M2 Headspace and Timing Gauge
 
Gents,

Looking for the safety message for the bad batch of Headspace gauges that came out in 2010 or 2011.

Thanks.

Have you looked on USASOC Safety homepage?

I'm in the stan and out in the boonies.. don't have a soc log in. trying to surf through thousands of weapons listings on AKO, when I get enough band width.

I can find on Army Safety, references to a 2008 report that involved the M3 gage being used to headspace the M2 resulting in an explosion. In that, they specify use of the correct gage (NSN, 5220-00-535-1217).

I haven't found anything about a bad batch or production lot.

May this be what you are thinking of?

Here is a link to a pdf I found: LINK....see page 3.

Streck-Fu,

Thanks for the link. I found the same notice.

But there was a bad batch of headspace and timing gages from one particular company. that's the memo I'm looking for.

Brother Monday I'll call and ask about it. I'll find it next week. Be safe

I searched all over the USASOC Safety portal...nada...but, that's not saying much....my "search-foo" is probably not strong enough..

I also asked the 18B tng developer....he hasn't seen anythin on it...

PM sent.
If you're talking about General Dynamics Armament and
Technical Products corrosion issue that may affect dimensions check your PM and I'll send you some expanded text on it that I got from a loggie, who I give a pass to because he's still a helluva loggie.
