As he stated in his post, your current one will cause poor consistancy at best, getting it re-cut may not be that expensive and might get your gun to the required and expected standard.
I hope you get it sorted out mate.
Thanks - as good as Tench's re-crowning effort appears to be, I'm afraid I'm not prepared to chuck any more time and money at this gun.. either it gets sorted by the wholesaler and gets sold working in the state it should, or it gets sold as a project / box of bits. Sick of wasting time and money on it tbh...

Thanks - it's great to hear from someone whose had similar experience to myself! I think you're probably right about the level of rejects too. Sadly, if their other products are anything to go by HW quality certainly isn't getting better as time marches on
