    Guess I'll have to post a bunch of pics and range reports when I get it. All I know is they're 100% mil-spec and I think they use PSA lowers with their rollmark.

    Global Arms? I hope that's not true, it better be made in the USA! :D

    Never heard of them either...

    I believe their home base is California.

    I sent the owner an email about 10 minutes ago. Already got a reply. He said he will be getting a new spec sheet with my AR as they have changed (upgraded I assume). I will have post all the info I get in about 2 weeks when it comes in.

    Refreshing the thread. Should have the gun this week. I believe he gets them into the shop in pieces. If so I may end up being the one putting it together. I'll post detailed pics if that's the case.

    Guns came in today. They didn't have buffers. They should be in tomorrow. I'll post pics once I have a functioning rifle.

    from your description it sounds like he is an assembler. im interested to see a parts list of what went into it and a range report!!

    what sight system are you planning on?? irons or optic or rds??

    I'll be starting with irons (carry handle). After I fix the jammed shotgun tomorrow I'll see about putting on my picantinny handguard. I'll be buying flip up sights and an eotech and magnifier. Couldn't believe the guns came in without buffers. Except for the "vietnam repro" 7.62. He offered to let me have that one but I'm already sitting on 5.56. Besides that its too much more money for me to take it. Lol

    I'm curious why you chose this guy when there are so many options out there. Hope all turns out well.

    Because he is just transferring into the civilian market. He makes 100% mil-spec guns for military and law enforcement and the owner was more than fair with me on every transaction. On top of that he hired me on as gunsmith and to run the shop.

    That right there alone was worth it , jobs in general are hard to come by especially in a field that you really like and make a hobby of :)

    Yeah I'm loving it. He's a cool laidback guy. Even if I wasn't working there I'd hangout all day. We have a huge place. If all goes well we are working towards a mini kittery trading post type setup. We have enough room for an indoor archery range. The shooting range went out the window waaay too expensive.

    That's a great reason, at least you know him and have input to what goes in the rifle. At first it sounded different.
