Congrats!

There is hardly a better feeling than getting a new machine gun and taking it out to the range and have it run like it should.

They seem to be taking longer and longer. Well, just as long as you have it is the important thing. Always fun to see new arrivals. Thanks for sharing!

pat,
Nice gun. Several board members, myself included own this particular variant (AO1928ac). Interesting that most of them are in the 150,000 serial # range.

Very nice !! Great wood on it as well. I have an AOC 1928AC to but it's in the 133,000 SN range and has the paddle selector switches.

Congrats and enjoy ! I have an out of state transfer going on now...it'll be 3mos into it before they get my form 4 paperwork. Looks like I have a very long wait then.

I notice that the Cutts will rotate slightly.
Is this normal?

NO. It sounds like a chime in from PK would be great on this matter.

Possible explanation.... if the barrel was removed, replaced, or just rotated, someone would want to re-align the sight vertically. This means re-drilling the pin hole, and probably (if it moves about 5 degrees) the new hole aligns closely with the old hole location, so the pin rotates between both locations. Just a guess...

I suggest carefully removing the pin, and taking off the comp to see whats going on under there!

But - nice gun! shoot it a lot and ENJOY IT!
