    New question here. Maverick Pivot Bolts UPGRADE??

    Hi fellow Maverick fans,

    I am looking to gauge interest on a possible new upgrade. A friend of mine( also a Maverick owner) has broken a few pivot bolts on his ML 7.5. He works in the tooling industry as is using some connections to make stronger bolts. Wondering how many other people are having/had problems with these breaking and might be interested in an affordable upgrade to a much stronger aerospace grade bolt that would have a much higher fatigue strength?

    I have only had 1 customer since 2002 have a broken pivot bolt, the "lighter" version that was spec'd on the ML7.5.
