Two shops in my area have Marlin 336's in 444 Marlin, I don't need another near obsolete cartridge to load for but I don't think I'll be able to hold out for long. Those triple fours are calling to me!
Bingo, yea, yea I know the old forged versus cast and I get it but for not much more than an SA you could get a forged receiver, thats the way I would go. Several years back JRA was making M14/M1a's with forged receivers, op-rods and such. I wish I would have grabbed one back then, I handled one...
There are other options for M1A's besides SA, Bula Defense comes to mind, LRB, Smith Enterprises, Fulton. If I was going to go back to the M1A family I probably would probably buck up the cash and go with one of those.
I bought the trigger group for mine, but that was last year. Last time I checked their website which was last week they had nothing for the PC Carbine. Brownells still had the trigger group listed on their site however but not sure about other PC carbine products from Volquartsen
Yup, I had another post in the "firearms" thread on it but yea 9mm/4.25", they had to re-cut the feed ramp and open up the chamber a tad and tune the extractor. It seems to be ok now but I gotta put more rounds thru it.
I was very disappointed with the Emissary I recently got however SA customer service was good and they got it back to me quickly and it seems to be ok now but I only put 150 rounds thru it since I got it back, and this was a $1200+ gun
Speaking for Myself, no other hand gun feels more natural and points better in my hand than a 1911, only other pistol that comes close is a Sig 220/226. I feel the same way about an AK, I'm not a fan but when I shoulder an AK it feels like it belongs there, length of pull is perfect and comes...
I have an RI 10mm, had a lot of trouble with it at first, sent it back to them and they just sent me another pistol that has been 100% so far with 500-1k rounds, their customer service is great.
Kimber target 2 10mm, not a lot of rounds down this one but the insert for the front site came out...
Took the Emissary out to the range for a quickie, fired a couple hundred rounds of different brands of FMJ and a few mags JHP's without a hiccup. I'm grateful that SA took care of this so quicky but maybe if the QC was a bit better it never would have had to gone back in the first place. But...
From SA today:
Our techs recut & polished the barrel ramp, reamed the chamber and tuned the extractor. The pistol was tested and is good to go. Processing and shipping Thursday or Friday.
