Part of being a responsible armed American is understanding your firearm, inside and out. We should all know the mechanics of operation. With that said, I often hear firearm owners talk about fitting and tolerances of their chosen firearm. However, many of us use the terms interchangeably. How many of you understand the difference between the two terms?
And by understand, I don’t mean ONLY know the definition of each. I mean “understand” how the two terms apply to firearms, let’s say…for example; AK-47 vs AR 15 platforms. Benefits and downside of Fitting and Tolerance as they apply to the two platforms?
