I tend to agree with you, but there traveling salesmen ( experts ) are a big disappointment when I wanted to get another firing pin for my S/S factory folder I brought it in for them to look at. The first thing the guy did was take down the Serial Number, made a phone call and then said I'de have to send it to the factory, pay S/H both ways and a service fee. You would think a factory rep would have plenty of parts to hit the road with. My mini is now computerized (Serial numbed) in Mass. as being the new owner, much to my chagrin.
