    Wow, Palmetto has got to be putting a huge dent on a lot of companies sales. They're putting out a lot of really nice, basic deals right now.

    Way to go Palmetto, another great buy. How do the BCM guys possibly talk themselves into the long waits and more money? With PSA's 4150 line and the 20" FN uppers people cannot possibly argue better quality. Palmetto state armory rocks.

    I think what a lot of people prefer from BCM is that they can get their preferred handguards, complete rifle, etc. all put together at a good price while Pamletto I think only has Magpul, Midwest, DD, and Troy.

    Of course, this is coming from someone who wouldn't wait for a BCM.

    With those features and at that price point.... no one can compete with a deal like that. Not that I know of anyway? I'd buy it.

    My only complaint would be that its a carbine and not a mid-length.

    I was wondering the same thing.

    Since PSA states that each carbine is made-to-order, and their different uppers are similarly priced, I'll bet you could substitute a middy for a nominal price.

    A phone call could answer that question.

    Look, I can appreciate that they are a growing company putting out products that meet the military specifications and that every company has mistakes...but they are by no means a proven brand yet. If Suzuki was putting out an engine that met the exact same specs as a Corvette engine, would you then claim the Suzuki is a better buy?

    They might have all the pieces to make a great weapon, but they haven't exactly got assembling them and quality control down pat yet. Until they figure some of the following issues out, I will wait for my Corvette engine.

    i almost ordered the patrol rifle with optic deal for $999, but ended up just getting a kit because i wanted midlength. i asked two weeks ago if they were going to offer it in midlength version and got no answer, i called to order and they said they didnt plan on it yet, so i just ordered my kit. will decide on what optic i want later.

    i am hoping mine gets here at the end of the week.

    Colt has produced hundreds of thousands of AR15s.

    I've ordered 6 so far and they have functioned great. All have been kits that I put together though.

    The one bad experience with them was the wrong upper being sent once and it took a while to get a hold of someone to get the issue corrected. Reaching a real person has been hit and miss for me on stuff, sometimes I can reach someone on my first or second try and other times it can take a couple of days to reach someone.

    Serious quality problems indeed. I cannot even begin to rationalize why people when they see a company start to offer their own brand of rifles (or uppers) with no proven track record, start a "cult" following justifying the new company's products over top tier providers such as Colt, BCM, Daniel Defense, etc. There is a reason the PSA's are lesser in cost and the photo's above prove why. Anyone who thinks PSA's are in the same league as BCM or other top tier manufacturers certainly doesn't have a clue about AR-15s.

    I'll wait for the BCM I do not foresee PSA producing half the quality rifle of BCM. Well worth the wait and money in my eyes.

    Careful guys...the buyers of PSA (Spikes 2.0) are very defensive of the couple hundred bucks they saved.

    Prepare to be labeled a BCM/DD/Colt/Noveske fan-boys, keyboard commando, cubicle commando, etc.

    They will also accuse you of not being a serious shooter and one that only buys what others tell them to buy.

    Whole lot of butt-hurt in the PSA circle...

    But hey, fit and finish are perfect and it's been flawless for 200 rnds!

    At that price I would consider buying a black rifle toy, but I don&#8217;t think they ship hear. Also not shore the 10 round magazines are worth it. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>
