Similar situation here... I built a PSA AR and mildly tricked it out. I've a colt too, and the PSA is a great shooter, looks great, fits great and PSA has great customer svc. Highly recommended. PS - $1100 gets you the rifle, pop-up BUIS, co-witnessed EoTech 556 and every Magpul toy I could bolt on (bad, maid, fore-end and rails, Angled fore-end, grip, eye poker outer and a bayonet.

I should also point out that I thunk the PlumCrazy is a bad-assed bargain. I'm curious about weight compared to forged aluminum. I'm wanting to build an ultralight AR. thoughts?

I'd like to see it be put to the test as those lowers have not fared well in the past.

I was hard pressed to find any negative reviews of them.

I guess it just depends on where you look and who you ask.

Well I hope it works out, Scott and we all know our Billt screams "parts is parts". But no one can deny PlumCrazy is a gamble. As we discussed above though it's not a big gamble at $120 as you could drop a 22lr upper on it if you see excessive wear from 5.56.

Very curious to hear your thoughts on it as you get some rounds down range.

I'll let you know if I wind up with a four piece receiver.

And of course extent of use will play a role.

I do like your first sig line.

Let's hope that doesn't happen!

Though there are pics floating around of Vulcan and Carbon-15 composite lowers in pieces. You most def don't want to mortar the durn thing!

Hell for the money I think if it does give up the ghost you got $100 in stock , buffer, spring, LPK and grip to swap over and you already got your $129 out of it in pieces parts if you lok at it that way
