Well, just ordered a stripped upper from psa. I took a chance and got one of their blemished stripped uppers. Hopefully the reviews I read are correct and its not to bad. Also picked up a set of take down pin springs and forward assist assembly. They were out of dust cover assemblies, so that'll be my next order. It was also free shipping, which is great.

You will not be disappointed with PSA's components.

Yelp my upper came in today. Can't see any reason for them to call it a blemished receiver. Now... idk wat part I wanna order next. Lol

Looks like you need to get that barrel and guard next.

PSA sells barrels. Get a mid length on the gas system. Mid length is smoooooooooth on the recoil.
