I would question the build also. If I had received a canted front sight block, it would go back. It is out of spec and will never shoot right.

Not to mention I believe Lancaster would be embarrassed and eager to quickly fix it.

Yes I contacted Atlantic before I bought it and they said it is contract built by lancaster. Its an egyptian parts kit that lancaster assembles for Atlantic on an NDS 3 receiver. So most likely they aren't even the ones that install the FSB, but I'm not sure about that part. It does have a lifetime warranty through Lancaster as well.

I did email lancaster about the cant but haven't heard back yet. I think I will give them a call tomorrow to see if they are willing to fix it. Its not majorly canted so its hard to get a good picture of it.

Other than that I love the rifle, good fit and finish and looks very nice

I bought this SAR-1 for 300 and dumped another 500 into it just to turn it back into a 150.00 rifle...

The things I do for love...

I paid 500 for my Yugo (M70) ( Bought Pre Obama). They were going up but the last couple times I have seen them in shops or shows they seem to be getting back to 525.00-625.00
