DSA Receiver Magazine Fit Video

It was difficult to convey the issues I have experienced with DSA receivers and mag fit, using still photos.

So an associate came by this morning and we shot this short video to demonstrate.

This is the shit I have to deal with almost every day - conclude from it what you will.

Now that DSA can see the problem with their own eyes I'm sure they'll recall all the defective receivers.

"Fail"

Pretty much sums it up.

Mark - Thanks for sharing the video. I didn't realize the DSA magazine fit problem was that bad. Frustrating to say the least.

I have three gray hair on the top of my head (coincidentally, they appeared when I met my ex). And my beard is starting to get two gray patches. I don't think I'll be going bald any time soon.

I didnt either at your age. 50s seems to be where you'll know or not. I love my wife we got married 3 years ago and my hair loss became geometrically increased

Always appreciate the truth that comes out of ARS, thank you.

I think the video would have been a wee bit better had you shown the mags were loaded.... not that I don't believe they were. I saw glimpses of what looked like cartridges..

Well,

I wonder if new DSA assembled guns leave the DSA facility with the same issues? Either the guns leave the DSA facility screwed up, demonstrating they have no QC or they allready know the issues and simply dont fix the stripped receivers they ship.

Not good either way.
