The breakdown is in the repair/return time because there isn’t enough armorers in house to get the process done, so there are rifles coming out of the field and none getting returned. It should be done in batches with fixed rifles being swapped one for one, but unfortunately that isn’t what is happening. Blaine will be inspected sometime in January if what I was told is correct.
