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.
Freedom is not free. The best of us always leave too soon.

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...

Are you sure it isn't time for a "colourful metaphor"?

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
