i like my dpms recon lr308. i think the bolt looks fine.
Not a dumb question.This is probably a dumb question but if the issues is a mismatched bolt, how would installing a different random bolt help? Is the idea that it couldn't be worse but might be better?
There's youtube videos if you need instructions. I would just sell it and get another upper.Replacing the extension would require some lathe work to set the headspace and the receiver pin to gas port alignment, right? Or is there a tight industry spec that makes it a remove the old one and torque the new one on process?
Remington got a new CEO in 2015 or 2016. He announced that he's correcting all the problems they had during the "freedom group" years. We'll see, but it sounds like DPMS is under Remington's new CEO now:By the way, it looks like DPMS has been dropped by Freedom Group/Remington. The only information on the DPMS site is contact info for Consumer Service.
