The best way to make an AR reliable is to trade it in for an M1A, or a Mini if you want to keep 5.56

Looks like it isn't enough, right?
Thats sad. It would have taken the same amount of time to do it right. No attempt would have been better than that. Ridiculous. POS company.

That is pretty piss poor staking , I have seen better jobs with a punch and hammer . I would pull those bolts out and replace them with a grade 8 and retorque to proper specs of 55 Inch Lbs. before you take it some where and have it re-staked, if you dont have the tools let the man behind the counter do it any good gunsmith will have the proper tools
