    Opinions on Aluminum Screws

    Has anyone ever used these? http://www.kilaproducts.com/product....sid=62&pid=215 With all the custom anno'ed mags out there seems like someone should have. Are they any good? Do they hold up?

    Also, how are the Killa detents? Any discernible difference between them and AGD detents?

    I'd be wary on a mag, since you're not just holding your frame on to a body.

    the detents are good. they are a magne detent where you have 2 detents are pushing against each other so you have positive resistance and you don't have to worry about spring tension. they are also serviceable so you can fix any problems.

    I use brass screws on one of my frames for the grip panels. I wouldn't use anything other than steel or titanium for things that will have greater stress on them

    What's the worse that could happen?

    Aside from your valve rocketing through two layers of drywall, which happened that one time I was drunk and unscrewed the valve while it was still pressurized.

    Because that could totally happen. Pretty sure that would kill a person.

    My thoughts exactly. I've seen terrible things happen between the valve and body.

    Rocketing. Through. Drywall.

    BTW, a ton of toothpaste + spackle = your security deposit back.
