If your right, your right. If I have to wait, I will wait... patience is not a flaw for me personally... but once again thanks for the info.
Patience I must admit is not one of my virtues
I just know that were I to have waited the 6 months for the tax stamp, finally getting the much anticipated call that it was here and I could pick it up... only to find my brand new toy was useless until they could receive the much needed part I would have been bent.
Thanks JonM for the idea.. my gun shop took several weeks to get the psiton in, yours is a signifantly faster method.
Time for me from when I ordered the Osprey due to the rush as MI had just given the go for suppressors, it took over 5 months just for them to get it in... It took so long I decided (glad I did) filed and did an NFA so next time things will hopefully go faster
Once the Osprey arrived and could get the serial numbers to file with the ATF, I spent some time on multiple silencer forums. Where I was dismayed to find out from the BTDT groups I still needed a piston for the Osprey. Which I confirmed with the gun shop (I wonder when they planed on telling me this), ordered one, two weeks and $80 later I had one.
Add all that together and you hit real close to a year from the time I stepped in the gun shop to me bringing it home, and like I said had I been made to wait two more weeks I would not have been a happy camper....
One final thought on your resident expert... If he still insists it will work with out the pistion.... Make him show you how it will fit a store gun with one from the show case....
Either way you will love it once your tax stamp arrives and you get to play.
As to your "needful self image" comment... Spent over 30 years as a Fire Marshall, it was an continuous learning experience but early on one thing I learned in the game was you cannot possibly know everything. So when in doubt find the BTDT group and go for a chat, pay attention, as they may just save me some time and I can profit by their mistakes and make my own instead....
Be safe and be sure and give us a report when yours arrives.
