One of the issues that would come up on forums involved the entire barrel extension coming loose when trying to remove muzzle devices.

Other things I can recall reading/seeing photos of involved gas keys not being staked properly (or not staked at all), extractors breaking, and sometimes the bolt itself breaking. Like I said, maybe they’ve sorted such issues out. I can’t find any info on their site pertaining to what they’re bolts are made.

Considering the times we're in right now, people "in the know" need to differentiate between those levels, be it for rifles, handguns etc. Like I said, I'm not looking for an Ed Brown or Nighthawk version of the AR. Totally fine with an Armscor or Tisas level... meets spec, runs.


B-I-N-G-O!

Ok, thanks. Fwiw, not planning on removing or messing with the flash hider.

I'll watch for that. One of the more recent reviews (2019, I think) seems to say that they previously farmed out the BCG's, now they're making them in-house.

Waiting on mine. How long did it take, basically a month?

Yay! Got my notice today (7/30), label created. Ordered 7/20.

Reasonably soon, now.

re: $499 AR 15 at Primary Arms right now
I am super pleased with this purchase. Haven't shot it yet but it's a damn fine gun for the budget. Just finished adding my initial accessories to it.

Sig Romeo MSR Red Dot.

Palmetto State Armory 3.5lb flat-faced match-grade trigger.

FAB Defense back-up sights - which co-witness thru the Romeo perfectly! The built-in caps on the Romeo have clear lenses so you don't have to flip them up in order to co-witness.

It DID come with a mag, although a rep I called at Primary Arms said it wouldn't. It's a painted aluminum mag. I purchased some Pmags though and that's what's in the pic.

I bought the same rifle and Sig Romeo right around June 24/25, I think it took 13 days to come in

Palmetto State Armory still has completed rifles; that's actually where I got mine, I didn't look close enough at the gun in the post I quoted, looks like he just got a trigger there

CootKilla's post goes to a rifle in stock, for $525. That's actually the one I now have coming in, as I didn't grab one of the $499 rifles (I DID get one for $475 from another store).

LINK

I ran into a hassle trying to order this from Primary, as I detailed above. What I had to do (and what you might need to, also)-

set up an account.
put the gun on your wishlist.
look at your wishlist.
move gun from wishlist to cart.
check out.

I was surprised when I went to my local to get ammo and he had 6 lowers hanging up.

re: $499 AR 15 at Primary Arms right now
Filled out my 4473 today, got delayed. Doesn't surprise me, I get delayed about half the time, during normal times. I figure the current situation is a giant clusterfrick right now.

At least I have it going to a place that honors the 3 business day deadline. I'm off Friday, will pick it up then.
