Got all of my goodies in yesterday to discover that the PSA mil spec charging handle will not slide into the slots in the upper receiver. Very frustrated. They are sending a new one but still this stinks. Got to wait another week.

I thought about that too. I may practice on the one that dosent fit as PSA dosent want it back.

I understand your principle. And I agree. Just depends on how much of a hurry I'm in whether I'll wait on them to send me a new part, or fix the one I got.

I was a big PSA fan several years ago. However, I think their product may have slipped.

Back then, I was getting FN hammer forged barrels. I don't think they even offer them today.

I'm mostly out of the AR game, so I don't pay that much attention; but I do think PSA has lowered their product level to a more consumer grade.

Get rid of that upper and go with a gibz billet w/side charger, especially if going suppressed.
