So I recently bought an older Halo 2 that was missing a screw. I wasn't too worried about it but the seller said they had a case open for a replacement and wouldn't you know Microtech actually came through with a new matching screw. I went to replace it and found it appeared the old screw had broken in half. Took most of the threading with it. I proceeded to take it apart in an attempt to at least remove the bottom half with my left threaded drill bit set. Of course, the set didn't have the smallest size possible so going to have to wait on amazon for that bit.
My main issue is during disassembly I found three other screws similarly afflicted with the same issue. Now as this will have a place of honor among my display I am fine putting things back as they were (not my first choice of course). But it makes me ask, is there an issue past or present with screw metallurgy used in the Microtechs. I will say I've also found issues with a recently manufactured Ultratech's screws as well.
Anyone else have these troubles pop up?
