Actually, I do sometimes buy things from people (that haven’t all ready been tampered with) when they decide a project is beyond their desire to complete. But you would most likely want to sell it for more than I paid for mine brand new.
Of course I was just being facetious in response to your inane comment.

Quote:
You appear to be quite new to gunsmithing
Perhaps; although not nearly as new and generally uninformed as you seem to be.

Quote:
...and failed to wait until you knew more about the new product offering before you committed to letting go of your cash and that's regrettable.
Unfortunately however I'm not a clairvoyant, so the only way I can learn about the flaws of a particular product is if someone who already has one (and recognizes the issues himself) somehow communicates it to me. Otherwise I have to buy it and depend on the manufacturer's good faith to remediate any latent problems inherent to the product.

But while we're on the subject, what's your excuse? I started this thread on the locking block issue 60+ days ago. Yet despite having the information readily available to you (something I didn't have), you nevertheless went out and bought a PF940V2 without any idea how to handle the problem yourself? And then you criticize me?

Quote:
If you think that 80% projects and gun parts in general are always going to be a drop-in fit, then I have some really bad news for you. Perhaps you should take up another hobby?
LOL! Well look who's talkin! My frame and locking block were in the same condition as yours. From past dealings with Polymer 80, I knew I'd most likely have to fix it myself, so I simply milled the locking block width down to what it should've been in the first place and then installed it. I was able to do this because I have machine tools and experience that you apparently don't have.

Quote:
OR better yet – put out a superior product of your own design and capitalize on everyone else’ inability to match it.
After having this discussion with you, I'd probably be tempted to produce junk, sell it at the highest possible price, hide behind an irrelevant legal technicality, and have people like you make excuses for me.

Quote:
Apparently you had good results with another configuration of a similar product and relied on that knowledge to make a hasty decision in dropping your cash.
Well of course; why wouldn't I?

Quote:
Now that you know the issues with the new product offering you want your money back.
Well of course; why wouldn't I?

Quote:
But what’s going on here is that you want to attack ME because I am thoroughly satisfied with the support I’m receiving from Polymer80.
No, I don't "want to attack [you]"; rather, I vehemently disagree with your unjustifiably generous characterization of Polymer 80 and I challenged it; that's all.

Quote:
Make no mistake, I fully support your right to voice your problems and displeasure with Polymer80 and the V2 product, and you have done that thoroughly and repeatedly. What I don’t appreciate is having someone stalk each of my posts repeatedly voicing redundant complaints.
My statements on the subject are in reply to yours and are therefore no more "redundant" than yours. I'm sorry if I've offended your gentle sensibilities, but you keep repeating yourself and praising them up to high heaven; even after they sent you defective parts for a second time (which should be a clue to you).

Quote:
All you really accomplish by being so redundant with your constant whining is to make yourself look like a vindictive crybaby that should be put on “ignore”.
So now you're going to start calling me names? LOL! Please do; coming from the likes of you, I'll take it as a compliment. And please feel free to ignore me.

Quote:
You have reached the point where your complaints are less credible and make it appear that you simply have some vendetta against Polymer80.
Well based on everything you've said so far, it seems you're not the best judge of "credibility".

Once again btw, I have far more experience with Polymer 80 and their products than you do (and I also have far more gunsmithing experience than you do), so I'm here doing my civic duty in challenging your statements which are completely misrepresentative of the situation.

Quote:
In the future, I’d advise you to conduct more thorough research prior to committing your financial investment in any new products.
Well thanks for the thought, but I don't generally take advise from credulous fools such as yourself.

Quote:
Had you done so in this instance, you wouldn’t be feeling all butt-hurt over your perceived loss.
You're the one getting something shoved up your ample @ss, junior; you're just too stupid and generally mechanically incompetent to even realize it.
And unlike you, I have the ability to modify the locking block I have, or I can build up and machine down the underlug on the barrel. If it comes down to it, I can probably even make my own locking block from scratch.

The problem I have with Polymer 80 is mainly a matter of principle; they need to be called out on their lousy business ethics. But that's way over your head, chump.

Yes! I am now seeing the problem!

When you got on the phone with tech support, you acted like a whiny little b*tch - just like you're doing in this thread.

As soon as you get triggered, you start getting abusive with people. And yet you wonder why they told you to "go pound sand".

Sorry, but I just can't help liking Polymer80's tech support even more now!!

Damn good advice, especially since not following it may well lead to getting banned.

Apparently I'm not bright enough to heed the warning posted above.

My locking block issue is different. I had no problem installing it, I cut a slight bevel in the frame and it fit snugly. The problem I have is the dimensions of the rails, they are .011" thicker than the old style PF940V1 and wider. I contacted polymer80 and they are sending me another.
good and prompt customer service, just what I like
