At the gun show I went to today, I was able to meet up with the guy I bought my STG-58 from (that doesn't cycle proplerly). He said he would send it in to get it fixed, and then shipped to my house. That was a lot better results than what I expected to have. I also pointed out some finish blemishes, and said if they fix them good, if they don't, no big deal. I just want my gun working, I'll make it pretty later. The only money I spent was on an M1, the guy didn't try to make me pay for any of the shipping or any thing else. That makes for good customer satisfaction in my opinion. I'll keep you up-dated on the results of the "fix".
