I had an older SSA, 2016 era that was great. I decided to get another in 2020.

It felt far worse and had noticable grit, even in multiple lowers, grease, no grease. Tried emailing GA's CS, no dice. Tried calling, was on hold for 50 minutes. Gave up then.


I love their ACH charging handles though. But ill stick to Radian for the near future

If just about anyone else had started a topic like this without contacting the manufacturer first they would have gotten roasted and the thread would have gotten locked. But I guess if you make a few posts about statistical averages you get a pass?

Besides bendy gate what threads got locked?

I swore Geissele off a few years ago because I didn’t like his business practices but have debated on getting a 11.5 URGI and am genuinely curious how some in this thread have great luck buying his products and others keep getting the short end of the stick.

Show us, exactly, where in the code of conduct here that is required.  Hint: it isn't.

This juvenile notion that someone is required to contact customer service before posting about shoddy products from manufacturers was born from an incestuous relationship between website owners and manufacturers to protect manufacturers from having word get out about their shoddy products.

It's called false advertising.

"Geissele weapons stand out on the firing line.  I want it that way.  Their distinctive color and smooth and lustrous finish is immediately noticeable when a shooter picks up a Geissele rifle.   One way to make a weapon with this velvety, luxurious look that feels so good in the hand is to use very gentle hand and machine finishing methods to smooth the surface of the aluminum." - Bill Geissele

You don't understand, that's Molon, he's the arbiter of all things AR-15 and by god if his rail isn't shiny to his specifications he is entitled to raise all hell until Geissele goes out of business for the cardinal sin of sending out matte rails instead of shiny ones. They had one chance and they blew it, now it's time for them to suffer from Molon's justified wrath

Inconsistent is one thing. Feeling like a low quality USGI trigger but with two stages is another thing entirely.

Larue can make an excellent and consistent 2 stage trigger for $90, but Geissele can't get consistency for ~$200?

Too funny.

I'm just surprised that anyone who has been playing with AR15's for any length of time hasn't had anodizing like he is describing before. I've had that happen on more than one part I've used on AR's. It was so far down on my who gives a shit meter that i don't even remember who or what the parts were. Im more of a function over finish person anyway. I order an anodized black part and get a working black anodized part then im happy.

What ever makes you sleep at night, none of mine have gone chalky, and proper anodizing shouldn’t, yes it dries and lightens from sun light and chemicals, but not like Molons, there are other issues there than the color, but I’m betting your a expert in metallurgy, and andonizing now as well.

Where did I say my rail became chalky? Please learn to read.

Where did I say I was an expert on metal? Are you actually this stupid in person?

One of my G rails came from the factory, just like his. I took it out and shot it, and used it. It's no longer chalky. I get you guys just want to post photos of your guns, not use them. If Molon actually took his gun to the range and used it in a manner for which it's built the evil chalkiness would go away. Instead he rubs his dry ass hands on it, post a photo and bitches.

Negative review of CS but strangely never even bothered to contact the manufacturer.

Negative review of QC but has NO objective proof to support sub-standard anodizing of the product he received. Didn't even asses if the sealing coat is present or adequate (which is a simple thing to do). He's upset because the anodizing isn't cosmetically and tactilely meeting his standards. It's not "smooth, lustrous and velvety" to him.

You seem to be greatly confused so let me help you with that.  I stated multiple times that the anodizing looks and feels like shit compared to every other Geissele handguard that I've owned or seen images of on Geissele's website as well as compared to your beloved leader's own words of what the anodizing should look and feel like.  I don't give a shit what your standard is; that's the standard put forth by Bill Geissle in his own words and pictures and in past examples and that's the standard that I paid for and that's the standard that I should have received.

The same can be said for KAC. Their employee turnover rate is very high, or was. For a while there it was a constant rotation for LE/MIL reps.

*Not bagging on KAC as they have done awesome things for me personally in the past. Have personally talked to Trey and Dave Lutz and they went above and beyond for me. I'm a fan. I'll say the same thing about LMT too. Stand up guys.

With that being said, look at the hypocrisy here. No company is infallible. Like I said, I have received more barney shit from KAC than any other company. It should be considered a blem according to this thread, yet we have people paying EXTRA for this. lol

“Premium” aluminum?

Most manufacturers’ rails use 6061 (G, KAC, BCM, ADM, Hodge, MI, SLR, Aero, etc, etc, etc.).

So many companies use it that it’s pretty much the industry standard for handguards.

Bill’s hands have probably gotten soft from counting money the last few years.  

Maybe he changed the anodizing process to produce a rougher texture so his velvety paws could get a better purchase.

Don't give a shit about your seal test.  That won't change the shitty look and feel of the shitty anodizing job on this handguard.

This is how we lose good members who actually contribute.

I just don't even know what to say at this point.   The back and forth between a few guys is making it so much worse than it needs to be.

G is certainly a luxury in every aspect of the word. From the triggers to the rails to the scope mounts there's all products that do the job for less money even if they're aren't as refined of have that special look to it. Let's face it, the rail doesn't do anything that a $100 rail doesn't do but bend and turn white.

Yes because a 'luxury item' is the same as one of the most produced firearms ever. Lmfao.
And if you actually used your g-rail with the white chalkiness you'd notice it would clean up. But you're too dense to figure that out. What am I demanding of you? Lol. Holy shit having your disability must be rough.

The comparison between a watch that cost multiple thousands of dollars vs an ar15 has me lost.

Would I complian if my $20k watch had damage? Yes.
Would I complian if my $200 rail had a residue that came off with use? No.

The same can be said for KAC. Their employee turnover rate is very high, or was. For a while there it was a constant rotation for LE/MIL reps.

*Not bagging on KAC as they have done awesome things for me personally in the past. Have personally talked to Trey and Dave Lutz and they went above and beyond for me. I'm a fan. I'll say the same thing about LMT too. Stand up guys.

With that being said, look at the hypocrisy here. No company is infallible. Like I said, I have received more barney shit from KAC than any other company. It should be considered a blem according to this thread, yet we have people paying EXTRA for this. lol

Bill has a strong following.  Lots of loyal blind sheep fan boys I see.





Just amazing to read all this and see people so loyal to this company.  Yet when you speak to former employees and read online reviews of bus renamed company, tons of people hated the work environment and how they were treated.  

Don’t take my word for it.  Do your own research and you’ll see.  They don’t have the best reputation in that town for a good work environment.  Again do your own research.  It’s out there

I just don’t understand the blind zombie sheep loyalty.  Go to the G industry page.  You can’t say anything questioning G without massive fanboy blowback.  You think they sleep at Bills house and wipe his butt with their $100 bills.  

I’m not sure how people get that way.  Maybe they just so much money on this luxury item that they can’t stand to hear something negative about it or they will feel insecure about their purchase because it isn’t the best anymore?

I just don’t get it the fierce defending and they never met the guy or been to the shop
