BLINDMAN'S Super Awesome 98 Detent Mod of Epicness

So it was brought to my attention that individuals on the old clanker part of this site were interested in my 98 Detent Mod. I was originally trying cut orings as detents to use on my VM FAL (first and only VM), as the fingers I got with mine were crumbling.
So here it is...
You will need
1x 98 detent
1x oring (thickness of the detent)
1x tube of super glue
1x pair of scissors/knife.
1x VM68/PMI-3 feed block
So you will be glueing the detent as far forward as possible on the large part of the feedblock, and so that the widest part of the detent is glued mostly to the feedblock. (figure 1). You can glue it a little bit further back and up/down if you'd like, his is just what was easiest reference for me and worked well. I do get some roll forward, but have never had a chop yet. It was glued in a way that the detent would barely contact the bolt when fired, so it wouldn't get ripped off. It's gone through about a case so far and is still holding strong. You might want to watch you smallbore paint though, as it might not contact it. But I've tested it with zballs that bore out in the mid to low .670s and have had no rollouts or double feeds. The cut oring is to use as a spacer in the feedblock clamp (figure 2).
