Excellent Service

It looks like a pin is missing which would fix the front assembly to the receiver. Has anyone else had this problem?

I emailed ATI about this problem and received a reply the very next day. To identify the exact part which was missing, the sent an exploded diagram with all of the parts identified. I told them which screw was missing and they sent the replacement by FedEx which arrived today. I'll try to install it tomorrow. Their service department is great. Good and rapid replies and fast shipping.
A gun is like a parachute. If you need one and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again!
