Remember back in December when I complained about not being able to get the OEM mount off that Primary Arms 5x?

Well, I complained about it in the customer review section too.

I see today that they've added, "NOTE: To remove the allen screws holding the base to the body, we recommend applying some heat directly to the screws in order to soften the factory thread locking compound. Several seconds with a lighter does the trick and the allen screws will come out much more easily." to the product description now.

I was not alone in my complaining about the difficulty in removing those screws.

I will say it over and over, slotted head screws are superior to all other interior drive screws in terms of how much torque you can apply.  All others compromise that strength for size, to speed manufacture or to prevent the owner from removing them.
