Oh, don't we all. Hell, I think they got all the way down to $720.
I’ve seen bad parts/rifles come from nearly every manufacturer.
Your experience is so unusual, it almost sounds if one person was to blame.
I’ve assembled dozens of guns from PSA parts, I’ve yet to have to send anything back.
It's not a problem, the torque range is quite wide.
Sometimes, a 24" pipe wrench with a 2" pipe cheater 3' long is your friend. There was no need to damage your weapon.
it often seems as if the only issue PSA rifles have is due to poor assembly. The canted front sight bases are a good example. And this issue arises every year or so. They put out a bad batch then correct the issues......then a year or two later,.....
crappy sigs and kimbers? no sir i wouldn't be surprised at all.
it was $789. i've been kicking myself for years now over it.
I'm not arguing that any company can have a lemon
When that happens I do demand that subsequent actions / replacements NOT continue to have issues
Re read the OP's original post
It would have taken PSA moments to not send sub par follow up replacements
it would have taken moments to use a proper jig to make sure the fsb was straight and it would have taken moments to make sure an uppers pin holes were drilled correctly. when you're paying less than $400 for a kit, some corner has to be cut, i found out which ones it is.
I don't care if you paid $99.
Yes, QA costs time which equals money. When you run fast / lower QA a reputable company / employee that cares will work to correct a bad transaction
Not just shrug shoulders and perpetuate the mistake
I've had problem child guns but from the big names but the follow-up fix kept me a customer for life
Others may say "oh well, bad roll of the dice" but not me
I went back and looked and one without furniture was $605. For $30 + an optic you could complete that thing.
Then there was a 6920 Mexico roll mark for $665
Last, this one with Magpul furniture for $752
Yowser, that is not good. And kudos for posting. I will pray that your Optics Planet order works out okay. I have never ordered anything from PSA, probably never will as I generally lump them in with Optics Planet and Cheaper Than Dirt as volume sellers whose primary concern is the $.
Maybe they hired grinder monkey's from Century.....
Pretty much exactly what I was thinking.
My biggest complaint with PSA is they're always out of whatever I want to order. The few things I've ordered from them have been fine. The PSA 10.5" AR pistol has been a blast. It's become my favorite AR.
i've ordered a couple of other times from optics planet without issue. they still havem't shipped my latest order, but they did state 1-4 business days on getting it out due to demand.
i did screw the windam barrel onto the psa upper and indexed the nut with out issue so all i'm waiting for is the delta ring and handguards. i got tomorrow off i think i'm gonna hit a few gun shops in town and see what turns up.
i have a love hate relationship with mine. i love the short OAl and the handling, i hate the canted fsb and its stupidly over gassed (1:30-2:00 ejection) putting in an h2 buffer didn't help.
i have a new lower coming for it, will be here friday. i'll post pics of both guns next week. i think ya'll will like the pistol...its...unique.
I found my PSA ARs even ones with FN barrels were not very accurate. Using xm193 ammo maybe 5 minutes of angle. Same ammo in my Colt ARs 2 moa.
So at this point thinking PSA ok for cheap iron sight plinkers with whatever ammo available or for home defense as they always seem to feed fine.
My Ruger AR while not as good as Colts accuracy wise seems to hold about 3moa with xm193.
