One more time

Why are they selling rifles with gas ports that are to large?

It's not the first week they are in business.

And why not take 2 seconds to check when you get the shipment in or while building the rifle?

It's just a question of quality Gary.

Parts can be slapped together and hope for the best. Since they offer a lifetime warranty maybe that's how they do business. They will catch the lemons after the customer gets "soured".

Or you can check, check, check and you will catch 99.9% of the lemons before the customer does. That is of you care and know what you are looking for.

Now when I put a free-float hand guard on mine I get rid of that front site -- I'm gonna measure the gas port hole --

No need to if it's running fine and ejecting at 3 to 4 o'clock. Yours isn't a DSI...lol

A small Local business especially located on Long Island depends on a solid reputation for service. You can expect a product to fall through the cracks because of a defective part and quality control, however, customer service is always more important. Having a product returned from service to a customer that still doesn't work will definitely ruin it's reputation.

Well its fixed and it has a life time warranty. Sucks it had to go back a second time but it happens. I had a car go back 4 time to get the door switch fixed cause the light would stay on and the doors would lock.

This is basically my thought on the matter. Things happen, it's a small company. Knowing the company will make right any issues that arise is the most important thing for me. When I really blew my top earlier in this thread was when it seemed like I was being jerked around.  In the end they made it right and I'm happy with the resolution.

This thread was important, it showed a representative acknowledge the problem and somehow the ball was dropped. It would have been better if the owner or a representative from DSI made a post to assure it's customers are a top priority. I had an issue with my DSI and was lucky to have someone know exactly what the problem was. I too would like to support a local business. I like the owner of Henry, no nonsense will post on a forum and speak to a customer who has an issue and post they were given a full refund.

And the port hole is 5/64 ths. or 0.078 right where it should be --
