    I sure wish they would re-up their pistol uppers. They were such a deal at $99 after code

    This is the first Upper I’ve seen from them that has a melonite finish. That was my only gripe with their barrels before, I just prefer chrome or melonite vs phosphate. So maybe the others being OOS is a sign that they’re going to all melonite now?
    I already can’t fit another AR in my safe so it doesn’t really matter haha

    I have a 7.5in upper that I put a WMD bcg in and it has worked flawlessly, phosphate barrel notwithstanding.

    Their stainless Valkyie upper is the same price as this one, and is VERY tempting if you were looking to get into this "boutique" cartridge affordably @11B CIB

    Gun prices (esp ARs) and commodities metal prices are in the toilet; they also use chinese made-rails, and CNC equipment isn't cutting edge tech anymore. IIRC it's one or 2 guys in the garage of a sporting good store cranking these out in Michigan. Very similar to how PSA started.

    Don’t worry they’ll be back. Sign up for their emails and they’ll likely do a sale when they come back in stock. They don’t over do the emails.

    I have a couple of their Glock barrels and two of the 5.56 BCGs. They are GTG.

    Mine came in yesterday. Looks pretty good. Ordered this one to put a rifle together for my son. What current manufacturer’s finish would match up well with this? Aero, Anderson etc.... Where is the best place to buy either stripped or complete? Thinking about buying a few more to build for my daughters.

    mine (7.5 pistol with phosphate barrel) matches the finish perfectly to an Anderson stripped lower.

    That's good to know that some of you guys have bought this stuff. I want the 300 blackout upper and pistol parts kit. How do you sign up for email in stock alerts? Hopefully it comes in before the sale ends what a deal.

    This is from the Gun.Deals comments section on this deal. Mike is the owner/operator of CA:

    Yes we are, there has been a large spike in Wholesale orders i was told from our machine shop manager, once those are filled there could be inventory for online. We only sell OEM Production over runs online that's why inventory is In&Out some times."

    That being said, I ordered a 16" assembled upper this morning, and 30 minutes later I had a shipping notice with tracking number from UPS. PSA can learn a thing or 2 from Mike @ Combat Armory

    It's too bad they don't let you backorder. I hope they restock the 300 bo kit soon.

    just buy the pistol kit and replace the barrel with a BA and resell the 5.56 barrel for $50 on Arfcom or ebay. You'll still have less than $200 in it even if you put a BA Hanson pistol barrel on it ;)

    Only reason I haven't done something like this is Black Friday is around the corner.

    I seriously doubt you'll find a better price on any upper, at least one that's not made out of a piece of conduit pipe and PVC plastic on BF

    That’s EXACTLY what I did for my latest .300BLK. 8” BA barrel.

    Edit: n/m that was the 10.5” 5.56 that I did. BA barrel as well.
