    If you are not aware, there is a very active LMT owners group on the book face. Joe Hagny, senior LMT employee, is in the group and handles everything that comes up personally. Might be worth your while to join that group, it’s “Lmt Owner Group”.

    I don't have a Faceplace account, but used my wife's to search for the "Lmt Owner Group". Nothing close came up.

    It says "Private group". I have no idea how a private group works, but perhaps that's why I couldn't see it.

    Try his email: HajnyJ@lmtdefense.com .

    There is quite a bit of talk about LMT quality issues both on facepalm and reddit. While quick change barrel is a cool idea, I think it has limited applicability while adding weight. Given the LMT cost, it may be cheaper to just buy another upper.
    For the record, I have a 2013 MWS, 2022 Estonia rifle, another MWS with SLK8 upper that I assembled separately and an MRP-L.
    Lewis is of the opinion that "semi auto rifles" only get semi auto carriers. They also "gas" their MRP-L rifles for carbine buffers.
    All rifles function fine and have good fit and finish.

    That's a Bill Ruger move. I wasn't really in the market, but bought a Defender SBR simply because it was offered at such a great price. After getting it, I found out that I had to buy a FA bolt carrier in order to be able to run it on my M16.

    They sell “full auto” carriers to anyone, they just don’t include them in their complete rifles, IIRC, colt used to do this too and some other silly things like different fcg pin sizes and not milling the lower receiver pocket.

    I understand that you can buy regular LMT carriers, but I shouldn't have to because one should have been included with the gun. Colt used to do that crap in an attempt to curry favor with gun control advocates. It didn't work, so they gave up on it. LMT is having to stock two different types of carriers, so if anything, it's costing them money. I can think of no reason other than being sympathetic to gun control advocates for LMT to do such a thing.

    Thanks for the contact information, I messaged Joe about the situation.

    Update: Received my MWS back from LMT today. They replaced just the upper receiver which now has a nice fit to the lower. There are still minor cosmetic issues with this new upper receiver. There is a gray patch of I assume dry film on a T slot of the pic rail. Also, there are two nicks through the anodizing under the dust cover, probably induced during a sloppy install. I havenít fired this rifle to function test it and probably wonít. I have lost interest in their product and donít plan on purchasing/recommending LMT in the future.
