is the PSA carrier made entirely of C-158? is the P-TAC made entirely of 8620? or are they in fact both the same and one is "name brand" and the other is "off brand, made on the same line, by the same equipment, with the same materials, to the same specs" ?
Carpenter 158 (C158) is arguably the best material for the bolt. Carrier composition isn't really important, Just about any material that the carrier is made of is gonna be harder than the aluminum of the upper reciever.

If Ptac is vague about what material the acual bolt is, run away. Remember the Bolt is the beating heart of your AR15.

C158 is hard to find and relatively expensive. That's why lots of manufacturers are trying to use different materials.

As if the $1000 PSA/Aimpoint package wasn't good enough...

PSA HF midlength 16", MI handguard, Aimpoint: $1059.99

You will not find a better deal in this price range. This is essentially an $1100 Colt, with an upgrade to midlength gas, a handguard upgrade ($180), an M16 C158 BCG ($50 upgrade), a hammer forged barrel ($50 upgrade), and a $400 red dot optic on top of all that.

If you're in the market for a do-it-all $1000-1400 AR, this is the ticket. And if you want to spend less? Buy it anyway, and sell the optic for $300! This is a $1600 setup anywhere else.

Thanks. Kinda what I figured, but at the same time, in this very thread a few pages back, guys were saying what a deal the P-Tac BCG on PSA's website was. if it's "run away" how can it also be "such a great deal" ?

Nice find! $0.38 per round is by far the best yet.
