I owned three on and off since they hit the market. First one I had, the feed ramps where not lined up right on the barrel and the gun wouldn't feed. Took it back to the dealer and got a second one that the mag well was out of spec (problem with the early release ones), returned it to the dealer and got my money back. Third one I got in trade and then traded it away again a month or two later. That one worked fairly well, but I decided with the ARs that I probably didn't need to add another logistics train to my cabinet. Was a nice shooter though.

Hope I got a good one.I am not worried as the guy's at J&G have always treated me right.I can't shoot it this weekend because I am working the gunshow.

I hope you did.

Quite a few (whole manufacturing lots) of these have not been heat treated properly and the headspace has been reported to open up with use.

There is no way to fix this.

A few "decent builders" won't build them.

The manufacturer of the receiver has made a big mistake, and won't stand up and take care of the customer.

Find a nice used IMI Galil, instead.

Thanks,

So, I'm guessing these are pre-ban?
