I do agree with you and from a ďproductĒ design I can understand why itís there, even if itís a legal placebo but with "the reasoning" Iím just guessing and thereís enough of that on this thread.

I guess as a business youíd have to make a call, they did, it happens.

Have you tested this? Give them a call saying youíve bought a gun second hand and itís running at 13ft - that would give you answer.

If manufacturers behaved in this way in any other industry they would be out of business. Yes, in my view the customer is God. Without him you have nothing.
I donít know enough about how they go about testing and manufacturing guns to comment at length. I find it difficult to accept that they donít test every single gun because you could be shipping 1000ís of useless units and that clearly isnít happening.

I guess your ideal test case is this: Some purchases a brand new gun, itís still in the box, still sealed. Stopped by the Police, gun is tested and itís over - what happens?
