    classic RT sear question

    I am trying to ressurect a classic RT that has been sitting unused for about 12 years. Thought I lost it in a move, but found it this winter. The sear is chipped on the bolt catch, see picture if I can get them to upload. I believe it is a carbide tip. I am looking to replace the sear and came across one for a RT Pro. I have read mixed answers on here, just wondering if this will work for the classic. Some have said no, some have said just adjust the rod. None of the sears I find have the carbide tip, so I'm assuming AGD has moved away from them. ( been out of the game for a while...)
    Thanks in advance for any help!

    I believe you are correct. I think the original sears had the , what I call, "brazed" sears. I've never seen one that wasn't an original. I think they figured out they wouldn't hold up due to being brittle. I've currently got one in the same condition, and its about to get replaced with a RT Pro sear.

    Great! Let me know if the RT Pro sear does, or doesn't work. Would love to use it, don't want to spend too much money as I am (probably) going to sell this when I get it up and running.

    Yes, the RTPro sear is what you need. The type you have were discontinued because they did what yours does or in the case of the one I had, the carbide piece actually just seperates from the main sear. You will have to most likely adjust the sear rod to the proper length. If you buy a new one, contact Tuna or AGD directly and they have them preadjusted.

    Thanks for the input. Can I just match the length to my current sear (the broken one?)

    That would make sense. I think there is a sticky somewhere around here as well with tolerances in it.
