    After having mine for a lil over a year now and had several uppers on it, and a couple of thousands rds downrange not bad for a composite lower.

    Likes: Trigger is nice and crisp. Fits great on alot of uppers.:thumbup:

    Dislikes:
    Takedown pins are composite and so are the detents, they become weak after time and
    will cause upper to shift. Also a couple of times when pulling the detents to seperate the upper for cleaning the takedown pins would come out and detent and spring flying :( replaced pins and detent with steel fixed this.

    Have one? What are your thoughts and experiences?:confused:

    I've thought about one for a light weight kiss build. I've read about FCG problems and take down pin problems. If I ran across one at the right price I would take a chance.

    How much lighter do you think it is?

    Have 2 of them and love em! I do agree about the takedown pin spring and detent issue.

    My son and I have put about 2000+ rounds thru each one with 4 different uppers. Never any issues shooting a .223/5.56, 5.45, 7.62 and .22LR uppers. All the uppers fit perfectly all lock in with no slop. Cant beat the price! - G
