I can't tell you how much this little idea, using little orings to keep the screws from coming looks easily, has saved me soooooo much grief. Still compulsively check all my thumb screws on the field, but at least I don't have to worry about keeping replacements on hand all the time.

I spend more time checking screws than I do shooting it. I will have to try the o-rings. Thanks for the tip.

It's called the "Bushmaster Twitch" for a reason.

Legion bored a barrel for me but I haven't had time to use it. Everything looks good. He may still have another barrel or two available if you check with him.

I get laughed at but it still has all the original screws.

I enjoy playing with a gun older than most of the people I am playing against.

Teflon tape works great also.

For some reason, depending on the shape of the screws, some of the thumb screws require two little orings, just to give you heads up. teflon tape, blue loctite, both of these solutions also work. But the only permanent, fix and forget-about-it solution I've found has been the tiny oring thing. shoot me a pm if you need some of these small o-rings, I've got a bunch ready to fit 10-32 and similar sized setscrews

What do you mean by 'shape of the screws'?

Do you mean their condition or, there design? All of mine are factory and with the knob section, they get plenty of surface area to grab.

Yea, you'll be fine with the ones you are using - I was thinking more of my LAPCO nelson based guns.

LAPCO Thumbscrews


TASO Thumbscrews


I was just making a small, somewhat unimportant point. It's not a problem if you are using really thick orings. But see how in the first pic one of the screws slopes down to the threads, whereas in the second there is just a 90* angle to the threads. On both my new and original Ghosts, for instance, I have to use two orings (one tiny and one small) on some of the thumbscrews just because, with just one, they crawl up the slop. If there was a 90* angle there instead of the slope, they'd catch more or less regardless. This wouldn't be such a "problem" (minor at that of course) for me if I had thicker orings to use. But alas, I'm working with what I got and most of that is small valve/three-way orings.
