May I simply buy the extended latch and replace the present latch on my MR762 charging handle, using the spring and pin that is available to me right now? Or do I have to buy a whole new CH to accomplish that.
Do I have to purchase the staking tool when I replace my buffer tube to as I install the G28 adjustable stock system? Or can I stake it myself using...?
Um...huh? Just looking for technical information..no idea what you are talking about.
you can swap the C-handle latch yourself, provided you can find a vendor for the MR762 extended/tac latch. I suppose you could re-use the roll pin, but I'd suggest a new one. I'm of the opinion roll pins are a 1-time use item. At any rate, I did the same thing with my 416 latch.
I'm pretty sure you can stake your new receiver extension sans the HK staking tool. It is ridiculously expensive, and I don't know that I've ever seen it in stock anywhere?

Despite wanting the same, I couldn't stomach the cost of just the latch and certainly not the entire charging handle. On my range day next weekend, I plan on just taking the CH from my MR308A3 which came with a larger latch and putting it on my MR308. With an ARMS BUIS and Eotech on the rail, there is not a lot of room to grab the OEM tiny latch. If you find a well priced latch, post it here too.
Several guys on here have used other hardened steel objects to stake their lowers. Somebody is pretty proud of their HK products to ask what they are for the HK staking tool.
