    Has anyone had any dealings with this co.? I'm interested in buying an upper from them, a deal I can't pass up. I don't think I can build an upper cheaper than what they are offering. $500.00 for a match grade 16'' BHW 1-8 twist SS 3 grove polygon barrel, headspaced BCG, squared and bedded bar. to rec.,moe flip up rear site and front flip up site, moe hand guard or yhm ff hand guard. However, they are out of stock at present.

    I wouldn't want to be the first one. The lowers look to be rebadged polymer Bushmasters so I can only imagine who makes the parts for their uppers. You can get a PSA for the same money.

    New Frontier Armory is gtg. They have been around for a while. A $500 upper with a BHW barrel sound good to me, especially if they have one in stock. Not having to wait for a BHW is definately a bonus. Got more details? I'm suprised you say that it comes with moe handguards, not free floated. Bcg? Charging handle? Link! Link!

    I called them today and asked questions per my original post and that is the info they gave me. When she said who the barrel maker was I very pleased. Then asked if they squared the rec. and bedded the barrel and again she said they did. So I asked when they would be getting more uppers in and she said in about 2 weeks. Read my original post. It's all in there. I'm seriously thinking about getting one.

    That's cool but I think you miss read my post. I shared the lower observation as it may be evidence to who makes their upper parts.

    Nfa has stated that their polymer lowers are proprietary, and that they have no affliations with plum crazy. Check out their torture tests on youtube.I'm kinda interested in it, would have bought one but I has 2 stripped lowers in the war drawer already waiting in Q so maybe later......

    I stand corrected. I would have been willing to bet they were of the same manufacturer.

    According to their website, they assemble the uppers so I'm assuming they build complete rifles also. What caught my appention was the fact that they use BHW barrels and I haven't read anything negative about them. (Will reread your post)

    I wasn't questioning if they assembled the parts. I was questioning the parts used in the assembly.

    Not sure about what reciever they use or any of the small parts. I was just interested in the barrel. Magpull hand guard or YHM FF tube are some options also.
