I'm sorry to say that when I took my rifle out to test fire it, it malfunctioned even worse than it was sent to GG.
After about a year and a half, I still don't have a gun that even functions. I shipped it to GG three times, but he never was able to get it right.
Honestly, my post above that started this thread is just the tip of the iceberg. I am going to tell the entire story--in a factual and dispassionate manner--in a separate thread here that will be upcoming.
