    I've looked at some Aero lowers in person before, and decided that the differences in machining niceties and quality of anodizing were more than worth the additional $35 to get to a Mega forged...

    Yeah, I was finally going to get around to sending a 3953 off to Frank Smith and have him tune it up. Both bummed and saddened.

    Cool. I've never seen one like that either, but it looks like it should be pretty straightforward for a competent smith to do. Just time consuming.

    Yeah. One of the people profiled in connection with that in one of the other articles I read is an MD. A shrink, but still an MD.

    Meh. This is just the stuff that people with room temp IQs can find in SoCal. Not even close to the best, and there are hundreds/thousands of miles of road. It's why a lot of them put up with the...

    Yeah, I've seen a six-figure race program quietly disappear due to someone using the wrong-thread-pitch $1.87 fitting. (Pro tip: most Japanese manufacturers use BSP, not NPT. 27 vs 28 threads per...
