2. thanks for posting this info. Btw, I spoke with Classic Firearms yesterday afternoon . They said they were aware of this JRA recall, but non of the JRA BM59 rifles sent to Classic are/were affected or involved in the recall.

Oops......Looks like there are more out there. Must have missed this one.

Yes, there are, and people should really be paying attention....or let Darwin's ideas take over and let the natural conclusion happen to them.

You would think, wouldn't you? It appears that thinking is another dying art, in this day and age.

Kind of flies in the face of reality, doesn't it? Who knows what to believe now?
As I alluded to earlier, I wouldn't be firing any BM59 unless I talked to the manufacturer "personally",....and then I would need some assurances, proof, ....or a refund.

I'm afraid you are right Sean.

What I wonder about sometimes, is how many other cast receivers, such as Armscorps, Fedords, etc....are there out there, and how many chicom receivers are there that we know nothing at all about the metallurgy on? ....that haven't even seen a thousand rounds yet?....and are set to let go..... any day now?

Pay attention guys, unless you want to end up like one of Darwin's weak ones... Extinct!
