  1. Holy smokes.... I smell a new Chuck Norris!
  2. Rifle length buffer tube needs a rifle length buffer and buffer spring and carbine tubes use a carbine spring and buffer. Gas tube length doesn't affect anything but i would use an adjustable gas block to make sure you don't end up over gassed.
  3. Yup. Things ain't right with that extension. Your method is going to give you a much more accurate look at things than rolling it on a glass table top.
  4. Take the barrel off, roll it on a flat surface. If there is wobble in the middle. The barrel is bent. If there is no wobble roll it with the extension hanging off the edge of your flat surface while looking up the chamber. If the chamber appears to wobble your extension is not on right. If this doesn't show any wobble...its an installation issue and not the barrel. In My experience its always been something with the installation and not the barrel. I've used your straight edge method before but its not conclusive because the extension nub is covered by the barrel nut and you have to see that the nub and the gas hole don't line up on the square to see that the barrel is bent. Just my opinion and methods...hope it helps if not I'm sure faxon will help you.
  5. I've had to do it 5 or 6 times. It may not fix your problem but its worth a try. I've never monkied with faxon barrels so I don't know the suggested torque specs. Maybe its over torqued. All I can say is I've had the same issue on several occasions and it's a trulley frustrating experience but I've always been able to fix it that way. I would think its pretty hard for a barrel that's not straight to make it past even the most elementary q.c. checks.
  6. That has happened to me on a couple of barrels. I had to loosen and re torque the barrel nut a few times to get them to sit right. Maybe that will help straighten it up.
  7. I asume employees like that are part of the reason they are closing. If it were my store I'da fired em long before they could fugg up like that.
  8. 8.25 oz.....new helium composite?
  9. Craddock and Rainier make barrels for the g2. A company called hammer arms makes barrel extensions for the g2 so you can put other brands on it as well if you want to go to the trouble of having a barrel made with a hammer arms extension.
  10. Sorry man...logged into this forum right after I got of a midget porn site.
  11. I think we need some clarification. Just how hard do you have to pound before we consider it pounding the shiit out of it?
  12. Now that there's a good gun to be cleaning when your daughter's first date comes to pick her up. Welcome aboard.
  13. Hornady factory ammo.....NO DUDE I wasn't putting creedmoor in my grendel mag
  14. Nope...I think you're right. It seems too shallow. Maybe they just had a depth issue in general. Too bad...I wanted to see how these barrels shoot and now I have to wait.
  15. I'm sure they didn't check the headspace. These guys were having an issue with the chambers being too deep on the grendel barrels and had a recall but I never heard about them being too shallow. I'll give them a ring on Monday. Think they offer a lifetime guarantee. Thought I was going to have a range review today BUT...sh!t happens.
