Had my Bushmaster AR at the range the other day. Was shooting from the 100 (rather poorly I might add) when the LMT BUIS I use decided to fall off. A very proud moment when the rangemaster handed it to me. shocked Hadn't really taken notice before but the design is not all that bright. One side grips the rail and the other is held on by tensioning down a knurled tightening knob that is finished but has what appears to be a non-working slot for a screw driver. No matter how hard I crank it down I can still pull the sight off. Anybody know the trick to keeping this on? Edwin?

Loose LMT BUIS, common problem.
Two possible solutions, first take a quarter (or a nickel if you're cheap like Lumpy) and a pair of pliers and tighten it down till the coin bends, it won't come loose then (this is WES GRANT's Mil-Spec way of tightening them). Of course make sure the clam is oriented correctly first.

Second, replace the thumb nut with something you can get a wrench on.



Also, guys, here's a shot of my new 16" Recon.

Edwin:

WES GRANT?
Clam?

Thanks for the reply. I tried a coin but that middle piece (it's not quite a screw) keeps one from getting a good fit with a coin or driver.

Where does one get the parts shown in that fix? Does LMT have anything they've rigged up to deal with this?

Also, SWEEET rifle. Russ

Wes runs MSTN (mid South Tactical)

You can use a 1/4-28 locknut after removing the thumbnut, the end of the stud is peened so it may take some effort to get it off (just twist it real good).
Or, put a thin peice of rubber under the sight on the rail, it should tighten up with the thumbnut then.

Edwin: thanks. What is that piece of metal in your post?

DD: sorry, missed your post. No, Tim wasn't with me. smile Things mechanical are vexing me in all areas. Last night the 52" DLP Mitsubishi went dark. Thank goodness for the 5 year warranty I bought. Freezer in the basement died recently too. Had to put a new fuel filter, fuel pressure regulator and fuel pump in the Jeep.

The clamp, that goes between the thumbnut and the rail & sight.
Is that what's missing?
No way in heck it'll stay on without that.
Call LMT Tuesday, they'll be glad to send you another one.

Yes, I don't have one of those!!!!!!!!!! I don't think it came with one. Now I know why I can't keep the damn thing on and why the post is so high up in the screw slot that I can't get a coin in to tighten it.

Thanks. Here's what I should have had.

See, the reason it broke and wasn't fixed right away was because I wasn't invited to the class.


If you really don't want it to move, set it where you want, and run a bolt straight through the side of the sight into the rail, or maybe through the top depending on the design. Or use a long roll pin, that way you could pound it out the other side if you wanted to remove the sight. I'll have to look at it next friday and see exactly how they work though.

Thanks Tim. See edit to post above. Also, at this point I'll probably just rap the F-er in duct tape!

Alcohol and spelling don't mix. Er, that would be "wrap," not rap.

Pretty funny Hanns. Sure, I'll bring it out and we can set up a pool over which one of my guns will break first.

Dorian: I'll bring my P229 so if it breaks it breaks on the range and not on duty. frown At this rate I'm shelving the M8 out of fear something will break in it. mad

Sure! That will be fine. I figure that should be no problem for you to break at all, I mean it is just one of those Sig’s. laugh After all we are talking about a person who broke one of those completely unbreakable Glock thingies, right? wink

OK, now that we have solved the great mystery of which gun Russ is going to break at the range next, cool I say we start a pool for how long it will Russ to break that Not-HK-gun of his (Oh, right - one of those Sig ones). I think I’ll take “30 Minutes”. I’m still in for 5 bucks. Who else is in?

I even suggest that if he manages to make it all the way through the range session without breaking his gun (what are those cheap things again? Sigs? Right, I’ll get it next time), that we donate the money to him for the repair bills he keeps racking up.
cheers
