Small Quality Control Errors

#1
After a fun day of finding small quality control errors, I thought it might be nice to hear from other people about little unexpected issues in manufacturing or lack of attention to detail that gets delivered to the end user. Please post any you’ve had in this thread and what subsequently happened.

This isn’t meant to be a bash a company thread- errors occur in every business, its more just a way to laugh about some of the small things that get in the way of a smooth process.

I’ll start.

Ordered 3 Sig Virtus Upper kits from SWFA, in all three of them the AR15 buffer tube adapter was missing the set screw. SWFA is going to call Sig and see about getting the screws.

Ordered 2 Virtus barrel caliber change kits direct from Sig. Each included a bolt, one bolt has an out of spec cam pin hole, wont fit MCX or Virtus cam pins (they are different between generations); other one is perfect. Sig is sending a new bolt.

Odinworks 6.5 Grendel upper arrived, recommended by the forum here. They included a “test fired” cartridge with the patches, Allen wrenches, etc. -it’s a spent .223 Remington case. No follow up was needed except a good chuckle.

I got one. I wanted a 6.5 gasser and was looking at a GAP. Well the price was a bit much for me at the time so Instead I decided to grab a Seekins SP10 from Cabelas. Im a hugh Seekins fan and if ya dont know, GAP builds their big gass guns on Seekins uppers and lowers. Got the SP10 home and it would not even chamber a round. Emailed Glen and he had me send it back. So with not even one round through a brand new gun I sent it back to Glen. When the gun was returned, I put it in the safe and there it sat for a while. When I actually got to putting some rounds through it, I have not been inpressed. Trying LOTS of different ammo and some have been as bad as 2 MOA at 50yrds. I finally noticed on some loaded ejected rounds that had reamer marks on the bullet. I got a Hawkeye Bore Scope from a friend an had a look. It for sure has bad Reamer marks in the chamber and throat area. Not sure what Im gonna do. In the end Im not sure I want to send it back to Glen. I really want a Bartlin on it and thinking about calling up GAP and just have them spin up a Bartlin for me. BUT for a barrel and a gun that is Advertised as Match Grade, the Seekins Barrel should be better than it is. This experience is in no way gonna keep me from buying more Seekins stuff. I have a couple other built guns by me that are on Seekins Uppers and Lowers. Next to a old Billet MEGA, they are my Favorites.

Can he send you a new barrel? That would seem like the acceptable fix. You can inspect it yourself and make sure its satisfactory before putting it in, and send the crap barrel back. Or see if its possible to have the chamber smoothed out by a local smith?
