Probably because it’s bullshit

So, the Jacksonville PD needs a lot of money to replace its rifles that seem to go off all be their own self. Olympic, the maker of the rifles, says that they are covered under their warranty and it’s a waste of tax payer money to replace them. Also notes their armorer never got training and can’t identify the problem.

Looks to me like the PD just wants new toys and money for the toys.

    Sounds to me like someone “worked” on the triggers of the rifles in question.
    Most AR rifles from the factory have triggers that are politely described as F’ing awful.
    A little stoning of the sear surfaces smooths out the trigger nicely. AND removes the microscopically thin hardened surface of those parts. Thus exposing the soft metal underneath, which quickly wears away. Result?
    AR’s that go off when you chamber a round or double when fired.

    I got the ALG Mil-Spec from Midway for $45. Vast improvement. They have a higher grade for $65.

    I’ve love to see their maintenance records. I’d guess that the problems are because of the untrained armorers and a lack of annual preventive maintenance.

    When and where will the surplus rifles go on sale to the public?

    For a $45-$65 trigger replacement, I think I’d have a reliable and safe rifle.

    Or are these “real” AR-15s, with full auto capability? And will that be used as an excuse not to resell these fine rifles to the public, whether these are or are not full auto capable?

    Sounds they need to learn what brands to stay away from…

    The JSO officers were in my shop complaining about those rifles… some of the things they were saying were absolutely unbelievable. For example, they claimed after approximately 3,000 rounds they went from 1″ groups to 5″.

    Problems with OlyArms? This is my shocked face!

    They just fired by themselves. Just like my Audi drove itself into the wall. Oddly that happened again with my Toyota.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
