I'm not saying that they haven't F'd some stuff up along the way, but my personal experience with them has been great. I ordered 2 uppers from them last summer, they came in a timely fashion and were built correctly. I've ordered a lot of small parts, every order was complete. I've ordered ammo many times. I know that when I order from them, they aren't "speedy delivery" but I've gotten everything in the time frame they quoted.

Overall, I'm happy with dealing with PSA. Heck that deal they just ran for the M4 carbine with the AimPoint PRO for a grand, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend that package to anyone looking for a carbine.

Out of all of mine, this PSA is what stays out at the ready.

I've had about the same experience, only one upper for me. I ordered a Strikefire on the 4th of July and got it 5 days later and a PRO on the 5th and it came the day after the Strikefire.

They did ship when promised and it arrived on time as promised, so no complaints there.

Now I am looking to buy more stuff... oh boy... the accountant won't be happy about this....

I've been waiting for them to put their 10.5" upper back with a quad rail and when I got that email, I snatched one up.

Got it put together so my Form 1 build is complete.

Must be nice to be able to use that upper as a SBR because we don't get to do that in CA. No CLEO will sign off on it and the state law prohibits it anyway.

I couldn't get the chief of the city I lived in to sign off (never mind the fact that I already had full-auto SBR'd weapons from my department at the house) and the county sheriff I knew retired before I even thought about an SBR.

I went the trust route. It worked for the SBR and I've got three suppressors and another SBR waiting for tax stamp.

I wish all states would allow it. I have to plan my retirement state to a state that allows SBRs and Suppressors.

But so far this PSA 10.5" upper using a PSA full auto BCG works great. I slapped it on one of our full auto lowers at work and it works great too.

I'm not sure from what experience you're speaking from, but it hasn't been my experience. Are they BCM? No, but they make a fine rifle for a good price.

I had a pretty standard PSA experience. I ordered their mid-length PRO package and the rifle has run great after several thousand rounds. Their customer communication was terrible. Don't expect anyone them to return a call or email if you have a question about your order. thankfully I didn't need to return anything. the only way I was actually able to make contact with PSA was through a forum section on AR15.com which is ridiculous in my opinion. I hear they are trying to increase their staff to address that but I'm not sure if they've made any progress.

Great rifle though.

Other than a upper that I ordered from them that took forever to show up (just as they said it would every order I have made from them has been fast and correct, and so far the competed gun has been flawless

I've ordered an upper and lower from them. Both were received within the stated the frame. The fit and finish on both pieces was right on spec. Turned into a great rifle.

My friends PSA rifle kit finally showed up today and it was beautiful. Except it had someone else's name and address on the invoice and was the wrong item completely. Instead of a barreled carbine upper he ended up with a SBR and a decent rail. Looks like their shipping issues haven't gotten any better. I love my PSA rifle but their warehouse is run by a bunch of monkeys.

My str lower build kit I ordered Tuesday shipped today.that's record speed for PSA hopefully this is a sign


I also snagged one of their daily deal uppers today. 400$ for a FN barreld upper with a Midwest gen 2 12" rail was a steal.don't know what I'm going to do with it I already have another stripped upper and lower lol

I got their 10.5" upper with the YHM diamond rails and they described the barrel as the FN machine gun steel which is the same as the ones used by the military for the FN249/240 but I am not sure it is made by FN per se. Sounded like it was the same type of steel only.

I don't think PSA would take a chance and lie about who's making there barrels. They have been saying FN is making there barrels for a long time now. I'm pretty sure if this was a lie PSA would of been called out by now. Both company's are located in SC.

I've used several PSA barrels and they were all stamped FN on the barrel. FWIW They also have all show exceptionally good accuracy--even my pencil profile barrels!

FWIW, PSA has a deal on a Lower Parts Kit right now $199 which includes a Giessela SSA trigger kit instead of a standard GI trigger.

That trigger alone retails for $199!
