not sure but think there is a really good chance several uber-active members here are on the PSA payroll lol. I have to say the psa site is laid out really well and it looks like they have some great prices.

Try ar15.com there seems to be much broader range of expertise (as in, more experienced commenters) and brand recommendations

Here is mine. Just add a Magpul BUIS and an Eotech 512. $699+tax. Great rifle for the money. Click on technical specs in link to see what you get. And its already put together and ready to shoot. So far Im getting sub-moa accuracy and haven't had a single malfunction with well over 500rds thru it.

I had a similar problem , I have a built trigger that is on a bench shooter , very light and the perfect bench trigger . However it will not fire the 7.62x39 round to save its ass . That's too bad because I try to sight in all my uppers on this lower because its so much more accurate with the light trigger . Had to go back to the mil spec built lower to get it to fire reliable . I also have one mag thats giving me fits and drives the bullet into the feed ramp and jams . I need to get on the feed lips with a set of needle nose and bend it slightly up . The rest of the mags work perfectly like they are supposed to . All in all im glad I got it bought but it far less reliable than my AK . Im not saying its no reliable but I have never had a jam or malfunction in the AK . in the AR 7.62 I have had maybe a dozen in 400 rounds mostly due to the one particular magazine issue . Its pretty accurate , well until it beat my new scope to death . I have went to a 4.5 oz buffer to help stop some of that brutal recoil that it had with a carbine buffer
