SOCOM 16 Stripper Clip Insert Set Screw Size

Location:

2 posts in this topic

After reading a recent Firearms News article by James Tarr, thought I would convert my conventional stock to the Archangel one and use the Vortex Venom red dot that mounts to the stripper clip guide via a Midwest Industries mount. This mount requires removal of the stock stripper clip insert, which has a small Allen wrench set screw holding it in place. Of course the allen wrench supplied with the MI mount doesn't work, and none of the 46 wrenches in my Wheeler Engineering kit fits. Does anyone know what size this set screw is so that I can find the proper tool to remove it?

Times like this make me miss Mike Todd, may he rest in peace.

Come to find out, it is a tapered roll pin that must be driven out from the bottom. FYI, Springfield Armory never returned email or responded to web request- friend at work reached to someone that specializes in M1As.
