Excellently made Review by Rick W
This is a beautiful complete upper receiver. Finish and fit are excellent. Have fired over 200 rounds through the finished gun. Groups are getting smaller. Cleaned out all my .308 reloads. Started at 2 - 3 inches at 100 yards with all kinds of different loads, brass, powders and bullets. To be expected. I did find a load it likes and groups are coming down to close to an inch. Now I believe it is up to me, not the gun. (Posted on 3/21/2018)

Great upper Review by Keith
Ordered this for my first build. No tool marks anywhere and the finish is a good match between the upper receiver and the hand guard. (Posted on 1/7/2016)
