In the sense that I want to grab as many guns for myself as possible, absolutely. I almost bought a Q Fix once upon a time, but got scared off by the bolt lift issues.

Last time AA got in refurb Razors, they were like $800 for non-E and $900 for the E model. Those are pretty smoking hot prices.

That post went all over the place, so I am a little confused.

PM me. Worst I say is no. I will say I don't need the ammo, I've got reloading components out the wazoo for 45, so price is definitely more my concern.

The Hornady tool is great, but realize that it's not going to tell you what feeds reliably out of your magazine, which is a substantial issue with those big blunt 300AAC subs.

I had an RIA 1911A2 that I really liked a bit, but I sold it because I honestly had no need for a 9mm double stack 1911 at the time. I suppose I'll just troll the usual spots and see what pops up.

I have one, and it's rad. Trying to stay away from the Chinese optics for future purchases, but I personally think this optic better in most ways than an Eotech or Vortex UH1.

You didn't fix it being overgassed, you mitigated it. It's still overgassed. Thank you for confirming my point that an FN barrel can be made to different specs and tolerances.

Just because it's from DC Machine or FN doesn't mean they built it to the same tolerances as all their other barrels. In fact, P&S had the guy from FN on their podcast and he confirmed just that.
