Hey US Paratrooper, Welcome!! My Mil Spec had some FTE problems. I sent it to SA and they polished the throat and adjusted the ejector. Had one other FTE after but I did not get upset due to the fact I had only 150 rnds through it.... since then it has been flawless. It was still cutting its teeth. I would run several rounds through it before I would rely on it just to make sure all is well. With that said, I am very happy with mine!

Welcome US Paratrooper.
Tuner and Wichaka prolly have most of the corporate knowledge ever known to man at their fingertips.
Sit back and cruise the forums--John's done a great job with the site.
PS: Almost forgot Stans-he fits right in with the first two mentioned!!
