PSA AR’s use to be weak in their gas tubes. Not sure if they still are but it’s a cheap upgrade and nothing to not buy the rifle over.

Being a newb to ARs, I lucked out and snagged a Windham Weaponry HBC for $542. I couldn't pass up for that price on a gun with a lifetime warranty. My thought was to pass it down to one of my kids, and if anything goes wrong, it will be repaired for them. I plan to get some spare parts though, just in case. I figure for that price, and with that warranty, it made more sense to buy than build.

Agreed 100%. I have always had good experiences with PSA ARs. Their pistol and rifle kits are stupid affordable. Hell, their lowers are only $39. I cannot believe how cheap ARs are right now.

Get this (https://palmettostatearmory.com/psa-...165449540.html) and a PSA lower and you have a badass pistol for only $400. Unreal.

Since prices are so low right now, anyone know a good place to pick up an A2 style (fixed handle) 20" upper? I'd like something to pair the the PSA stealth lower and unfortunately they only seem to offer flat tops anymore.

I decided to go in a different direction to see how cheaply a retro-AR-15 could be built for.
Can anyone build one for under $700?

Yesterday's $340 deal with a Nitride barrel. The phosphate is less if they have one on special. I have one of these uppers I bought a couple of weeks ago.

$319 for everything including a 80% receiver.
SS barrel .
No idea how it shoots but they claim sub MOA.
Cant do a 80% sell it for $20 and put it toward a $35 Anderson.

DTT are known scam artists. Some people get products from them. But there are far too many scam reports for me to give them a dime.

I don't of anyone but Brownells that sells an A1 upper and lower, or i'd say just as cheap.

Super cheap to build an A2 though.

I have bought multiple times ( at least 10 times in the last year ) from them from complete uppers to triggers, tubes , LAR grizzly side charging uppers and have always got what I ordered and I got it pretty fast .

I did have a issue with one upper going back twice but every thing else was fine and the customer service I got was fine including people calling me back and up grading a barrel .

I was considering the aluminum carrier they had on sale yesterday .

the old stock LAR Grizzly side charging uppers with BCG were a steal I plan on build a couple high end rifles based on them.

I have used the LPK's on a few builds they seem to work fine for the low cost they were .

I cant speak for others but I have always got what I ordered .

They have been in business under a handful of names. Including https://davidsondefense.com/about-us https://www.mechanicadvisor.com/

This guy's sent shit back multiple times. Multiple attempts to get a barrel nut replaced which broke at under 30ftlb.

Several people saying items aren't shipped and emails aren't answered.

And here dicking people around and charging their cards for items they don't have in stock.

And this poor guy.

You really have to try hard to fuckup so bad somebody goes the the BBB and complains about you. DTT has 11 complaints just this year.
https://www.bbb.org/us/ut/orem/profi...621/complaints

I'd rather cough up the extra $30 and buy from PSA.

what giantpune said. They tend to dissassemble used guns and sell the barrels (most of their FN barreled assemblies are just used guns they cleaned up. Guy was caught a few years doing that). Davidson Defense was one of their names, and the quality would make Hesse and Vulcan have a run for their low priced money. Won't touch them with a fucking 10 foot pole

Have you personally bought from them ?

I can only report what I personally experienced and I wont discount what your saying . I had one bad barrel and one incorrectly assembled upper on the one order that was rectified ( first the barrel on the upper was bad with a too tight head space then it came back assembled wrong ) . So no Im not saying there perfect what I did get was new however .
I don't expect much for the price barrel wise .

I have had issues with PSA as well and while I cant say much bad recently a few years back Id rather have a tooth pulled than deal with there customer service again .
The stripped PSA 308 upper ( early version ) I just got a few month's ago looked to be used and fired and had some spray inside of it to hide scratches IMO . The ejection door area had signs it had been assembled before as well ( maybe it was a return ) the price was right and I got it fast so Im not bitching but it did not look new .

Im not discounting others claims . I do know the upper I got from the last go round, fires and works . I haven't accuracy tested it yet but it was only $135 for a H-bar ss barrel with carbon fiber hand guards .

Keep in mind PSA had a ton of complaints years back as well. I still buy from them as well. but three years ago ( maybe more) 3 of 4 orders were shipped wrong .

Keep in mind this is the how low can you go thread so dealing with blems, over stock and defunct /failed companies left over stuff is part of the game .

Im thrilled with the deal I got on the surplus LAR grizzly stuff I haven't noted any issues . I suspect its just the left over stuff when they got bought out .

I got promt service on my issues I had and even had them call me when they could not contact me due to my email rejecting them .

I think if you assemble the uppers your self a lot of head aches can be avoided .

not sure how you break a barrel nut at 30 pounds ???

I just saw the ad and thought Id share It .

I have two builds that came in under $300 but I really had to find deals over several years . One started with a PSA $19 carrier and a PSA Blem upper .
