Just bought an upper w/complete BCG. When I checked out the BCG, this is what I found. Hopefully the picture is clear enough to show the problem.

I am planning on talking to the seller about this.

It's a business, outside of the state. Not going to name them yet. Until I find out if they will do something to correct this. Sure, I probably could do it myself, but buying something which is not properly "built" kinda frosts my chaps.

Just was watching the School of the American Rifle video were he "autopsies" a Fail Zero bolt that...failed. As he is taking it apart he mentions that it has "YFS"" (?) fasteners holding the gas key on to the BCG body. Like mine. He does not favor these.

I've got a spare BCG with YFS keys that looks just like that. I think i remember where I ordered it from online.

Also, I've seen other internet pics of of the exact same BCG with YFS keys staked the same.

So I wonder if it is a QC matter, or if thats just how it is.
