Their customer service is often said to be outstanding.
They have a lifetime- no questions asked - guarantee regardless if you are the original purchaser or not.

Yeah, that's what I'm told. Though I've not shot any, I give a nod to Hi Points, especially when budgets are tight.

Re: How many hours of work to make a Mauser Receiver

I suspect its related to manufacturing capability. I would reason it is far more for production tooling costs & setup than capability ...

Re: Cheap ammo & value of rifle.

This is a question answerable by basic economics: price of related goods as a factor of demand. If related goods are expensive, it means demand for the product will be less. (and vice versa).

Re: Sporterized 1903 Found Locally. Help Me Decide...

Tagged at $699, I think they are tired of looking at it and I think I could get it for $400 if I tried.
I've seen similar ones a few years ago for as low as $300. $400 doesn't sound out of the question.

Re: 1909 Mauser Carbine in .30-06

As I understand, a lot of importers simply reamed the chamber exactly as you say, but a standard .308 bullet does not engage the rifling well due to a smaller diameter.

There is also the demise of the old Samco Global company of the mid 1980s.
I think they were badly managed, though, in the area of customer service. I saw a lot of bad comments from people who complained that they got a cold shoulder on the phone lines.

That is a neat show. Truth be told, I like all gunshows as it gets me around guns, but the MVC show is probably the best.
