^^ Heck of a question. Is there any way to get this info back to them? Thru Taylors, Cimmaron, etc?
It's not "quality" per-se, it's just one dimensioning decision that follows from model to model. It's not variable: It is obviously an engineering choice and not just an error, otherwise it would not hold true thru the entire product line.
Similarly, Pietta would increase their sales substantially if they lost the stupid markings on the barrel and put them under the loading lever like Uberti. I can fix an arbor, I cannot fix those damned markings. Can we get that word to them?
