    Thank ya, Al !   I'm hanging on to mine for all I'm worth.  When I came into this world, she had to wipe my ass.  I'm sure that one day, it'll be my time to take over that duty for her.   :bitchslap:

    I already told her that she's getting the garden hose...   :laffs:

    @DNP has met her - she made him promise something - if she calls, he needs to bring a sharpened shovel...   :lmao:

    Hell, @Matt.Cross has met her, too - and he was "Yes, Ma'am" all the time, in his best MealDot Accent...   :banana:

    She loves them both...   :thumbup:

    She's a great lady your mom, worthy of sainthood in my opinion!

    I agree with you that they are a good barrel company but my issue is that in the firearms industry they need to stop, slow down and get the job done correctly.

    I understand that things happen and lemons get passed. 

    Stop and/or slow down, on whose dime? Yours, mine? Certainly not on theirs, not when demand is at historic highs....

    It's a demand-driven supply chain. Of course they're adding some liquor to their diesel (movie reference), but they gotta strike while the iron is hot. 

    The reason they're reputable for being a great barrel company is that the overwhelming majority of their customers got a great product immediately. That you didn't is unfortunate but I'm pretty confident they will correct the issue at little if any cost.

    This supposed to be a good barrel company. 

    It's a great barrel company! Yours is the first and only barrel with their name on it that I've heard of or seen issues with...

    Granted, you didn't get a good barrel. Noted.

    It's their response that should determine your judgement, not one statistically insignificant anomaly.

    I see what you did there...   :banana::lmao:

    Now that it's got a proper Cerakote base to it, I can use the ex-wife's lacy underwear to add a decent Krylon pattern to it...   :thumbup:

    Victoria's Secret stencil method?

  5. I'd start with the fact that its dry as a bone at the outset. It's well documented that this platform needs to be broken in with copious quantities of heavy lube at the outset. Get that sucker soaking wet to begin with, after that cease & decist from riding that charging handle. Yank that sucker to the rear until it slips your grasp and slams home.

  6. This might be the first time in the history of the forum that I had to close an introduction thread because it went too far off the rails. @DustBuster your last two posts were better suited to a separate thread than they are to this one. It's fantastic that you're pursuing a friendly dialogue with @98Z5V and I'm 100% sure he's quite flattered, but you didn't get his hint so I'm going to be quite blunt about this: QUIT GOING OFF TOPIC IN THE NEW GUY'S INTRO THREAD. Thank you.


    @Tack14 I know you're still getting adjusted and reading around, welcome to the forums and stick around a while. It's only like this when we've got a wave of newcomers with no feel for the established community. I apologize for the mess.
