Finally got enough clearence with minor sanding on the handl lower for my scar17 so it functions with the super scar trigger pack, but the bolt catch spacer hit the floor rolled across the room and into the basement sump drain... being plastic its not retrievable by magnets. *sigh*

What purpose does this thing serve and do I really need one??

Thanks but what function does it serve??

It doesn't touch anything but the catch and doest contact anything else. I know the space its in is for a full auto part. The retaining clip prevents the catch from backing out. The scar 16 has an extra retaining clip the 17 doesn't have on that side and its the only thing I can think of a use for.

So is it just an uneeded scar16 part that has no purpose in a 17??

I called fnhusa just now about this part. They said it was a part that absorbed vibration... Im not sure how it makes any difference.
