Never heard of them. Googlefu brings up nothing.

What kind of upper are you looking to buy?

How about telling us what you see in them?

To be honest, I just skimmed over their stuff and was not impressed, certainly not enough to become their guinea pig. I'd go with something else. PSA is a great choice for quality parts on a budget.

Well I'd look hard at other brands. Be sure you're not settling for less.
