Here's a brand new, out of the box, Springfield EMP .40sw I checked out at work today. This one will already be headed by to Springfield for some sort of repair work. Basically the firing pin was stuck full forward, and if the gun managed to feed properly it would have been a one shot mag dump gun needless to say. Because of that, of course the backplate was loose as well. For a $1200 F'in gun? This is BS. Even worse than that is we've received some POF AR's over the past few months, some with rusty screws on some of the picatinny sections on the forend. On top of that, one of them had a castle nut that wasn't even hand tight. Minor detail I know but, for a $2100 gun I would expect better than that. Oh, and there's also the S&W M&P15 VTAC, which used to be good about properly staked gas key bolts, and now it looks like they aren't even attempting to stake them or are barely even touching them. What the heck is going on? I know what's going on as far as trying to keep up with demand and quality slacking, though it's pretty annoying to see this on higher dollar guns.
