25 days and counting. What's the hold-up?
Thank you everyone for your patience! We are not holding anything back! All of the tests were performed to show the TRUE durability of our rifles! We have a lot of footage we are trying to cram into a few minutes and are working on bringing you the highest quality video we hope you have come to expect from us! Final video should be finished next week. There may be an extended version, along with other specific segments due to the amount of footage and tests we performed...

If they were serious about testing their gun they would send me 10000 rounds and a rifle. If its gonna get broke ill break it....

Lol. If only it was that easy. But I'd ask for 50,000. Especially if they send one of there excellent FN CHF barreled rifles. 10,000 might not cut it. Hehe

PSA has said the rifles they tortured had the FN non-CHF barrel!

Naw a true test would be at least 100, with 30k rounds each. A better test would be 1k just to get a viable sample size.

That's probably better seeing as they sell more uppers/rifles without CHF barrels.

If your going psa or bcm splurge a little on the chf.

Well crap. And I thought I was done buying for a while.


BTW- the BCM (gen2) ambi gunfighter charging handle is outstanding and worth the extra $25 or so.

My Daniel Defense has their CHF barrel that DD makes in house. My BCM and PSA have the FN non-CHF. All are 16" midlength. The DD and BCM are pencil barrels and the PSA is their slightly heavier "lighter profile". I really can't see much difference in accuracy since I use irons/RDS and 2 MOA is fine by me. Haven't tried a scope though that would be interesting to check groups fired from a rest.

I will say the DD CHF is slightly nicer (fit/finish) and is 2 ounces lighter than the BCM/FN non-CHF. So CHF isn't a bad idea at all.
