This is the one I am looking at
Pass.

No specs on the BCG. Means they are hiding something.

416 Stainless barrel is 5.56 nato. Tells me they want a very accurate barrel, with loose chambers. Oxymoron. Won't say who made the barrel. Hiding something Pass.

Barrels are more of an art. The barrels most important spec is the maker.

I like how they say TEFLON COATED TO GOV. SPECS. Pass.

I talked to cbs twice over the week-end (they called after I requested thru and e-mail) I spoke with will. He has two other partners, they have been arouund the ar indusrty for quite a few years. They opened a gunshop in oklahoma a couple of years ago and this last spring they started sales on the internet. They are are like most other gunshops as they buy and sell parts, partial kits full kits etc. They do not do any machine work, cnc etc. I went ahead and ordered a 16" Sabre defence chrome lined m4 upper with 1/7 twist m4 barrel with feedramps. There are quite a few sabre uppers on the market since their issue with the Govt. hopefully it is like buying a ford truck (chevy or dodge) trucks are basically the same, only the sevice may be different. I'll keep you udated if you wish.

Default specs on bcg I ordered

[QUOTE=AgentTikki;1373705]Pass.

No specs on the BCG. Means they are hiding something.

Full auto carrier, 8620 tool steel, chrome lined carrier and gas key with black parkerized finish. Bolt 9310 steel, shot peened, black parkerized, mag particle inspected: S7 tool steel injected molded, Gas key bolts: grade 8, properly staked. They are giving me in writing that I can return any parts that I am not satisfied with, without any re-stocking fees. My thoughts are: small shop, low overhead, more personilized service. (competetive pricing?) It is worth a shot (no pun intended). I live along the serrra nevada foothills in central calif.(bummer) and the local gunshops will not give you the time of day unless you want spend 1500-2000 on a registered rifle.So here goes.( or some cheap junk)

I ask again...Who made their barrel? A good chromelined steel barrel is better than a cheap stainless fluted barrel. Stainless steel will not last as long as a t 4150 or 4140 chromelined barrel. If you are looking for teeny tiny groups, then why make a stainless barrel in 5.56 nato? It doesn't make sense. It should be .223 wylde, .223 remington, or 5.56 match (which is super rare) for accuracy/repeatability. If you are looking for sub moa accuracy, get a different barrel. If you are looking for combat/practical type shooting don't get a stainless. If you want a pretty shiny barrel that shoots ok and doesn't last that long, you found the right one for you. Barrel making is more art then the stats. Get a good one from a reputable source, its worth the money.

9310 steel is ok for the bolt. Carpenter 158 is more durable, stronger, expensive(but not much more expensive) and harder to find.

I 'm just trying to help you out, not knocking on your choice. If you feel the need to buy from them it, as always, is your prerogative. You can find cheaper elsewhere, you can find more expensive elsewhere, you can find higher quality from a known reputable source elsewhere. No one here has heard of those guys, you may get awesome kit, you may get ripped off, you may get awesome customer service, you may never get your money back if things go wrong.
