I've never been impressed with their specs or prices once you add it all up.

Mod 1 a toss up in my opinion. Not the best choice that is all I will say!

I really feel for you guy's that ordered uppers from Model 1. I have bought/used several of their uppers over the years.
I went to the Original Ft.Worth gun show this past sunday,and as usual,Model 1 had about 10 table's of their stuff there. I'd bet they had 50-75 complete uppers setting on their uppers stand waiting to be sold on the spot.

I don't understand why they are taking so long to deliver stuff to you guy's. They are at almost every DFW gun show,and have plenty of complete uppers and every other AR part in stock/for sale on their tables.

Bought a few things from them. Got traingle hand guards from them (how can you screw up handguards), and got a SP1 clone stripped upper. The upper had problems mating with milspec sight assembly, so I had to do some filing. Also didn't have a cutout for the auto sear, not that I needed it, but the authenticity was what I was looking for at the time. Just thought I would give my .02.
