Really like your Stress-Levelled bolts.

I find that I have to order from you because many of the LGS do not normally stock Armalite rifles/carbines, unless they are .308.

Not at all. It protects Armalite from some nimrod who throws his rifle down his paved driveway & then sends it to them for warranty work because the finish is flaking off. Or shooting double charged reloads & trying to get a new rifle. Or leaving it wet in the basement for 2-3 years & sending it in. Believe me, there's all sorts of reasons for "limiting" one's warranty on a product.

19 and 26 are indeed the same, and I take the full blame for that. I will rectify that at a future date. Believe me, the people here have enjoyed pointing it out to me!

Ugh, although I respect the company, there's lots of duplicate material. Love the idea "101" however this would really be more effective with "51" (or whatever) which fit on fewer pages, easily attached/printed, etc. etc. Quick marketing fix...

Yep, and like anomad said, #25 should say brake not break.

My last build was on an Armalite upper and lower. I like the fit and finish on your lowers and dig the roll mark.

Maybe you can share with us the name of an AR-15 manufacturer who offers an unlimited lifetime warranty? A company that will repair or replace your rifle no matter how bad you mistreat it, no matter how negligent you are, and without regard to any other thing you might possibly do to the rifle to break it?

I'm gonna guess such an AR manufacturer doesn't exist. They ALL limit their warranty to some degree, as they should.

The only firearms company I know of that offers a "no questions asked" lifetime warranty is Hi-Point. And, well...those are $199 firearms made out of lead. (I'm kidding about the lead part...but not by much.)

I'm not saying that the limited lifetime warranty thing is bad. I'm just saying that this isn't a reason for me to buy an ArmaLite over other brands.

Last time I checked, the Armalite warranty was one of the best in the business. Many are far less. For instance; Bushmaster's is one year and ten days.

One year? Sorry Bushy, but if you don't trust 'em then neither do I! Maybe we should ask owners of the early 'bolt eating' Bushy 308s how they feel about one year warranties?

I will stick with Armalite because they provide great guns and great service. Over 15 years of personal experience working with them has me convinced.

As I understand it, the "limited" part is only limited to the original purchaser. Pretty much everything else is covered.

I like Armalite and all, but there are some little things they need to update, like using "F" FSBs and taper pins to hold them. Not sure if they use those now, because the Armalite i've handled was a few years old.
