Those recurring problems are what caused me to spin up a 22 TCM barrel for my Savage AXIS. I have re barreled several 22 TCM rifles to get them to shoot. 2 had already been back to the factory, and still didn't reach customer expectations.
The only RIA left in my safe is a 4 digit serial 22 TCM/ 9mm pistol, sent to replace my 3 digit that wouldn't shoot accurately. Custom sights, re crown, some small parts replaced, Slide re fit etc. it now shoots very well with either barrel.
Sad to see the decline. The "no parts" policy is helping my bottom line right now, but hurting the brand. As years ago, with Norinco went the same way with their 1911. folks were buying them, bringing them to a local gunsmith to be rebuilt into a competition or carry piece. Usually only reusing the frame, barrel and slide. ( The quality parts)
If it turns $$$ into Smoke and noise, I'm there.
