Primary Arms sells Spikes rifles as well if I'm not mistaken.

Only one problem they seem to be currently out of stock on all their complete PSA guns right now . Glad I got mine when I did and got my lower and upper ordered .

hi guys I'm new on here and being from the UK i suppose is a bit rare. i have two spikes tactical rifles the mid length 5.56 and the st22 .22 semi auto spikes.
they are both fantastic guns and the quality is superb I can run any ammo through them with no fails or jams really pretty perfect. i would say get one bought

I hear those ST22s are quite the .22LR rifle. To bad they stopped making them. I was wanting to give one a go.

In my limited experience, Spike's overgasses their systems. I only owned 1, and handled a couple others. They ship them with ST buffers (which weight between H1 and H2 buffers), and work well with underpowered Russian ammo. All the ones I've played with, I've been able to put RRA 9mm Buffers into (heavier than a H3) and they cycled under powered Russian ammo without a hitch.. So yeah, Spike's overgasses their systems. This is good because they will cycle just about everything you feed them. But they will beat up your upper receiver parts and BCG and have more felt recoil.

Just the fact that they already ship with a heavy buffer should tell you something......

yeah it is an awesome piece of kit i do know quite a few guys over here with them and the later models have extraction issues, i think when the bolt quality dropped spikes dropped the st22 which is a shame they should have swapped for the CMMG bolt carrier in my opinion.
i think you can still buy the bits and a separate bolt form another supplier like CMMG tho!

Spikes Tactical or BCM all the way. I have a Spikes ST15 and love it!!! You will not be disappointed, I have the Carbine only because they had no midlengths, I like the carbine but prefer midlengths, get the Spikes!!!! Also they put a lot of work into the aesthetics and it shows, awesome company and customer service with top notch mil-spec AR's comparable to Colt and BCM

I am sure he did, but I am new here and some other new member might be reading old threads cause hey, maybe he is looking for a spikes, or a stag, or colt, what have you. Better late then never I was always told, it may seem that my response it to the OP but its clearly not, never know when others are dealing with the same issue. I know I referred to a lot of "old" threads when I was buying my AR.

Thanks
