Not part of the immediate plan but perhaps in the future it would work out.

This picture doesn't show the actual stake mark. But the needle bearings would be inserted in the roller the roller would the be placed in the lifter the axel would be pushed in the lifter between the bearing and staked. The stake would make the axel swell against the lifter walls and it wouldn't fall out.

In the context of that thread I assume that its the same concept only with a gun and not automotive parts.

Sorry if this is confusing ....its hard to explain in text format lol

Take that process and apply it to say.......barrel pins and you have staking. It can be used in several other places but reciever/barrel pins is the big one.
