Paint was a good tip, never would have thought of doing thatI like the suggestion to mark the screws in their tightened position. Had I done so I wouldn't have lost one already!
I also put two tiny squares of regular masking tape over the light sensor port. It seemed like my astigmatism was blooming up the dot in both bright daylight and in darkened rooms, so I sort of 'adjusted ' it via the tape. So far, it works well. To go even dimmer, add another square...
According to the manual or a parts list I read the screws for the Hex wasp to mount to the Hellcat are metric-What happens when the mounting screws for the Hex wasp included in the Hellcat with OSP and wasp do not work? They are either short, not thick enough or both. I'm not talking about the 2 screws that are mounting the plate. Those I know are too short. Talking about 6#-32 screws.
Thank you for the reply. I emailed SA awaiting a response.According to the manual or a parts list I read the screws for the Hex wasp to mount to the Hellcat are metric-
#4 X 0.7mm (threads) about 7.5 mm long. If you need some the best way to get the right ones is to email Mike at SA customer service. I lost one and he graciously sent me a new set. I think they are custom, I found some generic #4 X 0.7mm that were 8mm long, these might foul your striker or ejector spring...
Best to call Springfield.
Good luck to you.
No- by FAILING to torque them to 15 in lbs. The silly little wrench that came with the gun didn't work very well (for me).By using blue thread locker on screw threads, torquing screws to 15inch pounds and then letting gun set for 24 hours, the screws loosened up? I still check them periodically, no issues here.

You do want to mark them as people described above.
