The following opinion was offered by a client in Colorado after the second time his rifle failed to extract a live round from the chamber: "I ain't plannin' to shoot any dangerous game with it so it's no issue to me."
Maybe so - but that rifle is not reliable. Here are my criteria for an unreliable rifle - even in Colorado:
The first time it has a miss feed.
The first time is fails to extract a case or a cartridge.
The first time when the trigger had been pulled when the safety was on and it fires a shot when the safety is released. No fixing - it will go back to the dealer and replaced.
When it is not possible to shoot a 1.5" group at 100 yards.
When groups grow after the third shot.
When an off the shelf rifle bought in South Africa from a dealer shows any of the above it is returned as unreliable.
