Although in my shop Olympic Arms is toward the bottom (in price) it isn't because they don't offer more expensive products. I have sold many Oly Arms guns without any complaints. I would caution anyone from paying in advance to have oly arms custom make anything. I guarantee it will take them this side of forever to get it done. I just stick with the standard stuff with them.

BTW 1bigtarge, at that price you can't go wrong, Olympic has a great warranty.

How in the world did you get $500.00 in a Rock River Lower when retail with the National Match 2 Stage Trigger is $380-$390. Unless you added some aftermarket stock pistol grip or etc.

Understand that you can get a ton of money tied up in the extras!

Oly's are great giuns and the price is where more people can afford them, yes you will send them in for warranty work but then again its lifetime so nothing to worry about. I found one forum that is for Oly's you can find it by going to Ol's home page I believe or just do a search. What kills me about some of the haters on other forums Oly is one of the oldest out there making the AR and they makt all of thier own stuff they dont buy from someone and then put it together. You will enjoy it so dont worry about it, it might not be the best but then who says what is best?
