They love antelope blood & guts too. I have to brush them away from where I'm working, but they seem intoxicated and don't attack/sting me.

They're more prevalent in warmer weather.

I've seen this before. It has more to due with where the ejector is hitting the case than with the shape of the charging handle. Hits further to the inside send the brass forward (1-2 o'clock) and...

The sear spring shouldn't have anything to do with your issue.

Here's two areas to look at:

I've seen pics of a Ruger 22/45 Lite barrel that failed. But that's really just a liner suspended in a perforated shroud.

I tried superglue, gorilla glue, Loktite "for plastics", and a couple others that failed to hold before I got the epoxy that worked.

I did not try the Goop or E6000.

Loose AR-7 Barrel Nuts

One of the common complaints I read about AR-7s is the barrel nut constantly coming loose and accuracy tanking as a result. I don't know if Henry has fixed the problem on their version, or not, so...

I think they typically go toward the high end to be certain there's no chance of slam fires. It sucks because the high end allows for more light strikes.
