    It's public info. For those that care (not the regulars here) can easily varify the info to see its correct.

    Most of them buy their parts from the same suppliers including Colt and BCM...

    I've got a PSA M4 that runs slick as a whistle. One thing they do that most manufacturers do not, is to replace (without question) parts that the customer screwed up. They did that for me, while I waited in the store. So in my opinion, the customer service is superior.

    They have sold ammo at "just above" pre-panic prices routinely. I make it a habit to plan my trips into Columbia around opening time at PSA, so I can grab some ammo at reasonable prices.

    I certainly wouldn't toss them out on their ear just because they sold some BCG's from another manufacturer, which turned out to be out-of-spec. If we abandoned every company that made a business error, who would we be buying from?

    The misleading lies were the thing that turned me off. Do some research.
    Damned if I will send my hard earned dollars to a company that denies
    the materials of their products, then eventually claims that the parts are from a vendor.

    Be a man, take ownership of the eF up and own up to it! They did not do that.

    Wrong, try again. The difference between BCM and PSA, is BCM cares about their customers and takes the time to put together their uppers correctly and ships them out promptly.

    PSA may use quality parts, but they do not have the anywhere near same level of quality control and customer service as BCM does.

    Ding!

    Quality control makes a whole heap of difference. It's like saying that a bubba-built AR is just as good as a Noveske because Bubba used a Noveske barrel. It might be true, but it's highly unlikely.

    +1. Problem is many people want a "high quality" AR but don't care if it actually is a POS--as long as it looks cool and has some big name brands on it.

    The trick is knowing what brands produce quality, and who produces junk. PSA still seems to be suffering growing pains. First it was horrible CS, now their quality control seems to be slipping, even though their customer service has improved a little. Even so, they are better than companies like Roggio, DoubleStar, and Hesse/Vulcan.

    Well... I have a mixed experience with PSA. Ordered a lower receiver for $99 and it shipped fast and was perfect. Ordered a couple other normal components (LPK, BAD, etc.) and they arrived great and as expected.

    I ordered a BCG from them in the madness. It was a mess. The gas key was MIM, the staking was HORRIBLE, which appeared attributed to the strength of the base metal and the method used - not sure. Also the cam pin was binding. I promptly returned it on their nickel and received full credit back with no questions asked. So - even though I was unhappy with the product, I am satisfied with how they treated me.

    PSA likes to sell product before they have it or before it is built. This may be what is holding up your upper.
