Well you saw things about this unit that concerned you early on.

Actually this isn't all bad. Time to see if BRO stands behind their product, which I expect they will. We'll eventually get a better idea of how this company operates.

You know I was thinking some of us who aren't participating might be able to help cover some of the cost. Maybe $20 or so to a Paypal account?

It is Christmas, ya know!

Same here, but that would explain how it slipped through QC.

Shipping, ammo, etc. for the guys doing the test. Y'know just something the rest of us can do to help out. A little bit from a bunch of us could even things out some.

Not that I'd turn down free $, but I volunteered to test it. I'm sure most of us were looking for a reason to go to the range and try out something that we normally wouldn't pay for.

And I think it's great you guys are doing it. I deferred myself because I'm almost sure I'd never buy a coated BCG. And really don't want to invest the time or ammo when I already have three ARs I like to test further instead!

But I am interested in what you guys think so thought maybe some of us could kick in a little to help... That's all I meant. I may find out I've been wrong about coatings. It's not that I'm against them (if they go on a true milspec BCG), it's just I think we're at the point of diminishing returns.

Mighty generous offer Q. But honestly, i dont think it should be all that expensve on our part. (Volunteers)

A little time record keeping and some thoughts and playing with the assembly before hand and after shooting is all it needed of it was up and running. Honestly i was expecting it to be boring reliable.

It should have invisible. Our shoot should have ben focused on my firends new optics, and zeroing it and breaking in the barrel. Hey thats what we were there to do in the first place. So we where planning on going through some ammo regardless. But it turned out we focused on that bcg and trying to getit to run properly. In the end we only lubed it and tried to forget about it before finally giving up on it. There's honestly not much we could've done . Lube, inspect the rings and extractor. Replace if necessary.

I was hoping we could have gone thrrough a couple hundred rounds with no incident and then see if that fancy coating held up. But meh, i guess we just werent that lucky.
