Broken Charging Handle

#319

300 series stainless steel, such as 304 and 316, is only non magnetic after forming.
other words, in its non cut annealed state.
after it has been worked, cut, blasted ,machined, ect it can be magnetized…
300 series as long as it has been cold worked, yes, it can.

No Buck, my plan is to epoxy it to the head of the return spring. Just slowly slide that sucker in, find the hole and…

Wait, what was I talking about again?

as long as you could get your orientation correct, and de oil the spring, you could use rtv as well… give it a lil shock absorbing feature, JB might crack apart under repeated recoil once cured…

@GOBLIN good call, I was concerned about it being to brittle. As far as orientation you can twist, turn spring itself just as easy as a screw driver. (And I don’t need to pack a tube of PTFE and a long screw driver in my range bag.)

I am pretty busy signing up new students, building new barricades, and (now reordering my new S2Ks) but when I get time I will address this issue. :dizzy_face:
