    Can I ask what the differences are between the Century and the Interarms? Just general quality/fit/finish?

    In addition to what Squid said, some people were hypothesizing that Century was using .223 barrel which caused keyholing. A Tantal should be using a .21 barrel.

    This happened with the first ones. It wasn't an incorrectly sized barrel, it was the wrong twist rate. The problem has been fixed and if you have one that keyholes, Century will fix it for free.

    I don't know what compliance parts have gone up? G2 trigger groups are still under $30, pistons,muzzle attachments, and NODAK receivers haven't gone up yet either :dunno:
