Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

The deals that PSA has been running on lowers is crazy. I’ve been stacking . Been catching Anderson uppers from $29.99-$34.99 and LPK for $35.
BTW if you guys like the 2 stage Larue MBT-2S they are $80 right now from Larue. Just got my 4th in the mail today. They are awesome triggers.

Picked up the lower earlier and I’m not sure I could be happier with the way it turned out.

I can't figure out the "hate" for psa in some forums. Only thing I can figure is the "my rifle was $1500 so it's better than yours" crowd are just panty hurt. I've bought 4 in the last month or so and they are spot on. For the money I would rather have 3 psa's than another colt. Oh, and the Larue triggers are awesome, put one in the .308 and decided I need a bunch more. Nows the time to be buying.

Folks who pay too much for their stuff always look down on those who don't.

Not saying you can't buy quality with more money, but knowing what we know now days about AR15 receivers, that there are only a few manufacturers and all the big names have to use them as well, there is no reason to drop big $$ just for a name.

Now, there is a difference in component parts. That's where the "get what you pay for" can come in, but not always. Remember, "Milspec" is the minimum standard for parts. It is not a guarantee of quality.

That said, my most expensive AR is a Stag Arms that I paid $650 for the day before Obongo got elected the first time. That's the only factory AR-15 I purchased. My AR's are plinkers. I go with the M-14 or FAL for serious social work.

There are a lot of those "The most expensive is the best," people out there. Was at a show at The Cuyahoga County fairgrounds, One of my Buds, Mark is set up beside me. He had mostly FNFALs for sale with receivers and kits by/from various suppliers/mfrs. Marks rifles were a bit higher in price than my mostly identical FNFALs. Between us we had most of the FNFALs that were at the show. Mark had different connections than I did in the industry and we often traded parts and kits around.

A dweeb walks up and starts finger fucking Marks inventory. He spent about a half hour there....and then walks over to my tables. He asked me why my FNFALs were a bit lower priced than Marks were. I told him that prices on those rifles were dependent on many factors. like WHEN you purchased the parts kits, from who, what quantity, etc. Mark is listening taking it all in...we were trading glances. The dweeb goes back and is talking to Mark...pretty much the same things I said...Mark is telling him.

The dweeb decides that a higher price means a better quality. I'm serious. All on his own. Mark and I laughed and laughed about it. Both of us were mostly selling out on FALs and were the destination for FAL buyers...So who sold when/what etc...didn't much matter.

Ahhhh...the good old days...

I have gotten AR receivers from a supplier that were so out of spec...that I had to greatly modify the lower receiver parts to get them to function. Time is $$$$. They functioned just fine after welding and grinding on a few parts but ...THAT is a pain the ass. I like shit to fit. This mass produced AR15, CNC stuff should always be dead nuts on. After all....all you do is just assemble an AR. AK's on the other hand.... require some skills and TOOLS.
