Default Palmetto State Armory

Is there a bad thing to be said about them? I'm looking into building my first ar15 this spring and it looks like palmetto state is a good route to take. Especially considering I'm on a bit of a budget. Who out there has some experience with them?

look at the AR forums (sub group of General Rifle discussion). There are a number of members who swear by PSA for build projects

I have purchased various parts from them. I assembled an AR using all PSA stuff, it fit properly and goes bang when I pull the trigger.

The PSA premium light weight, mid-length upper is a very nice piece of hardware.

Heard very good things about PSA. If you're on their Email watch for certain parts, you can run into very good bargains.

I think I'll have to sign up for email with them soon. I watched a torture test video on a psa ar15 that was impressive.

The only grip i have about them is that they sometime take a little too long to build and ship stuff out.

Most times if your order is in stock they only take a few days to ship it out, sometime more if its really busy. If you order an upper they can take a few weeks to ship.

^^^this. Ordered a LPK on the 16th. Said it was in sock. Just got email today saying it is packed waiting on pick up by UPS. A little slow but quality products at good prices. Well worth the wait.

I've also had good luck with PSA, I have one of their midlength uppers, BCG and LBKs. All have been good but as Tikki said, they can be slow filling orders.

I'd stay away from their PTAC line, it appears to be lower quality.

Another recommendation for PSA, I use their parts in all my builds but as stated before, don't expect then to get in a hurry. In my opinion the wait is well worth the price and quality level that you get though.

I was thinking the same thing looking at the pics on their site.
