I don't own but one thing for sure their lead time is terrible. Some said well worth of waiting.

I own a PSA ar15 carbine. Great rifle in my opinion. It sits next to my Colt and Rock River.

I have one, great rifle... BUT, their lead times ARE terrible and they can't send you the right stuff apparently.

I placed an order on Oct 14th, recieved on Nov 16th sans my trigger guard. Emailed them about it twice, finally got my envelope and it was full of magpul stickers, no trigger guard. I'm pretty well fed up with their incompetence at this point, yeah its a $9 part but its the principal of it.

It shouldn't be a chore to get something that you order, I am very satisfied with their product, but their service keeps me from recommending them.

I have several of their rifles and they have been great , no issues with any of them, The wait times arent great but at least they have stuff in stock . Alot of places are out of stock and not even taking orders until they get caught up . PSA just keeps cranking stuff out . I have only had one issue with a order and I had my parts in 3 days after a quick email . 6300+ rounds thru one rifle without one single failure . Thats good enough for me to say its the first gun thats going with me in a SHTF situation . Part of the reason it takes them as long as it does is they are built to order they dont just stock uppers on the shelves . I would order from them again without any worries . This is a company that if they continue to keep going like they are and continue with the great customer service I have had , they will be at the top with all the big names and Im more than sure their prices will follow

Wait times should be no surprise to anyone. Every company that's making a decent product is backed up. PSA makes good stuff. I have their lower on one of my rifles and it's worth the money.

rant on (SCREW PSA) rant off. Good rifles crappy customer service IMO, YMMV.

I have barreled upper receivers from BCM, Daniel Defense and PSA. The first two have long been considered top tier along with Colt. Deservedly so.

Comparing the uppers I can find no fault with PSA. They do things right and belong right up there with the big boys. A heck of a deal these days and purehavoc likely is right that as the word gets out about PSA prices will go up.

I thought about getting the PSA AR with the scope. It seems like a good deal. Just waiting on some more feedback from people who already own one. PSA seems like a great deal. But when I buy a gun I want quality. Because I plan to have my guns forever! So I dont mind spending the extra $300 on a Colt and Bushmaster thats proven great. However im looking in to PSAs. I really like both of their ARs. And if you have a few goodies you want on the AR they will put them on if you purchase from the store
