We all know you own a Ruger and a SR556 at that. We all realize you are overly defensive of said rifle.

Good CS is good CS. There really aren't any gray areas.

Agreed!! Im still amazed they footed the whole cost of shipping. Its not cheap to mail a firearm legally. Ive had to send others back and forth some companies i was responsible for costs most others it was split 50-50.

I would have been ok with covering the costs but bravo covered the shipping to and from. Top it off with sameday techs looking at it for diagnoses... above and beyound.

I havent yet sent my leupold vx7 scope in for service even though i have their premier service since i need to pay shipping costs. Its got a bit of debrise inside the objective that my 458winmag knocked loose. Its not a huge costs but i dont shoot with that scope a lot so i been putting it off.

Customer service levels are a big deal to me since i tend to have problems with products. Dont even get me started on ati CS...

When i pick up the bcm and then my wife's dpms the difference in material quality is glaringly obvious just at feel and look. Its like two entirely different types of rifles rather than both being ar15

I bet it was easy for BCM to look at it the same day. I doubt they get many back on their bench for repairs.

Well, I have numerous Rugers circa 1980 and many circa 2011-12 and I disagree with you.

As Pogo said: "Things 'ain't the way they used to be. And they never wuz...."

I rest my case.

redleg, I happen to be in quite a comfortable place in life. I am fortunate enough to only have to put in about 10-15 actual hours a week in the office while finishing up a degree in criminal justice. I'm also fortunate enough to come from a long line of intelligent people ( dr, nurses, chemical engineer, radiologist, future attorney, business owners, and military). I rarely if ever crack a book yet carry a 3.75. I also don't sleep but a couple hours a night. I have a lot of free time. Not only that but I always have my RAZR on me. Tech is awesome .

If I have relayed bad information in past posts please bring it to my attention. Thank you.

Edit: It's not just the amount of rounds down range. The manner in which you send those rounds down range is important if not more important.

So I have been browsing and have found another question regarding BCM. They are selling blemed complete lowers with no stock for $280, I realize now after looking I can buy a DSA stripped lower for $70 and build one much cheaper...is it worth the extra cash to go with a BCM lower? I am not going competition, will be using as fun target shooting and SHTF/home defense.

The BCM blem lower is a bargain. The receiver, receiver extension and LPK are top notch yet it costs about the same as as a low end build. All reports I've seen, the scratch is minor.

The upper is the most important half. The lower is mainly who's markings you want on the side. With the exception of polymer type lowers.

The reason i bought a bcm lower is they were readily available with milspec parts.
