    This offer is going to be a huge mess here at my shop so this needs to be on a diffrent invoice for tracking and such, I can not combine them together. PM me and we will figure it out.

    Everyone above should have got a PM with the instructions except those with a full mail box.
    Post here if you were missed.

    This is still open for more rails.

    Wasn't me, but I do put set screws in the sightrail holes on my Emag/RTP rails. Sorry to hear that Luke, did it ruin a mill?

    Didn't kill anything but the final product kind of sucks. The only way I can think of removing them is in an anno tank.

    Get some reverse drill bits. Use the smallest one you have, make a hole then use a larger one and go very slow. Usually the larger one will catch on the smaller hole and that might turn out the rest of the screw. There's no pressure on the so it should just come right out.

    I didnt catch them before the rail was milled, the only way to get them out now is an anno tank.

    Uggh, I hope I was not the culprit. I was in a rush when I grabbed the rails and threw them in the box... If so I'll make an additional donation to the save AO fund...

    ding-ding we got a winner.

    No worries, my biggest concern was on the pump slot. I was afraid it would break the tiny end mill, but didnít.

    I was able to sand out the chatter marks on the side of the rail, but the left over set screws can not be removed without going in the anno tank. (Anodizing will burn them out.)

    It looks like there will be plenty of raw metal after this. Would anyone want to see if we could find an anodizer willing to do a batch of gloss black? I'm assuming most will have it ano'd gloss black and it might make things simpler for Luke to ship most of them to one guy, and it will probably be cheaper in the long run.
