Default What would you recommend Psa or bcm upper?

Hey everyone what would you recommend Psa upper or Bcm? Psa is cheaper but I am willing to pay more to get
More if the bcm is a better buy.

Kinda rude of me but I recently joined I've been on these forums though reading educating myself. My name is Tyson and I am ready for the second ar and I wanted guidance on which upper to purchase.

I just put together a BCM and you absolutely can't go wrong with them. I have also heard great things about PSA but I would have to give BCM the advantage on this one. Great product and great customer service.

I'd say BCM out of the two. I'm currently planning my next build and plan to go with a complete BCM upper if I can do so.

I haven't really done any bench rest shooting. I went with a light weight close range type rifle. The furthest I have shot was 50 yards standing up. I have read of other BCM uppers with really good accuracy. Someone will probably be able to post more info about accuracy later on. I wanted a rifle that would eat any ammo I could stuff in it and so far it has done that perfectly.

Of the two, definitely BCM. PSA would be ok if on a tight budget.

My BCM 16" lw bfh is capable of 1 moa at 100 yds as long as I do my part. I have no regrets with my BCM

For a build on a budget, PSA has a good albeit relatively new reputation for value priced, quality products. Their stuff hs all the right specs for great prices. I honestly think that they are going to be raising their prices again soon.

BCM has one of the greatest reps in the industry for quality products. You can't go wrong.

For a light use plinker/range rifle Id go with PSA.

For heavy use/home defence role I'd go with BCM.
