You guys have to remember you bought a "Clone" not a German built gun that cost 2-3 times more. There is a giant difference between quality and cost of a Ford vs. Mercedes. A clone is meant to shoot, wear the hell out, replace parts, repeat wear the hell out, etc. Of course, if money is no object you can do that to a German gun. These are weapons not collectable shotguns occasionally taken to a club to show off and shoot a round of skeet. They are meant for a sling scratching the crap out of them, dragged across exposed mags in pouches, propped and scatched on barricades and fired until extremely hot.
