Now I am angry and insulted. Got the V3 back..............
Remember this thread? http://forums.gunsandammo.com/discussion/36548/remington-v3-range-report-and-problem
Well I got a ph call from my LGS that the V3 was ready to pick up last week. Called in today and picked it up along with a letter from the Remington agents.
Here is what it looked like when I first took pics of the problem with the gas compensation plug assemblies and the threads.
And here is what it looks like now...........
Both assembly threads are now less than perfect as it appears that after recutting the threads on the defective one, they screwed it into the opposite side and damaged the threads on the female part of the one that was perfect...........
And here are pics of the 2 female counterparts
The opposite side ( which was the good one)
And.............here is a copy of the letter from the Remington agents
Are they trying to tell me that to strip and clean the V3 I need to send it to a gunsmith???
I have owned Remington shotguns for over 35 years, from 1100's through to 1187's and never had any problems following instructions on how to strip them and reassemble them for cleaning purposes.
Next step is to drop a line to Remington USA expressing my displeasure. I will have to wait a bit though so my blood pressure/temperature goes down I guess.
Watch this space..........
Still enjoying the trip of a lifetime and making the best of what I have.....
