    I put another 100 rounds through the PSA/SPIKES Dissipator.

    Everything fed; everything fired; and everything ejected. I only shot out to 50yds, but the bullets went where they were aimed. Twenty-round strings were all one-holers.

    I am extremely happy with the upper assembly PSA sent me. It was more than $100 less than other name-brands, and as far as I can tell, the quality and accuracy is excellent and as good as any other brand I have owned.

    Next trip will incorporate 100 yards, though I can anticipate any problems will be attributed to the shooter and not the rifle.

    They sent out some uppers with the wrong length gas tube. Owned up to it and made it right in an expeditious fashion.

    I just got one of these. Came in the mail yesterday, built it last night and shot it today. Ran perfect.

    I saw the big thread about the carbine tubes. It is a mistake, but they seem to admit it, are fixing the guns, and Q&C. Nothing new really, everyone makes mistakes. (Although that is a dandy).

    Congrats! Great setup from a great outfit.

    I've always loved the Dissipators. My first AR was a Bushmaster Diss. I'm glad high quality companies are actually selling them now. Last one I built, I had to buy a BCM 16" mid upper, chop the FSB, and have ADCO pin a FSB in the rifle position.

    Ted G- I have a question for you. I just built my PSA MOE lower and I'm looking at the Dissipator uppers from PSA. What length system are you using? Carbine or Mid? Is there much of a difference between the two?? Thanks

    Speaking of questions for the OP, I have one, too...

    How's that bayonet lug rail adapter working out? My dad was looking for one, but all the ones I had seen in the past were hit and miss.

    The Dissipator is a mid-length. I'm not sure about the benefits or drawbacks. The rifle has been 100% and I recommend it.

    As for the bayonet adapter.... it's not there any longer. While I liked the concept, another poster noted that the barrel heat wouldn't be good to a plastic housing like the one on my M3 light. The light is now attached to the forearm.

    I would imagine the differences on the Dissy between carbine and mid would be the same as any other rifle - less felt recoil and bolt battering with the middy.

    Before the bayonet lug adapter came off, did you notice any serious slop with it? When I looked at one for my Mossberg 590 some time ago, it seemed most reviews of different ones said there was a lot of play between the lug and adapter.
