Wow, I've been away from Gunco for awhile. I don't know Stan personally, but he did build my RPD. He did an exceptional job on it. I did talk to him on the phone a couple times, and each time he was both friendly and courteous. I had some issues with my RPD at first, but found out later it was my own fault. It runs great now. Building these guns aren't like building an AK. They take time, and patience. Just saying.
