Iv had 3 of em and worked on a bunch more. The reciever metal is crap. The springs and buffer rails are a b*&ch to get back in wo damaging the springs. The triggers really suck bc they are so stiff. You cant do ANYTHING to fix them short of buyin a timney trigger group for it. Even that doesnt do much good. The riflings tend to break off after or around 2500 rounds. The charging handle pins and tabs break off fairly often.

Sounds Almost as bad as a Remmy Viper 522

Sorry it worked out that way for you, Tackleberry, but you know his heart was in the right place, and he sounds like a great boss for rewarding you for a job well done in such a way.

Those Nylons are awesome. I have one and it shoots great. The only problem is me....it's so light that it's hard to hold it steady shooting offhand! But that's me, not the rifle.

But why would anyone put a Krieger barrel in one when you can buy a Nylon all day long on Gunbroker for about $300?

I've got over 10-15K rounds through it and it is still shooting well. Maybe even more. Just won't die; but I haven't leant it to teenagers ???

Just kidding...

Thank God those barrels are available from Numrich & Bob's Gun Parts for cheap!
Big Shrek

Thanks for the lead. Numrich is out of stock but it's the first place I've found that even lists them. I'll call them Monday and SE if I can put a hold on the next blued barrel they get in.

Yeah he's a good man, looks like Numerich stocks thes barrels for $62 so I'll grab one as soon as there back in stock. Now I'm currious how many more contracts I'll need to sign up for his Auto 5 to slide my way.
