Numrich Gun Parts - Caution Advised
If you are going to buy gun parts from Numrich Gun parts, be particularly careful. It appears that they sell "knock-off" parts that aren't always up the the original spec's. I don't have a problem with having parts made when they are otherwise not available, but they should be made to the same standards as the original.
The LAST time I dealt with those people I had ordered a part that when it arrived, was defective, and failed on first use. I called them up, and sent it back, and they sent me another one. Also defective.
Since the failure of the part could lead to a slide coming back and hitting the shooter in the eye, I telephoned them so they could at least re-inspect all of the parts in that production lot, and take out any defective ones.
To my amazement, the person on the phone didn't care that there was a safety hazard. I asked to talk to her supervisor, but was told that the supervisor was too busy to talk to me. I asked to talk to one of their parts buyers or gunsmiths, and was told that they too were also way too busy to talk to me.
Not much else I could do. I DID keep one of the "New-Defective" parts, however, in case I ever need to verify my story.
Although you should inspect any new parts carefully before installing them, if you buy anything from Numrich's, inspect them VERY carefully. Sometime's they may be the only choice, so be careful.
I bought a good condition used part on e-Bay, and it's been working fine ever since.........
