    Ok, I called the builder, turns out they checked mag fitment using a pro mag (they called it a magpul until I made them double check) since they don't have steel HK mags apparently. I used a marker to see exactly what was rubbing and dremeled the inside of the mag well in those spots, now it works fine and you can't tell by looking at the outside. Its not Century or PTR, I don't want to put them on blast just yet. Also a little irritated I asked for a standard front sling loop and I got an ambi, asked for my demilled receiver scraps back (for a keychain) still no sign of them.

    IMHO if you gonna post about issues then not call out who did the build then why vent to the membership so other can benefit from your experiences. Just saying....

    So all the issues have been resolved to my satisfaction. The receiver scraps have arrived, HK magazines now fit fine and none of the modifications are outwardly visible. They didn’t charge me for cutting the 93 length cocking tube support to 53 length, included a nice soft case, and rear diopter sight (which I didn’t provide). The serial # is well under 15 so they might not be as well versed in rifle caliber guns as their pistol caliber ones, which have a good reputation. The front ambi sling mount has grown on me so I’m satisfied with the over all turn out and will probably get one of their SDs or 10mm guns in the future. The builder was Omega guns.
