Angry BEWARE THE GOOD DEAL- firearms

A lot of do it your self'rs have taken to gun smiting here the past few years. IMO this has resulted in quite a few 1000$ junk guns.

Had a AR pistol come into the shop a few weeks back it would not shoot. The experts at another shop installed a rifle gas block with incorrect ports. As per the customer he watched them assemble it on a wooden stool.

Bores all fouled up and scared to the point of needing re-bored or a replacement barrel.

Trigger groups ruined by filing for that crisp let off. SMH

Magazines not feeding because the owner while playing super ranger thinks letting his mag drop to the ground is cool. There to stupid to notice the mag lips are all bent up.

I have watched many videos and read lots of comments and IMO if these guys were next to me on a range I'd move to the end bench!

With that being said there are a million deals out there from people who thought being a firearms parts dealer was in their blood. Reloading components look around and ask lots of questions on condition.

be careful the crooks are alive and well

Thanks for the heads-up, Bill. I would never purchase a firearm I was not completely familiar with...scary!
