    Another first world problem here.

    The barrel tuner came before my gun I have been waiting for near five months for.

    Looks like crap but was packaged very well so came from the factory this way.

    Is it just me or have the rest of you been getting what looks like reject parts from FX as well?

    Regulator rod was sent to me like this unusable and worse than the one I had just removed from the gun.

    They did replace it after I sent pics and several emails but I paid for the part which should have been warrantied.

    The trigger sear I got was a bit rough as well.

    I also bought three moderator parts and they were dinged up too although not as bad as the barrel tuner.

    Oops almost fergot the ugly poor shooting liner I got too. I also had to return it.  New one was great though.

    Unless someone is blind these defects can easily be seen.

    I love my Impact but really?

    Then again they replaced my rear block for no charge, a $200 part, even when my gun was slightly past warranty.  Go figure.

    I really don't mind a few dings on my stuff but I would rather put the first few of them there myself.

    Really hard to say kudos and boo in the same breath but that is they way it is.

    And yes I could use a little bread with my whine.

    Dude at fx prices you should have flawless workmanship. I mean some mistakes come with any manufacturing regardless of price but it seems like quality control should have caught that before it went out. Fx makes some amazing innovative parts. The barrels are particularly impressive with how they can just design one and make it in one in an hour. That allows for some pretty impressive testing capabilities. However I have read several posts now of people complaining about imperfections in their products. For now I am staying away from them. I like more classical looks anyway so perhaps air arms is just more my style. It's possible that they are trying to keep up with their considerable demand and the speed of manufacturing is causing a few flaws to manifest. At any rate they will give you a new one but it sucks you have to deal with that.

    Bio, So sorry. That looks unacceptable!!!  I picked up the first available Harmonic Tuner from the Utah Aurguns store the day after RMAC and it was as you would expect. Perfect. Your "new" Reg rod replacement is worse than my bad "old" one! I got a new "warranty" reg kit today from FX and this is one is very much new and not "second hand" gouged. Hmmm?

    Yes, FX makes the barrel tuner and from what i have seen they are in better shape than mine.

    That tuner looks like it was used for testing.

    It sure does not look new and that is what I paid for.  I am expecting my M3 to look good, if it ever gets here, so would prefer the barrel tuner to look the same.

    Probly near a quarter of what I receive from everywhere is beat up or defective or needs werqed on just to function.  I expect that from China, India and Turkey but not from Sweden, Germany and the USA.  Not much I can do about it.  I all but gave up and just accepted it for many years but now I am on the warpath.  I want new stuff that fits, functions and looks new cuz it should be that way!!!  Grrr…

    There, now that the whining is over with, my Eaglevision scope cam, from the UK, just arrived and is just gorgeous.  ;^)  The fit and finish on every single piece, and there are many, is perfect.

    The poor quality reports for FX products certainly are numerous these days.  One does have to consider the quantity of sales items though  Not sure what the issues are at FX.  At least there are other manufacturers to shop at.  Not saying they would be any better though, but certainly less quality issue reports with lower sales numbers.

    Ha you hit it on the head with the sales numbers.  FX makes many more guns than most and most come here to complain so it would seem they have a serious problem where I don't think they do I have just been extremely unlucky cuz they are not the only offenders.

    I didn't even notice the dings on the moderator at first. The micro finish on that thing is pretty rough.

    New one is on the way already sent the old one off.  Some companies are so easy to deal with.
