MOA stainless 10/22 receiver

Has anyone else had any expierience with this product? My expierience has been a bust! 1.Front mounting screw hole off center 2. Scope base holes off center 3. Radius on top doesn't match scope mounting base 4. Magazine slot unsquare with sloppy fit 5. Bolt and chamber(barrel) don't line up

Re: MOA stainless 10/22 receiver

Glad for the head's up. I been threaten to build a 10/22 for a while.
Kept us posted if they make it right for you. Can imagine they ain't cheap (price wise).

MORE OF THE STORY

I had it ordered from Brownells.They will refund but! I first contacted MOA,Mr.Mertz was reluctant to believe what I told him but said send it to him and he'd see what he could do.It took a month to get it back and all he did was weld up front hole and redrilled and threaded it,said the scope would probably adjust enough to make up for holes off center!Also said he didn't have any in stock that were any better! Finally get it back and go to shoot- it would not cycle dependably! It was shaving the bullets heavily and or jamming!Call MM back, suggest cutting about .030 from chamber end of barrel!Insted I machined 3 different SS shims to fit barrel.This still did not work! It would feed better but would jam because the empty casing wouldn't eject all the way clear!Finally I took both receivers and shot with each one(original cycles great) and compared casings. Found the firing pin is not striking as solid with the MOA, this makes me think the barrel(chamber)doesn't line up correctly with the bolt! Any suggestions??

You got more patience than me!! It would already be back a Brownell's along with a nasty note about the product!!

Re: MOA stainless 10/22 receiver

Captain, thanks for you reply. I do in fact have the letter written up! I am considering giving the manufacturer one more chance to make it right! If he doesn't, then there may well be pictures and the events posted for many to see! Trust me, I R PI$$#D!!! I really wanted a 10/22 that could have a scope mounted and be very rugged for chaisin a squrrl treein yeller cur dog! Looks like I'm gonna have to screw and epoxy my scope base on an aluminum receiver!

Maybe,just maybe!

After calling and explaining my problems to Bownells I called and talked to my gun dealer that ordered the MOA for me! Then the dealer called Brownells and had a lengthy discussion about the product ! Well today I decided to give MOA one more chance. I called him and told him who I was and reminded him of the original problem and told him about the rest ! He said send it back to him and he would send a new one! I sure hope it is better than the first! I'll let ya'll know!
