Re: $399 new AR-15

Wanted to follow up my original post with some range results. I came into 10 Magpul 30rd. Gen 2 magazines from another PSA deal (as well as an additional 'blemished' receiver that isn't at all blemished) and loaded them up with 5.56 55g American Eagle FMJ. No optics and the only changes from my firs...

Re: $399 new AR-15

Interesting, it sounds like PSA probably pulled in parts from a few different manufacturers since neither my bolt or the carrier is marked at all and is chromed. PSA has been selling AR parts like they're going out of style so it makes sense. For $400ish it's hard to beat even if the barrel and bolt...

What's the most common distance incidents involving firearms occurs, like eight feet? Even with a 1:12 twist over three times that distance I can't see stabilization of the r...

Re: $399 new AR-15

Hey there. I just built an AR-15 from PSA for $453 (that's with shipping), so I thought I'd share. Let me start off by saying that I don't like AR-15s. I spent more time than I care to recount with an M16-A1 strapped to me in the military and I tend to prefer older guns (favorite being a Winchester ...
