Problem with a detail of an McCollum G3 receiver explanation   Small Arms <20mm

in 9:02, McCollum says that German claw mounting is attached too tightly actually can dimple the receiver.

I have asked about the subject to veterans who used CETME C extensivelly (paratroopers who has watched a lot of harsh treatment of CETMEs), and they explain to me that what McCollum says is nonsense

I tend to agree with my paratrooper friend, but otoh McCollum tends to be quite precise in all his assessments

What do you people think?

Your paratrooper friend is right, it is indeed nonsense. 

If the video showed the removing/attaching of the scope -instead of a blurred still photo-  it would also show the smooth ground surfaces on the receiver which ensure the mount position is the same each time.

McCollum really knows a lot and explains usually very well. But sometimes even he misses key points. For example, when showing the Hungarian pistol widely known as Walam, he totally overlooked its automatic firing pin safety.
