I have serial number 22 of this series of junk. I purchased this off of gunbroker from a fellow with the user name forest jump, which ended up being charles from st george arms selling from TN, while his ffl lists him in AZ. Already turned him in to the atf for that. Having been told that my first  rifle was complete and ready to ship in april of 2017 I sent the remainder of the amount due. Charles is in full possession of the full amount due for the rifle. two years has gone by and I still have not received it.

On to the one which I have received. I have put 60 rds through this thing. after many light primer strikes and failure to ejects I stopped trying. I contacted st george arms about my issues. after 2 months they finally emailed me the directions on how to field strip this scrap heap. I took the weapon to a certified master gunsmith and had him look at it to see if I was missing something. I was, the gun was firing from incomplete lock up. Due to the bolt cam being cut incorrectly the bolt was out of time. this has caused a series of issues with the gun. There are metal shavings all over and the pin that the cam rides on is nearly destroyed.

This gun was supposed to ship with a muzzle brake and magazine. It shipped with neither. It did include a nice little note that stated firing with out a brake would void my warranty. So I went out and found a muzzle brake that would fit and put it on. took to the range and the issues began.

St george arms has stated that I voided my warranty. I fired only mil surplus ammo and American eagle ammo when I was having issues with fail to eject and light primer strikes. after my issues I noticed that the primers were lightly hit so I did load up some of my own which are lower than mil spec and set the primer closer to the base of the case to see if that was the issue. light strikes again.  I measured the firing pin and big surprise its out of spec. Nothing I did to the rifle could have caused a firing pin to be to short or the cam on the bolt to be cut wrong.

I have notified st George arms and any one associated with them and given them time to respond.  Should they choose not to respond I will post all the emails back and forth here for every one to see what kind of people they are.

I actually prefer My M2. I have a 107 and an 82. The 107 of the two is much easier on the shooter. The leader wasn't too bad shooting. The concerns of firing out of full lock up and loosing part of my face take the fun out of it though.
