notice how much smaller the bearing surface is
Thank You Tom Archer for posting these pictures of the older RCJ forend and the newer type of LCS forend...... This picture clearly shows one of the disadvantages of the newer type LCS forend...... Notice how little bearing surface there is on the newer forend iron compared to the older forend iron.... I do not know about cost savings being a reason for LCS to change the design...... LCS got rid of milling the frame for the RCJ but now has to mill out the figure 8 in the forend iron ...... but LCS got rid of the actual roller too so that most likely saved money overall ..... I prefer RCJ guns but I like them all ..... Good Shooting To You All, Jent .... posted March 18 of 2021.
