    I'd say the same about DPMS.

    For $800 PSA and Spikes offer a better option.

    I shot only one. I sighted it in at 30 yards and had the windage adjustment maxed out. I wasn't impressed.

    Depends on when it was made. From my understanding, the QC at OLY took a dive from about 98-2008, then they started tightening up. I would save a couple hundred more and go for a tier 1 gun.

    For lowers you can shop for price or kick in a little more for a rollmark you like. I'd skip the polymer lowers though.

    WOA is quality. I'd say you did yourself a favor considering the title of this thread.
