How important is it to dimple/steak the base plate in to the castle nut groove when putting on the stock tube?

Oh what if you just blue lock-tite it?

Cheap insurance. I have one I put together and didnt stake as an experiment. A few thousand rounds and no issues. Another hundred and it may start spinning.

Is there a reason you don't want to stake?

I don't stake mine just because I tend to reconfigure things and I carry a wrench in my range bag anyway. Never had one back off on me yet, but if it does it's an easy fix. However, if I'll probably eventually stake them all.

Mine are not battle field weapons, where I'm stuck in a sea of sand or jungle with no means of working on my rig. I have a wrench. I do not stake mine, a dab of gun-tite and I call it good. Haven't had one work loose yet.

I always stake them. It is easy insurance and it does not stop you from taking it back apart. If you are damaging the endplate beyond reusing you may be staking a little too much.

I did some thing weird, so I had to stake, the stock wasn't straight so I had to re-do wiggle and man the Wheeler wrench sux! Couldn't find my reliable TAPCO.
