    Hi All-

    I saw that PSA started selling 'AR47' uppers that you can attach to a standard lower.

    It seems like a fun addition to the safe. Does anyone have any experice with these?

    Thanks

    They have been out for a while and are probably on par with the rest of their stuff, which is pretty good considering the cost. Good reviews as well. I was looking at one but think I would go with the radical firearms upper instead. It's a little more ($435) but comes with a free float handguard instead of the standard guard and FSB. You are then on the hook for sights/optic but worth it to me. I have a couple buddies that ordered from them and it can take a little longer than PSA to deliver but they were happy when they got it.

    These seem finicky and have expensive magazines. If only there was a proven rifle that was built around the ×39 that has cheap mags ;)

    SWWS was referring people to tropics pawn for $21 transfers last month when I was there looking to do one. Also Clark county gunsmith ended up doing it for me. They were great and $25.

    I have a friend who bought one and said he is extremely happy with it. It actually made me start looking as well...until I remembered I'd have to start buying ANOTHER caliber to stockpile.
