    Their shop their rules I suppose but it's strange.
    There fine with me bringing a rod and checking it myself. I agree that itís an odd policy. I wonder if their policy would be different if I purchased the can directly from them. They might feel like if theyíre just the middle man, they donít care what happens to the suppressor.

    I get it that they want to cover their asses, but thereís got to be away to do a simple procedure like this and still be protected. It seems odd that they will work on peopleís firearms if the worry of legal liability from sliding a rod in a hole is to much for them. It is what it isÖmy issue is resolved.

    Thatís ridiculous. Sounds like only thing you can do is check alignment of muzzle device and ensure itís concentric and hope for the best as far as can.

    Right now for them it's "not their chair, not their monkey" and they don't want to buy it. Try and remember McDonalds lost millions for serving hot coffee, now imagine McDonalds sold guns and suppressors. 99% of their customers don't even think about things like suppressor alignment so they are probably in slightly unfamiliar territory and defaulted to "let's wait until the transfer is complete."

    You came back with, what if I bring my own rod and do it myself and unlike LOTS of places that have already provided a "stated preference" they actually said "oh ok that's fine too." Which honestly makes them pretty easy going and sounds like a good place to deal with.

    You wanted something, they wanted to do it different and you found an acceptable alternative. All reasonable people, trying to be nice and continue to work with each other. It's nice when you have good folks on both sides of the counter, just enjoy it and try not to overthink it.
    It's hard to be a ACLU hating, philosophically Libertarian, socially liberal, fiscally conservative, scientifically grounded, agnostic, porn admiring gun owner who believes in self determination.

    Chuck, we miss ya man.

    I tend to agree the shop is worried about liability. But let's be real here. Most can manufacturers will fix a baffle strike under warranty as long as you didn't do something really stupid like try and make a 5.56 can a 30 cal can with a hand drill (this was a real situation one of the can companies I dealt with told me about. I about fell out of my chair laughing.) I guess the headache they are trying to avoid is having to send the can back for warranty and now being in the middle of it? But still. It makes me wonder if they would feel differently if you had bought the can from them? Because at that point refusing to do so would be bad customer service IMHO.
