Good news. Hope you are less disappointed with the outcome.

The Elite was mailed on Tuesday evening 3/19. Remarkably Century contacted me 1st thing Friday morning 3/22. They said the crown on the barrel is bad. They asked if I would be ok with changing the barrel because it would have a different serial number. I told them I was fine with that. That's the last I heard about it. I'm feeling pretty good about it. It would seem they "really" looked at it this time.
Keep the paper work in the event you sell it. Two numbers will throw up flags.

Surprised they didn’t stamp the correct number and destroy the original.

Final chapter. I went home one evening and there was a UPS tag that said "adult signature required". Even though I sent it from a FFL and requested it be returned there. Regardless my wife was able to acquire the package. I would think an email like hey your pistol is done we are shipping, but no communication from them after ok was given for barrel replacement. Alright I know that's trivial. I was pleasantly surprised that they did include 2 test fired targets and stated it was fired with 147gr Lawman. I posted their 2 targets. I shot 20 rds offhand at 25 yds. I had fired a magazine from a LCP at the target 1st and those holes are taped over. When I look at their targets and mine I'd have to say it shoots a little low and maybe a little right. Plenty good enough for IDPA and self defense. I didn't have any Lawman. It was fired with 115gr Remington training ammo. I'll try some different ammo through it in the future and see what it likes.

i have oddly shaped hands. BIG palms, short thin fingers. its goofy when buying anything that, say, fits in/on your hand. being said, i am a little less than thrilled with the mag well flare after putting quite a few rounds down range. it kinda digs in a little. simple fix however, High Voltage insulating tape+Super 88 brown electrical tape. (guess what i do for $$) Part 2 is also the sights. Particularly how they were in now way close from the factory. and the bed of my truck is not where i like to tinker with anything. I have all but destroyed my small non-marring hammer messing with that freaking sight. tap tap tap SLAM tap Slam, my god its never enough or over the top. like it doesnt want to line up. so I am borrowing a cheater. Trijicon RMR to proof that its just me that cant fine tune that rear post and that bore lazers in the form of a cartridge are garbage. (the laser is fact. avoid the $40-60 version of these things. if the RMR cowitnesses with the front sight im going to get XS sights. I recommend these to everyone. fastest iron sight target acquisition ive ever seen. definitely check into these! im basically self justifying spending the money haha thanks for the outlet.

**** :idea: low left is where like 99% of shooters impact. low left if 98% of the time always the shooters flinch. and speed tip, by the target with the correction ring. where you impact it with tell you why you missed if you are in the <1% category.

Recap is I bought the tungsten Elite 1st. Man this is a great pistol I thought. Ordered a green one for my collection. Shoots low and right. I filed a claim with Century. The 1st guy pretty much blew me off, I pursued the matter telling them I wanted them to test fire the pistol. They claimed they made a sight adjustment, test fired 15 rds and was right on at 8 yards. There is no sight adjustment to fix being that low. Also the groups are better from the tungsten. The green one is a beauty and works 100% well. I could leave it alone and have a perfectly good home defense pistol. It is not acceptable for IDPA matches though.
You have still not swapped parts around? You're not really helping yourself much.

It's not my job to diagnose the problem of a new pistol under warranty. That would be Century Arms. I work 50 hrs a week and it's our slow time now. Then there is my wife, kids and grand kids. I really want to go to range to practice and have fun. But the most irritating thing to me is Century had this pistol and had the opportunity to make it right. So they test fired it at 8 yards. That doesn't show accuracy or groupings at 25 yards. We are talking about a pistol that comes with a "match grade barrel". Anything mass produced can have a problem and I'm ok with that. It's how the manufacturer deals with the problem that matters.
So, just a fact of the day kinda thing.I believe i can safely take a shot at why they didnt go for a 75 foot shot. The average distance of a home defense shooting is 21 feet. (7 yrds) Special forces training RARELY involves 25 yrds. that would be the distance to zero the 5.56, or 30. matter of fact if is 3 yrds. I highly recommend drilling with your pistol on this target. Its an "unofficial duplicate" and printer paper is cheap. Put neon printer page behind it and wa la home made pop targets. Ill see if i can figure out how to load it in a format that you can print and use. And good luck and god bless those who do and maybe this target needs it own thread
