    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.
    Thanks

    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.
    Thanks

    Just checked mine to give you an answer: 3/32 inch allen.

    no scorn here 🙄 Better to ask and be sure than mess it up trying to use the wrong size.

    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.

    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. 🙂

    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
