    Default BCA “quality”

    While I financially profit from fixing this companies fuck ups (to be fair they do correct their fuck ups but many customers just want their gun fixed now and don*t want to wait for it to be sent back).

    The latest pile of trash started as a customer bringing in his rifle and saying the handguard was loose.

    Well it was, as in the barrel nut wasn*t tight. The rifle was a few days old.

    This is the mess I found after taking off the HG:

















    Now, as many of you know from building your own, a four sided nut is good, a six or eight would work but a five flat nut where the five flats aren*t even flats makes it impossible to tighten that nut except with maybe a pipe wrench.

    Also note the use of oil in the threads, I*ve yet to take apart a Palmetto or BCA upper that had moly on it, always light oil.

    I was also doing up a Trump gun for another customer also using a new and unfired BCA upper and I was able to use that nut to fix the other customers gun. On this upper I had to for the first time ever on a new factory upper use not only heat but also a four foot cheater pipe on my 1/2* breaker bar to remove the nut that was in no way torqued properly.

    So one was never torqued and the other was grossly over torqued.

    Again, I*m sure they*ll send a replacement barrel nut but c*mon, this is ridiclous.

    The Trump upper if anyone is interested, my third of last week:



    Just ranting... If you have a BCA rifle/upper id strongly suggest you take off the HG and check that nut for the correct torque. This isn*t the first of these I*ve had to fix.

    If BCA is Bear Creek Arsenal, their reputation is well known...

    Why?

    It makes me money.

    Just because Trump ruined my job and put me in debt doesn*t mean I hate him.
    Unlike the snowflakes here and elsewhere I can criticize someone but still agree with them on some things.
    Being a baglicker isn*t my forte, that*s for others to practice.

    And as long as people keep bringing this shit up I*ll keep responding in kind.
    Trump is an overall failure, so what? That doesn*t make me cry. Trump Did a few good things, very few, could have did much more if he wasn*t such a narcissist but that*s for history to decide.

    Nope, but my lust of provocateur baglickers keeps growing.

    Being ridiculed is ok, jesting is ok, friendly trolling is ok, but having a mod on a power trip mocking me and who also allowed a scum sucking asshole insult my children showed me this place is only for those who kiss ass.

    I stopped in out of sheer sheer boredom and to utilize the classifieds, hoping things have changed.

    Since the power mod is still a mod, and since the scummy immigrant that insulted my children is still a member, I*ll again take my leave from the general forum and only continue to use the classifieds.

    Continue to reload sir, it*s a great thing to know and a better thing to practice as this time should show others.
    Maybe you bumped your head and forgot.
    Thank you for keeping me safe.

    Those "hollowed out" flats ARE puzzling.

    Would they have a special tool just for their barrel nut?
    Looks weird.

    They must have a tool that clamps onto the flats and is used to tighten
    The nut. Looks like someone skewed the clamp and made an extra
    Flat. I have a dozen BCA barrel nuts and none look like that
