    I'm happy you got it runnin' right. :thumb:

    ANY brand can have an occasional booboo. Yours may have had a new guy/gal on the assembly line that didn't recognize a wonky part, or possibly even wonkerized it themselves.

    This is why I encourage disassembly and inspection of newly obtained firearms, whether new or used.

    Heck, at least you figured it out and saved a bunch of money.

    Browning usually does good but every company puts a lemon out every now and then.

    Yeah....I'm not even all that mad that it needed work, but I am very mad about their handling of it. For example:
    1. Tell me to send it in with no mention of possible charges.
    2. Related to above, they had to run the serial over the phone --- that should have told them out of warranty. Why then, not tell me about charges before sending it?
    3. Searching online, this model had apparently had a few fair share of lemons --- so shouldn't they have some kind of document internally where they might be able to say "hey, we show you're out of warranty, but maybe check X, Y and Z".
    4. Why don't they have a dang published warranty somewhere?

    I've only had one other "send a firearm" in experience and it was a Phoenix Arms one. Worst gun I've ever owned, but best service experience. (On the gun side, it was a $75 pawn shop special, so I didn't expect much going in to be honest). Even on optics and accessories, I've always had really good service experience generally. I just really feel that they missed the mark big on a few levels here.
