    if it was a 80% build then I would say do what TWA suggests, but if you paid for them and they went through the FFL send them back

    You can use USPS as well. The gun is supposed to be taken apart so it cannot fire, as well as unloaded!
    Unloaded, yes. Taken apart? Nope, that's not anywhere in the regs.

    Only a dealer may ship handguns via USPS.

    You are correct, I should have said that is what they told me but they were mistaken.
    And on another note. The UPS Stores wont ship a gun PERIOD. They aren't owned by UPS as far as I can tell and have their own rules.

    Back to the original subject, I hope it all works out for smartbomb, he once sent me a fairly expensive part completely free of charge. He should have some good karma left over.

    thanks guys. I am in a holding pattern waiting for Aero Precision to tell me what to do next. we shall see.

    in the meantime, I can work on my kids jeep. he got his license 3 months ago and this damn thing has been overheating for 2. I replaced the thermostat, hoses and radiator. ran fine for 6 weeks then started back. looks like the water pump is weeping around the gasket. I pulled it last night and found what looks like someone else replaced the pump or laid a bead of RTV. there are 3 spots in the water pump housing that look pitted. its cast aluminum and I cant figure out what would cause the pits. makes me wonder if these were defects in the casting.

    I had a bum lower from Olympic (Never guess) I shipped the stripped lower to them in a small Flat rate box. I received the new one back in a flat rate box. No change of ownership.

    Mtdew and sprat thanks for the kind words.

    I am fixed. Ended up taking my needle file and removing just enough from the rear lug on my upper. It amounted to barely going past the black finish. I left enough meat so that the pin requires a little bit of force to push thru. Over time it should wear in just right.
