Has anyone used Model 1 Sales recently? I know they had supply chain issues a few years back with all the craziness, but then - so did everybody. They have a couple of pieces I am interested in and are fairly close to me. So any opinions Good or Bad?

Although several years ago, I purchased 2 uppers from them and both have functioned flawlessly and are MOA with good factory ammo. I don't know who the barrel manufacturer is but I have been impressed.

Good people, Paul is a straight shooter. I don't know who makes their barrels now, but they used to buy from E.R Shaw.

I bought from them many years ago. Mine has an ER Shaw barrel and it's been great.
It is far more important to be able to hit the target than it is to haggle over who makes a weapon or who pulls a trigger.

I have a 20" heavy barrel 5.56 upper and I'm very happy with it. I picked it up from them at a show in Ft. Worth several years ago. I have seen a lot of bad reviews for them. I have never had any issues.

I bought a 16" upper in 7.62x39 from them at Market Hall. It came complete with the modified bolt and firing pin required for the Russian round. Accuracy is nothing to write home about, but I've only shot steel-cased cheapo ammo through it. I'm sure better quality ammo would achieve better accuracy. I've never had a misfire, and it's a fun gun for plinking and goofing around. A coyote and several pigs have succumbed to the rifle as well.
