Sear's

Hey guys

will a standard sear work on a RT valve? Or do I need to switch out the sear when I put an RT valve in my mag?

Working on a project and just wondered .

Use the sear that belongs to the rail. The classic setup works with an RT-type valve.

Yup, the rail dictates whether it's a drop-in standard sear with loose pin or side-threaded-pin RT sear.

When you say RT valve do you mean an RT Pro or ReTro valve that are stainless steel/aluminum and hard anodized grey like Emag valves? Or a ss/alum RT "classic" valve that is a smaller diameter and uses a banjo bolt. Because the latter doesn't readily let you swap bodies and rails.

classic rt valves only work on classic rt rails and bodies although I have seen classic rt bodies cut down for other valves to work.

Up to this point they only work with clasic rails. But the sear dosn't matter still though?

it has to be the sear that goes with the rail. 68 automag and Minimag rails use a different sear than any Rt rail. RT Classic must use the RT Classic rail and sear as the valve uses a banjo bolt instead of a normal take down screw.

yes I understand that, but my dad has an awesome set of tools, and I have an idea . it will be awesome when its done, or it wont work at all, but its just an idea .

The Clasic RT is only linked to the clasic Sear because of the Banjo bolt set up?

The classic RT uses a gas-thru rail as well as the hollow takedown screw... and I'm pretty sure the sear is specific as well, it's supposed to have a hardened carbide tip where it catches the sear.



You can see where the air line attaches to the rail... it then goes through the field strip screw and into the valve.

And God replied, “Just wait and see the neighbors I shall inflict upon them.”

Yes I know, I have one sitting on my wall, trust me what I am going to do is either going to work or it wont, but I will post pictures once its done.

The sear thing made the buld a little easier.
