What does anybody know about:
Yankee Hill Machine Company
I'm looking to build......
I used a YHM lower in my build. Was pleased with the quality of the machine work and the fit and finish. I hear they also produce quality foreends, rails and BUIS.
YHM has always treated us well. The make great stuff, but their prices have risen in the past few years and they are no longer the diamond in the rough they used to be.
Stag has been a decent, middle tier manufacturer for a long time. I would not look at purchasing a complete gun from them personally, but for an upper or lower they would be a fine choice.
What are your plans, My Friend?
I'm a rifle lefty, so a Stag upper seemed cool, although I've never had issues beyond the rare piece of brass down the shirt.
I thought about doing this as cheaply as possible, but then I figured I should do it right one time.
I got an azzload of brochures at the convention, but the choices are pretty overwhelming, and nobody puts in their own brochure "We specialize in shoddy craftsmanship!"
Right on! I'm a lefty also, but actually prefer a RH upper. I've gotten used to it along with AKs and like having access/direct-view to the chamber in case of malfunctions.
I've had so much fun with this rifle platform, its awesome. . .
Benning, take a look at my build. I went with a STAG lower build and a complete upper. For a range, plinking, SHTF Zombie rifle I am very happy. I added a CAA stock and a Samson free float quad rail. Next upgrade would probably be a quality FA bolt carrier group. Although I do like the RRA 2 stage trigger for what I want to do with this rifle I am going to change out to a single stage trigger, maybe a tuned factory STAG trigger.
YHM are solid IMHO.
Check Quentin Defense. My step son is a rifle lefty also and is going with one of their lefty's. The only issue with it is that the lefty doesn't have a forward assist.
Negative. Look at all you have done with your rifle.
Sooooooo? No longer stock then......
YHM makes some decent cans.
If ur a lefty, why not just epoxy a scope to the bottom of a magazine, and turn the rifle upside down?
Pay close attention to the :08 mark

I failed to answer your original question w/ my first post, I've used a Stag LPK with success and have shot one or 2 and they seem fine. Yankee Hill makes great stuff. It is true that they are not the same value as they once were, but you can still find some parts for good deals.
I picked up a new Yankee Hill BCG for $110 and it looks great, haven't used it yet, but I'm sure it'll serve great as soon as I need it.
Check this place out, I'm going with them on my next build, many choices for receivers, billets @ great value, just under a generic name.
JSE Surplus - Stripped Rifle Receiver
Great thread. I'm starting my AR build this summer, hopefully in June.
I was thinking about going with a Spikes lower.
I had NO idea just how much stuff was out there.
I realize everybody is gonna have a favorite, maybe I should focus on who to stay away from?
You do realize you are going to have to let me build your upper, right?
And what would you build?
I refuse to answer that question until you get rid of that ridiculous avatar.
I thought you worshipped the guy?
What? Did I just hear that JD is doing a special FTF group build on uppers?
Sure. For the right deal, if you furnish the parts I'll build one for you. You don't get a tab if I build it for you though.
Na, I've already built one, and I don't need your silly little tab.
