Would this model need to be worked on by someone to make it carry worthy? Thanks for the post and explanations.
The grip screw bushings are loctited in with red. A small amount of heat will break the bond. As for reliability, well, while there are things I would suggest correcting, if you read my range report you will see that it was pretty flawless in function for that short test. That being said, I would still correct some minor things if I were going to put my life on it...but then I am a smith.

Respectfully,
