I also shoot a pre-XN gun. For the parts that are pretty much unobtainable, I bought a spare parts gun. So far so good but when those parts have been used, I think I'm out of luck.
Rather than spend more dollars on a gun that may turn into a boat anchor, I'm looking at either an M2 or Versamax going forward.
Same here. I have two Akdals but once those are done, I'll probably switch to something else.
Hopefully by then there will be an option that runs well without tons of tuning, that doesnt break bolts and other parts left and right, with factory mags that dont need mods to run.
I was hoping for Rhino's AR10-based shotgun, but I doubt that thing will ever see the light of day.
