    So I have found a place that can get me essentially what I am looking for (300 blk 16 inch quad rail upper) in a reasonable amount of time for a reasonable amount of money. According to the nice knowledgable sales lady about 530 bucks for a complete upper and all I will need to do to complete what I want is a milspec lower and vert foregrip and of course optic. I am looking for the catch here, I cant find anything overly wrong but I am a newb at this so still a bit concerned. 1. anyone have experience with them? 2. Any obvious signs I should be seeing here? 3. Any alternatives that will get me a complete rifle for a grand or less that is quality?

    Also, assuming this is good to go, 1. on a 16 inch barrel, carbine or rifle length quad rail? I like the idea of as much length as possible for sight radius with BU irons and more overall flexibility. 2, should I look at having them ship the barrel without the brake on it and get a comp for it myself? 3, Where would be the best place to look for a lower, Need adjustable stock, nice trigger etc

    Thank you o wise men of GT.

    The catch is that I've never heard of "Sotaarms," and I'd bet most other folks haven't either.

    Never heard of them.

    To answer your second question, I like long rails.

    About the best info I have found is 1 guy over on 300blktalk.com says he got his upper there and has worked well. I am still trying to find alternatives but i'm finding squat.

    This would be what we call "A Clue.". Unknown companies can be a great deal, or a massive pain in the ass. I'm not a fan of risking that much money.

    well at least I can say that unlike several companies at least there is nothing blatantly horrible that is out there. My thoughts are, worst case use a CC I know will give me my money back if they do not ship.

    Well that's not a very good way of looking at a firearm purchase IMO. Besides, if they do ship and you get a dud product, there's no refund (unless the company admits they've made a bad product and return your money). I'd sign up for every email notification for every site that has 300blk products as I could. You'll get the email saying something is in stock before you know it. Patience truly is a virtue in today's AR market:wavey:
