    I ordered their 458 socom upper. The wait time was supposed to be around 6 to 8 weeks according to their site. I tried to call and email them a few tomes during that period with some questions. I got no response. They had my money for the order from the start. After ten weeks of waiting I email them saying if they didn't send the upper by the next day I would call the bank let them know of the fraudulent charges to my acct. I got a response right away saying they hadn't got my emails and would compensate me with an extra mag and a discount. I did get the upper finally but no discount or mag. I wont use them again, but you can decide what you think of that for service:D The upper was fine except for the ridiculous brake that I had to replace.

    Completely awful. It will just blow up in your face. For your safety, you should send any radical firearms ARs my way for proper disposal. :rolleyes:

    If you get one it should be fine. Just make sure everything is on there tight and keep it lubed.

    Their build quality is good to go. That's all I know. Looked an upper over and inspected it.

    I bought a pistol upper from them a couple of years ago. Took 6 weeks to show. The gas block was loose so it's first trip out was a bust. After removing the handguards and tightening the block up properly, it ran. I sold it. I've since bought uppers from other companies such as Bear Creek and PSA.

    I just realized that my recommendation for hardened Arms they do not offer a .50 Beowolf.

    But they do offer a .458 Big Bore AR15 upper complete...

    Didn't know they are now offering the Beowulf - purchased a complete AR pistol that is as well made as the Colt I own. Never had the need to deal with cust svc
