Maybe for $500. Oly is bottom barrel.

Look at DPMS panther or oracle... Stay away from Olympic.

I'd say the same about DPMS.

For $800 PSA and Spikes offer a better option.

I shot only one. I sighted it in at 30 yards and had the windage adjustment maxed out. I wasn't impressed.

Depends on when it was made. From my understanding, the QC at OLY took a dive from about 98-2008, then they started tightening up. I would save a couple hundred more and go for a tier 1 gun.

Thanks I think I will save a while longer.

Going to bite the bullet and do a build with the help of a buddy any suggestions on a bare lower?

Quentin 03-24-2012 02:27 AM

For lowers you can shop for price or kick in a little more for a rollmark you like. I'd skip the polymer lowers though.

picked up a stag arms stripped lower today I guess the obsession begins.
