    To all:

    There seems to be some misunderstanding of some issues involved here, so I'll try to set the story straight. As some of you have noted, I can come off a bit arrogant and/or condescending....

    Care to elaborate?

    I'm not sure how a flat bottom firing pin stop, Tripp mags, or a new RS assembly from WC is exactly controversial. Though I did forget the HD ETMs.

    In what respect? Is 0.025" going to make or break something in terms of reliability?

    I'd likely go measure breech face dimensions before shouting odds.

    Nope. Which is why only partial solutions were mentioned. The remedy is fairly easy, though.
