A few times, after sending in a Glock with expired factory OEM night sights, they actually swapped them out for a newer set at no cost. Not brand new sights, but only a few years old. I'm guessing they were sitting on a surplus that were too aged to sell, was a nice surprise.
They are a little more cautious with the newer gen guns due to the whole "not supposed to be sold in MA" thing. Last time I sent in a Gen 4 with a messed-up frame, they requested a copy of the FA-10 to prove it was registered in MA before they would replace with a new frame. They've never asked...

If you receive a Proceed on the first tier, correct. If you're bumped to Further Review, I recommend making a sandwich and a cup of coffee. Average hold time for FBI examiners the last 2 days has been 1 1/2 hours.
I've seen dozens of Windham rifles sold where I work, and yet to hear of one bad experience with them. Seen a few S&Ws with defects, and a surprising defect rate on Ruger AR-556 (about 30% I've seen had issues, either out of spec chamber or improperly reamed holes on the FSB). No experience with...
