    Butter-soft chinesium screws and loctite are a match made in hell. Everyone defaults to blue medium strength, but for the tiny size of most gun screws people should be using low strength, and they find out too late.

      I think most of the time they come with locktite on the screws

        That's a nylon patch, it gets compressed when the screw is inserted and doesn't require the same force to break as a loctite application

      This problem pervades more than just guns. morons decide they want to counteract vibration, and decide "I MUST USE THE STRONGEST OPTION POSSIBLE!" without thinking why that might be a bad idea for more than four seconds.

        Sometimes the manufacturers who should know better do this, it's baffling. I had an ATI stock for my Benelli Super Nova years ago that had to be removed in order to disassemble the gun (because it blocked the trigger guard from coming out), and the thing came with RED permanent loctite and instructions that said to use it on the stock bolt. That shit is fricking ridiculous and there's no excuse for it

          A ton of electronics OEMs do this as well.
          I've found red loctite on fricking laptop screws a few times.
          Most use blue, but even that can be annoying.

            No offence, but I highly doubt it was actual permanent or high-strength loctite or you would never have got them out. A laptop screw would never survive the torque to break red loctite even with concentrated heat

              None taken, but it totally was. I actually had to break some screw posts to get the thing apart.
              This was many years ago (pre cameraphone era) so I don't recall the brand, but I think it was a Toshiba.
              The red shit I've encountered on more modern systems was almost certainly some chinesium knockoff horseshit, however.

    You need to use a screwdriver with the correct pitch anon. Also, apply more pressure, less rotation until it starts to move.

        No you don't. You need a quality tight fitting bit. Hammer it into the screw then do like anon said.

      the screw is stripped out, a bit won't make it work. the issue is that all gun screws are always made of chineseium

        Wrong. Yes it will. No it isn't, no they aren't, and even the ones that are it is irrelevant.

        Buy better fricking tools. Your TOOLS are shit so there is air between the bit and fastener. Your TOOLS are rounding over the fasteners, not the other way around. How the frick do you think they got in there without stripping moron?

        Stop acting like you know what's going on, you're the one that stripped a fastener with a shitty chinese tool. Probably some piece of shit that was included with something else you bought (from chiner).

        BUY BETTER TOOLS AND DON'T BE STUPID WHEN USING THEM. Get your head out of your ass, listen, and learn a lesson. Instead of being a pigheaded teenager who thinks he knows everything.

      also I have never seen a torx head strip when the correct bit is used, the screw itself will shear before the bit ever gets stripped. OP is moron

        There is a simple solution to this:
        1) Buy firearms and parts that are quality
        2) If step one is infeasible, cease buying guns and invest solely in professional development until you have enough money and sense to complete step one

        Never had a stripped screw for bases or rings. I don't know why you are ripping on others for aiRsHiT when your gun is built to lower standards that most airsoft stuff. Buy from reputatble companies (i.e. not on amazon) and build on known well built guns and you will not have this issue.

    Youcan use a thin saw to make it a flathead screwbit. Before you try screwing tap the back of the flathead screwdriver with a hammer and twist a little, tap again and twist a little (holding pressure down on the driver)

    you'll need to soft-hold the part with a vice with a bunch of towels

    I just hand snugged my CMR to the upper for storage when I stopped on my upper build and now the central countersunk screw with no loctite is stuck so badly I've twisted two allen keys, burned a quarter tank of MAPP and now have to get it out with a fricking pillar drill

    Buy better third party screws from now on if the ones that come with your optic or rail are trash. Save yourself the headache.
