    Got a question for all you EXPERTS.

    Looking at picking up a used Ed Brown. It does not apprear to have been
    messed with, it's a BROWN stammped barrel. Anyway, here's the deal.
    The barrel is "riding the link". The barrels lower legs do not contact the
    slide stop pin.

    Will Brown warrany repair this since I'm not the origional
    owner?
    Would it be better to have the legs built up, or have a new barrel
    installed/fitted?

    Call Ed Brown.

    If they can see it wasn't messed around with, I don't see why they wouldn't fix it.

    I have heard some negativity about Brown's service though. :dunno:
