I told him he should of used his glove money and bought a better hand gun. It was pretty awkward after that.
I like ARs because I shoot M-16s and M-4s. If I had armorers tools, I could take one completely apart and put it back together. Marns AR likely has misaligned extended (M-4) feed ramps. Unfortunately, the feed ramps are milled in and can't be readily fixed easily.

I agree 100% and am an AR hater. I finally got talked into it (mostly by a prepped buddy....share ammo and parts) and regret it.

Ill stick with my.old technology.

They aren't miss matched or misaligned. :-/

I think that that is what im gonna do is get the MTR's as ive always heard good things about them. I know onlinetires.com has them for 209$ a tire which is pretty good I think. But I dont know what shipping is gonna cost so I'm hoping that discount, tireworks or whomever can beat their price.

Which BFG tires did you get?

Is that what Spikes told you? I would like to know what the final verdict is then. I can think of a couple of other things but none of them seem as likely as the feed ramps.

No. That's what I told myself.

I'm waiting to see what they say. They told the other guy they replaced his BCG and it was shooting fine.

Funny thing is....this is the 3rd upper he has had from them

The CEO basically told him the problem is on his end because 'we test everything before we send it back' the owner has tried 3 lowers 2 BCG's and a ton of mags.

BCG might could cause it but I really doubt it. Have you tried with a partially loaded mag? My issue M-4 on my last deployment had a problem with stripping the first round out of brand new mags unless I only loaded them with 29 instead of 30 but never marred the brass. Marred brass is almost always feed ramps. Sounds like Sparks has an issue that they either don't know about or don't care about.
