    Further left is better quality, so the Colt is more reliable then the LMT and the DPMS?

    How much more reliable?

    Is the DPMS ten times more likely to fail?
    What is your definition of reliable?

    I don't understand what you have against the chart... It simply lists how certain manufacturers follow, or don't follow, the TDP. (If my understanding of the chart is not correct, correct me.)

    If you're bushy, is "out of the box reliable" for your needs, that's great. I don't see where you're going about the chart being worthless.

Otherwise, all of these provocations are senseless and troll-like.
    Gee Justin you made a number of statements related to statistics above, where are the numbers. You said "statistically insignificant" did you make that up?

    Pointing out that the chart does not measure quality because it fails to address failure rates is not the same as claiming to know the relationship between a particular feature and failure of the end product.

    I don't know does lack of finish under the front sight base results in a weapon more likely to fail? According to the chart it results in an inferior weapon so that means less accurate, shorter life span, more likely not to function out of the box or what?

    I doubt it has any affect on the above, but I am a chart skeptic.

    Don't forget the numbers you implied you had.

Perhaps you should look at your picture more objectively so you can clearly see what was discussed. Or perhaps in the future better picture quality. New camera, better lighting would be a start. Shall we find you a chart for cameras?

    I was going to go hunting when I got home, but it's raining. I'll bust out the D90 and my lil 50mm lens for better pics.

    Where does it say that?

    This is what is says: "There have been some reports of these parts rusting in the unprotected area, but it is unlikely that rust in these locations will affect the function of the carbine."

    Excellent

    D90 is GTG, you should have a very nice picture to share then.

    Seacoast it sounds as almost if you want a "Guarantee" that whatever you purchase based upon the information provided will never have issue. The "Chart" merely shows what brands use what, and if they are reliable parts and will be the least likely to experience failure. Like all things there are failure points in everything.

    Did the Priest give you a Guarantee that your marriage would be perfect after you said your vows. Did your wife Guarantee to you that she would remain pristine and beautiful and not show her age or gain weight after having kids. Did your mirror give you a Guarantee that you would always look "awesome" in that sleeveless t-shirt that accentuates your goatee and mullet. NO

    Just find what suits you and be done. Anything from the 1st left to the 5th position on the chart shall serve you well out of the box without upgrade.

    I didn't imply anything. I said you should speak with Pat Rogers, Grant Timberlake, or Rob Sloyer. Before you do that, I encourage you to read more from SMEs on this site, Lightfighter, and even ARFCOM, and you will discover what I'm saying is entirely accurate.

    You have yet to demonstrate any knowledge at all on this matter, so I don't see why I should go about wasting more time to cook you a proverbial steak so that you can eat most of it and then insult my cooking after your stomach is full.

    How did the wheels fall off of this so quick?

    I do not think the information seacoast is demanding exists. I'm unaware of any scientific study, that lists the numbers of rifles produced by every manufacturer, and also has an all encompassing list of every single malfunction, by every single rifle, with every single owner/operator, distilled down to cause, to eliminate ammo, magazine and operator error.

    So, yea, you can keep demanding "proof", because you know its not there.

    What we do have though, is a large number of anecdotal accounts, as reported here, and other web forums. Much of it, is reported by top level, well known and respected instructors, who by nature of their job, see alot of carbines, all under, reasonably similar conditions and round counts. They can ID the malfunction and the cause. After a while, trends begin to emerge, again while unscientific, there it is.

    Par Rogers and Larry Vickers, have both noted trends of poor performing guns from specific manufacturers. Reports of an entire swat team's issue of guns, not working properly, and an LE rep on vacation. These are men who don't have the luxury of waiting for customer service.
    I personally witnessed the same type of situation.

    Paul Howe, chimed in, and I mentioned his findings also, he is the only one who has not seen an issue with one particular brand. Its a stumper, but even he has stated, he will keep better track of it, and see what happens.

    So what do we have left to go on? A list of known better or at least minimal parts quality, manufacturing and assembly techniques and procedures, etc. etc. "the chart" as it were.

    No one said, a gun from the left side, guarantees you trouble free performance, and a gun from the right, will automatically be a headache. Only that, the chances of a good, trouble free, reliable and durable gun, will come from the left side.

    If you read the "explanations" part, as a consumer, you can decide what is and what is not important to you.
    Remember though, there is a difference between a "better product" and a "better choice".

    Now, wheres that "tap out" emoticon I've been asking for

    As I pointed out early on it is like the consumer report that ranks the Hyundai over the Honda because the Hyundai has more speakers and better acceleration. It is missing the quality of manufacturing component.


    I am open to any reasonable and understandable definition of reliability.

    I have been using the statement of failure to function out of the box.

    Let say when it is delivered reliablity is failure to fire, failure to cycle or extremely poor accuracy.

    A true analysis would include time and rounds fired.
