    I am a fan of Rock River Arms and Daniel Defense. You will pay more for them but it is worth the money.

    The guy who wrote it up missed on a couple tiny details, but overall he's pretty spot on.

    So I will have to say that PSA (Palmetto State Armory) consistently has blemished lowers for cheap as I have seen in a long time if you are looking to start a build.

    I was skeptical when I heard blemished but after seeing quite a few myself I now know that they are blemished in the sense that the finish may not be up to PSA standards, etc. So if you are building and don't really give a rats ass about if there is a small scratch, etc then they are the cheapest (with good quality) way to start

    I envy you guys that live in firearms "friendly" states. I live in Nazi occupied CA and do own an AR, but with "bullet button" and 10 round magazine limit. So if 11 guys are attacking me I better be a great shot and have one of my pistols handy.

    move to a state that respects/protects your inherent rights.....rather than limiting or removing them

    It's a shame they won't ship lowers to my state.

    I'm gonna grab another lower and want to build a nice one this go around. Guy at work mentioned umbrella corp. However it seems like they don't make lowers anymore. Noone has them in stock anywhere. Anyone know what's up?

    I have a bump stock for it that makes it go full auto. Burns the 50 rounds in about 2 seconds, and the barrel glows at the end! Awesome! I'll try to do a video clip next time I shoot with it.

    ...letting it get that hot, i'd imagine that is causing severe barrel/rifling wear... chrome-lined may help some, but that's got to hard on it...

    I have 3 barrels 1 thrasher, 1 carry, and 1S/S target barrel that I almost never use cuz I'm too lazy to change it when I go to the range. Also when I have used the bump stock I shoot un jacketed cuz I have a lot of them and they kinda act as lube. Drawback is its a bear getting the lead residue out of the barrel.

    What is the general consensus on Rock River AR's? I purchased one a while ago(Operator Elite) and have been having fun with it at the range. I'm thinking of getting another upper for it so I have it once this one is shot out. Any thoughts? This would be for a range rifle(out to 250m).

    Cheers, James

    I don't have any personal experience with RRA but I've heard good things.
    Shot out? How many rounds do you put down range a year?

    If you have the itch build something you could build a new upper with a 18"-20" barrel with 1-7 or 1-8 twist, melonited barrel (Not chrome lined) and a 223 Wylde chamber. Find the right ammo for it and it'll be plenty accurate out to 250M.
