    AR, mine also the standard version with standard stock. There will be an “allen cap” right on top. It is the only screw/bolt you will see on the top side of the whole rifle (except for sight screws). It is a small and short little thing! If it loosens till falling out it will get lost easily.

    I use the newer Glock mags. Those 2 stovepipes were the only feeding problems in about 1300-1500 rounds. It must have been that loose screw.

    I also enjoy open sighted plinking from time to time. Witj the open sights. 100 mm plates at 50 m keeps on ringing…..

    Thanks.

    I will look and apply some Locktite.

    Looked up the correct name:

    Barrel block screws

    1 on top
    2 on sides, these two behind stock.

    When dissasembling for cleaning I will apply locktite to them as well.

    Regarding cleaning: How far do you strip for cleaning the bolt? I am a lazy gunowner with regards to cleaning. Have only removed the bolt once for proper cleaning. I just spray a bit of ballistol onto moving parts from time to time, a decent spray, and wipe of the excess. I load with S121 and VVN340 and the bolt stays clean enough.

    The barrel I clean after about every 300-400 rounds.

    I've been looking at these for a while, yesterday I popped in at S&O Stellenbosch and checked out a few long guns....started off at the lever actions, then to the amazing CZ 457 with a MDT stock.....then looked at some handguns. About 20mins later the sales guy said check this out it came in last week, its the Ruger Back packer, PC carbine with a magpul set up. 5 minutes later I started with the paperwork, the quality and the set up is really spot on the money. Paid R26k, considering the CZ scorpion is the same price I opted for the takedown feature and it felt less plastic than the scorpion. Maybe I'm just biased because I am a Ruger fan boy at times! Now the licensing wait begins.

    Congratulations on a great buy!

    There is nothing “feeling plastic” on the Ruger when compared to a Scorpion! You made the right choice.

    Hope licensing is quick.

    I also chose the Ruger PCC from a bunch of PCCs.

    Sometimes the notion of having bought a 16” 9mm makes me furious, but all that goes away when I’m actually behind the gun. Ridiculously accurate and built like a tank.
