I think PSA is doing good things. They are always in the running when deciding on a new upper and are the place I go to for most other parts.
I still wonder why other assemblers/manufacturers dont follow BCMs lead and hand out their ARs to people as class loaners. Kinda like DPMS refusing to be part of the Chart. It makes me wonder why considering the return thats possible from a good outing.
I'll be blunt, people are lazy and cheap. The majority of people will not take the time or spend the extra money to purchase the tools needed to torque and stake the castle nut nor will they purchase the proper punches or mallet. They will hold the pins w/ needle nose pliers and whack away w/ a metal hammer. They will hand tighten the castle nut and call it a day until their castle nut starts backing of at a class
. Hell look at the posts here. People wont even take the time to spell check let alone reread their posts to make sure they dont sound retarded.
PSA does sell complete lowers last time I checked. These lowers seem to be GTG on paper. They say they are properly torqued and staked.
I think you're combining two totally different conversations. There's one going on about PSA being a better choice than BCM and the one we are dealing w/, assembling your own lower.
Ill second the psa not being junk. They used to be a little iffy in the beginning but quickly fixed that and have been improving greatly every year. Lots of good ar stuff out there. It makes trying to figure all the ins and outs harder which is why this subforum gets a lot of traffic. More so than any other subforum of late.
Just because someone say brand x is the bee's knee's does NOT mean brand y is total crap.
