do not buy ANY vulcan products, they are crap, used to be called Hesse, they had such great name value that they changed the name.

Save a few bucks more and buy ANY other brand if you can.

I've always thought someone should make a T-shirt that says "Friends don't let friends buy Hesse/Vulcan"!

A friend of mine bought a Vulcan Arms AR15 Sept 2, to test it and see if it was a good gun or not. It comes with a 1 year warranty so he filled the warranty card out and mailed it and he has fired 760 rounds through it and has not had any malfunctions or any problems at all with it. He is seeing how many rounds he can put through it before it tears up or if it will last for the year.
He is one of those people that likes to test firearms for himself to see if all the talk about them is true or not.

They make a .50 BMG. I read on another forum that one blew up on its owner. Last I heard they weren't answering his mail or honoring their warranty.

If the guy was using surplus 50bmg ammo then they won't do anything for him. They void the warranty if you use surplus ammo in their 50bmg's.
