Ok guys so I swapped the DPMS out for a magpul, took it out for a workout, no problems. Went on a pig hunt, scored a hit, follow up shot, click! I got the kill but it was more work than necessary.
I tried your suggestion BM and it doesnt seem to bind. I called Remington today and this ***** is going back to NY to be tuned up by them, under warranty.
Here is a long overdue pic of this POS.
