wrong size.April 13, 2008 at 4:26 pm #37688
Thanks much shrpshotr28.April 13, 2008 at 7:53 pm #37709
If anyone else has this problem,a 10-32 NF tap is the one to use .
Just be careful and remember it’s only aluminum, not steel.April 14, 2008 at 3:10 am #37728
oops, 😕 guess you meant thread size/pitch as opposed to the size of allen wrench to use. Glad you got your situation figured out anyway. 🙂April 14, 2008 at 1:08 pm #37737cygnus-x-d82Participantquote trh53:
not only aluminum….but extremely soft aluminum….you have to make sure you run it absolutely straingt in there…a little cant and you will mess up the threads and it will still feel like nothing is wrong
