Stoddard's Range and Guns, the only gun store and range in the City of Atlanta is looking to hire a full time gunsmith to handle an array of guns. We are in need of someone with experience and will provide armorer assistance. We have a large population surrounding our Atlanta store and we have another store in Douglasville GA. The area has been underserved and is in need of a great Gunsmith.
Somewhere along the line, I was of the impression Aimpoint Comp and Comp XD sights were REALLY tough, REALLY reliable, and guarenteed. And if they ever did become disabled they could most likely be serviced, within reason. Such is not necessarily the case and i now have two very nice Aimpoints Comps that are $400+ pieces of worthless scrap. (However, they do seem to work as a very clear 1X monocular!) The one Aimpoint Comp XD has been mine since Day 1. NEVER abused. Looks NIB. Near perfect glass/coating. Was mounted on a comped 9mm Springfield and used for Steel Challenge-type plinking (i.e. light loads only). The rheostat switch increasingly developed slop (no, it is not the two knob set screws) and it finally ceased to function. The second Aimpoint Comp had seen moderately more use but appeared fine. Very clean exterior. Near perfect glass. I was working the Shot Show at the time a friend showed up with it and complained of windage/elevation function problems. Thinking all Aimpoints were guarenteed (WRONG), repairable (WRONG), and mistakenly believing they would service their product for a nominal fee, I traded him straight across for one of my new Comp XD's. So ... I have sent 3 emails to Aimpoint inquiring about how to proceed. No reply (to any of them). Next I send them both to Aimpoint for est. repair cost - and I get back a VERY brief note 'they are beyond repair'. Interesting. They build them but they cannot replace a simple switch. They build them but they cannot re-establish windage/elevation function. Does anyone out there know of an independent Aimpoint repair station? ... like the fellas that used to redo/beef-up the old PDP3 sights? ~ one disheartened former Aimpoint supporter
I just bought my first two M&Ps (5" and 4" pro series 9mm) for IDPA and USPSA competition. I have shot 1911s for years and this is my first real jump into this type of pistol. Questions... 1 - What springs do I need to change out and at what recommended frequency? (my 1911s I changed firing pin spring and recoil spring every 2K rounds etc.) 2 - What parts do I need to keep in my repair kit? I have heard the strikers are prone to break...what else? Thanks!
Anyone ever have a shot timer repaired by CED somehow the screen cracked on one I borrowed from a buddy. So now I gotta make it right. Anyone with experience with their repair department in regards to cost and turnaround time. If it's not worth it I have the money to get him a new one just curious to see if it's worth the repair. The lesson here is STOP BEING A CHEAP BASTARD AND BUY YOUR OWN DAMN TIMER... LOL.
