Same for me, My cotter pin is getting bent and the FP is a bit beat up. I'm shooting Sig 308 match 168gn, with a gas port setting of 1 (with suppressor) and it seems like my gun is over gassed. I have a heavier buffer on order to see if it correct my cycling issues. I was also thinking of getting another gas regular and drilling a smaller hole in the 0 position.

The cotter pin on my SR556 was bent after the first 100 rds. I pulled it and replaced it with a real steel pin. No worries since then and my firing pin is in good shape.

Just joined the forum doing a search for the cotter pin issue.
I've had the same issues with my SR762. Ruler sent me a new cotter pin, but after 100 or so rounds of mixed stuff (mostly 168 go stuff from Privi Partizan (sp?), same thing again.
Is there a replacement BCG for the SR762? I love the rifle (except for this issue), and would spend the $$ on something that would solve the problem.
Thanks,
Marc

MKIV: which cotter pin did you use to replace the one in your SR556?
Would automotive-grade stainless cotter pins work?

Does anyone know the exact dimensions of the cotter pin for the SR762?
