    They get a shipment of them every week or two, some of which they rapidly sell directly, and some of which they forward to partner dealers. They suggest you keep an eye at your local dealer, as they could have a copy arrive in the mail at random times.

    This model is currently unavailable.

    I ended up with a rifle that has this spacer. Is is possible to send the handguard to Spectre and receive back one not needing this spacer?

    Is there is any specific reason the design was changed from 3 hex screws to 2 to hold the handguard in place? Also wondering the same as mentioned above, if a spacer was used do we have any options to get it swapped for a proper fitting handguard?

    This would be great. Is it possible for the MCR to have a bad type lever?

    Received my WS-MCR recently and I am shocked at how difficult it is to remove the front and rear takedown pins. I needed to use a punch and an armors hammer to lightly tap them out, using a pen with as much pressure as I could would not pop them. Putting them back in proved to be even more challenging. In addition to that, the castle nut was loose enough to turn with the fingers.

    I have tools to work on my firearms, but realizing many don't, this would be quite disappointing.

    Any comments from other users?

    Same here, it was dry and when oiled some corrosion stain started oozing out. Definitely needs some further thinking...
