Some have been for years. I have quite a bit of experience in the subject.

Great PSA...thanks for the heads up!

I've been spreading out my purchases over the past 2 years so I won't be able to blame this surge if I have any turd parts or ammo.

Edited...similar questions asked and answered.

Coming from Chad,,,, advise to take note of.

The only "new" stuff I have bought is ammo from AJ, a couple weeks ago,, not worried!

Stay healthy everyone.

I have personally seen some of the shitshows SIG had been putting out, and I feel for the Sky Marshals who got stuck having to carry them.

On a positive note, business should be booming for you Chad, and since you raised the alarm first, no one here should have any issues if they buy crap that they have to pay you to rebuild/refurbish/throw in the dumpster and burn.

Thanks for the sage advice.

Itís really much worse than the Obama scare. Higher demand combined with lower factory capacity as some locales will have restrictions on the number of workers who are allowed on the floor at one time or plants which are closed entirely due to shelter orders, and the threat of an upcoming election, really creates the perfect storm.

This makes total sense.
Makes me think twice about anything I'd be buying. But anything I"m actually interested in buying was likely made 60 years ago or more.

So glad/fortunate that I addressed my AR needs before this chaos, both through SOTAR classes and doing the SOTAR upper inspection/repair service. I've been stockpiling parts as well, in part because I wondered about future restrictions and still have pre-FSA2013 lowers.

Will SOTAR be expanding its certification of AR components available through a 3rd party and/or selling them in house?
