PSA does this sometimes. Must be crazy there.

I ordered a receiver extension kit from them and only got the tube and castle nut. They forgot the buffer, spring and end plate. Took a few calls and emails to finally get it straightened out but I know these things happen. It's just that it kills you when your build is on hold because of missing parts!

The way things are going for PSA they will be one of many highly rated AR companies and up there in the top brands so long as they keep their customers happy and keep providing great products

I received my buffer from PSA this weekend and my bcg from BCM came today. All that's left is my upper which is out of stock and a gunfighter charging handle! O and optics. Anyone used irons on a 45? Im thinking of going this way since im putting a scope on it

My last build also has a BCM BCG contacting a PSA buffer. Most of the rifle is PSA (upper and receiver extension kit).

Hope you get your upper and GF soon!

Primary Arms did have the Gun Fighter on sale days ago, not sure if still on. It was about $38 shipped.

Thanks, OK! Good deal for $38. I'm half tempted to get one for the above mentioned PSA build, I have Mod4s for my DD and BCM builds.
