My ratchet handle for removing the barrel broke while I was trying to remove the barrel. Kinda pissed but figured it would happen sooner or later the way that it is designed. I need to ship my ACR back for the recall anyway as I am sure they will fix it but I am a bit concerned about the timeline with the plant closing. Should I wait a while to send it in or do you think they will get it knocked out before the move?
Its an issue with some of them. My dealer broke one in his shop showing it to somebody. Bushmaster sent one to him quick.

Recall. I can't imagine they'd repair the handle (most likely just replace it).
Then again, you can always wait til the relocation is complete.
I remember reading about somebody else having their barrel handle break. They were told that there was apparently a bad batch of heat treated handles.
