I post here more because I'm privileged to be in the company of some really talented individuals in regards to the "how" of building a firearm, and the AK Forum because I'm privileged to be in the company of some who are dedicated to researching the configuration(s) of the AK.
As far as personal conflicts go, I've seen them on both sites. Moderation styles and what constitutes "proper" member behavior are different, but both sites are what I consider a comfortable place to "be."
I have a daughter. I tell her, "911 is what you dial after you're raped. 1911 is what you should have before they try."
Thanks for your info on Cody Baker. I currently have him working on a VZ-58 for me and am encouraged by your praise.
I will be receiving the build sometime in the week or so according to Cody and will report back on the workmanship.
It was a "work in progress", but I think you will be very pleased with the rifle.
Oh, and the workmanship on my Tantal? Fit and finish, excellent. Everything was there, everything works fine, and I even got to test fire the rifle myself....
Works flawlessly, just like all my other Elk River / Cody Baker builds.
I didn't ridicule, I reported exactly what took place.
I was sold the Tapco handguard at your facility. If it was crap as you say why was it sold to me?
Now that it is installed on the weapon properly it is fine. Poor workman ship.
There is nothing the matter with NDS-3 receivers either. It was more more of your poor workmanship.
You know if you hung around your business a liitle more you might know what is going on.
You certainly won't do anymore of my builds. And I will pass on the handjob you are offering me as referenced in your cute little cartoon character. I'm not into homosexual acts thank you.
Posting something like that in a reply to a customer just shows what your metal is made of.
Don't worry I'll tell all my friends and associates about you.
You know, quite often you GET what you GIVE. I have never been treated with anything but respect and courtesy by Hector or anyone else at Elk River.
As 'ol Bugs Bunny used to say, (before he became politically incorrect) "What a marroon..."
PS - Hector, just got back from the range. Cody's Tantal build performed flawlessly! I know I'LL be using you again...

Gunco Member if you research your emoticons you will see that is a thumbs up not a hand job in confederates post. that chip must get heavy after a while. if you read this thread from the very begining. you can see hector seems like a reasonable guy. but when you emit hostility you will receive it also, its human nature .just lighten up and converse and learn from the members here. it is an imperfect world and everyone deserves a second chance
WOW, not even a mention of the rifles funtion!
Sir, I will be very happy that you don't return.
Again you ridicule without obviously knowing anything about business or the NDS3 "economy receiver".
Oh yeah, if your life depends on it why a NDS3 "economy receiver"?
What does it matter if you see me.....well you may have wanted a picture and an autograph so I do understand your disappointment.
Enjoy your rifle!
I was mislead by people in your office. I was given different answers from everyone I talked with, I had no problem until I felt I was being played.
Anyone with a back bone would have contacted their customer to inquire about the problem. You sir did not do that. Again it shows what your metal is made of.
I stand by all my statements they are all true and if I thought it do any good I would report the entire story but since there seem to be a lot of your associates and employees that are posting here to defend you and your company's incompetence it would be a waste of my time.
My time would be better spent making my report and posting it on all the other gun related sites on the web. Maybe a sign for when I go to the range or gun shows "ASK ME ABOUT MY ELK RIVER EXPERIENCE"
Chip on my shoulder, yep, thanks to you I have one now.
And by the way I do sign the checks at Elk River I just signed one for over four hundred dollars. Your customers sign your checks but I guess you just don't realize that.
Thanks TR for the sit-rep.
