    Remington 870 Tac 14. Would have never thought about buying one of these, but am loving it so far. It is a fun little firearm, and most importantly not a shotgun.

    First prize was a Sig p365. I'm glad I got this.

    I got black out drunk on cheap tequila at a swap meet with my buddies about a year and a half ago and aparently I bought a ticket for a nra raffle, because they called me a few months later to come pick up my new mossberg 500. It was my first gun and set me down a path to my new favorite hobby. God bless America.

    People say that Remington's quality control hasn't been good recently. So would the 590 shockwave really be significantly different from this Remington T14 thing? They look exactly the same to me.

    Here is my Ruger GP100 6" .357 Magnum. It was collecting dust in my father's safe and I offered to buy it from him. Now here we are. He got it originally as a backup for bear hunting and it sat in the safe for close to 8 years. Now it joins me in just about every range trip.

    My 500 and my buddies Benilli M4. I find a pistol grip shotgun feels a little weird. The 500 kicks hard as hell compared to the M4, but they're both fun to shoot. I still prefer pumps over semi though

    If you think you're broke now, just wait til you start putting optics on these puppies. You'll go from running on empty to sputtering on fumes REAL quick. Which reminds me I probably should check, I mean cringe, at my credit score.

    Ruger GP100 and Kimber K6s. Both are a hoot to shoot, especially the Ruger. With 38 specials the Gp100 recoils like a 22. The K6s is my EDC and carries very comfortably. Though it's chambered for 357, I keep it loaded with Hornady FTX 38 + P to aid in my accuracy. Have a good hump day everyone.

"Mandatory" Recall Monday

    After many months I finally sent back my M249S to FN for the mandatory safety recall. FN claimed that the recall was due to “ an identified design issue within the hammer group of the rifle may adversely affect the rifle’s reliability. Under certain circumstances, a reset failure within the hammer group may cause the M249S to cease to function, causing an unsafe firing event. To correct this condition and restore consistent, proper and safe operation of the firearm, it is necessary to replace the hammer group.

    In reality, the recall was due to the following from my experience: 1. the rifle literally bent cartridges 45 degrees if you didn’t drop the charging handle from the rear, 2. light primer strikes were VERY common, up to 20% of a belt, and 3. There was a deadzone on the trigger around 2mm long which would allow the user to run the rifle in full auto closed bolt configuration. This doesn’t include “issues” that could be intentionally induced by using steel case ammo from the mag well.

    I first heard about the recall about a day or so after it was announced in 2017 thanks to this sub doing the right thing and shitting on FN for building a $7-10,000 rifle that didn’t function properly. Were they right? Absolutely. The gun was a clusterfuck from the start, but you know what? It was in Counter-Strike and a ton of other video games and movies over the last 2 decades.

    For me the recall was initially a nightmare. I checked my serial to see if my rifle was in the affected serial range. Of course it was, that’s how these things roll, but unlike the Remington 700 Police I had years ago when the trigger recall was announced, I didn’t just trade it to some dude on armslist to get it out of my hair (literally the worst gun I have ever used, and I’ve fired an early batch wasr ), mostly because everyone on armslist offered me a “KUSTUM” PSA AR15 or a piece of shit pick up with more miles on it than OP’s mom (with even less tread on the tires).

    I signed up and registered the rifle on FN’s recall page. They were then supposed to send me a box to ship the rifle back in (prepaid of course). Well, this is where it gets interesting. FN decides to send the box to a bunch of stoners down the street. Our address only share the same street name and nothing more. I picked up the box from the stoners, but there wasn’t a chance in hell I’d send my rifle back in a box that went to the wrong person. I contacted FN again and they shipped another box out to me. I actually received it this time, over a month later of course.

    Fast forward literally 10 months later. I take it to my fudd sprortsman’s club range to make sure my zero is solid before another scheduled range day with /u/iggins01 and some other regulars. I decide that I’m going to be good and only bring a single box to zero with, by box I mean black saw box of 200. Zero seems acceptable after a few rounds in, 3-4” group at 100yards with M855. I continue to plink some more and THERE SHE GOES. The gun is slam firing and running the entire belt. The trigger is mush and does nothing. I realized there are 2 things to do at that point, break the belt or just keep it on target and let it go. By the time I finished my thought the gun was done and CLP smoke was everywhere as the only way to get it run “reliably" was to literally bathe it in CLP between belts.

    I got home and decided that it was time to take that recall box out of storage and send it back to FN. I didn’t care what the recall did, I just couldn’t have a gun that I can’t trust around. I emailed state farm to make sure that it was still insured if Fedex lost the gun. They confirmed and after a thorough cleaning I was at the fedex hub praying that the rifle will be lost on the way to FN or back. To my surprise the shipping label provided by FN from December 2017 was still good in September 2018. I provided FN with a detailed list of issues that I encountered over the 6,000+ rounds that had been through the gun over the nearly two years that I owned it. Many issues persisted from day one and it seemed to only get worse over time, just like the RPD I sold to fund the M249S.

    Fast forward a month and I have my rifle back. After inspection I have noticed the handful of changes made by FN during the recall. 1. The trigger groups is quite a bit different. The trigger is heavier, but can now almost be “staged” to where it will break. There is also no “dead zone” on the trigger that would allow for closed bolt full auto. Sad day. 2. The hammer underside has been modified greatly. It is no longer smooth with a small notch for the sear, but now has a VERY large cut out for the sear to catch on.

    When sending the rifle in for repairs the gun was clean. I didn’t not receive it back clean in the slightest. FN either ran 400+ rounds through it or they were using some of the dirtiest ammo I have ever encountered in my life. I am very happy about this. It seems to lean toward that they actually read about the extensive issues I was having with the rifle and spent the time to remedy them completely

    Another thing I was pleasantly surprised with through the process was just how polite the service techs were. It was a pretty good experience. LMT still takes the cake though on helpfulness and politeness of tech support.

    TL;DR - Customer service rating: 8/10 if you’re ok with waiting on your free shipping box to actually reach your house.
