Finally got my Guide M3 Grease Gun! The transfer took right at 8 months from check cashed to approval.
Had a minor problem with the gun free running with a single trigger pull and release. It turned out that the bolt was a little beat up where the sear catches it.
I already had a parts gun so I just substituted the whole bolt and guide rod assembly and the gun runs great now. I may be able to file the damaged area of the other bolt so it works properly.
It didn't take long for us to run 500 rounds thru it, so I ordered some more ammo.
Just happy to finally have it in my hands after a LONG wait!
The thing I liked about this gun was the "Guide" logo stamped lower on the mag well so it's a little plainer to see. I live where Guide Lamp was and where all of these guns were made!
I'm not sure but from some of the grease guns I've seen, it looks like the lower serial number guns had the Guide logo down low, and then at some point on the later guns they rearranged the stampings and the Guide logo ended up partially hidden behind the mag release.
I'm thrilled to have this sub-gun!!
