Very Good point, if used gun, even PG becomes an FG minus 1 yr, in that regard.
Sold & bought a few over years and really enjoy the SAs. Would love any helpful info that I should be aware of in regards to normal use, have only made 1 bonehead mechanical mistake when alot younger but it wasn't critical on scoped rig, but avoidable. Try to avoid those too.
Noticed FA folks have always been good to deal with, they work like partners which is how I like to conduct too. But shipping is unreasonable these days due to nat. politics so avoid unfair practices & expense.
Still own a used FG non-Updated pin, that FA went over gun for me a long time ago where incurred some extra expense. Are there any known issues with those parts mentioned?
Does appear total dissasembly would be required to replace so see why drilling & threading performed, for updating. Then, especially if potential issue exsts tho doesnt seem like there should be one, but anything can happen of course.
Brings to mind I should at least become enuf of a smith to address any non-machining issues, now that have a wee bit more time.
