Mine arrived on day3 counting the day I put in the order, from MI to NJ. Almost like overnight shipping. I am impressed....the barrel is properly dimpled, but the hand guard has some blemished sharp edges.

Yes, it was shipped to my home. It does not include a lower receiver, so they can ship directly.

Ordered Monday July 22-19 arrived on July 27-19. The contents of the package are all in near perfect condition with some pieces being lightly blemished. (in certain light). Furthermore, their hand guards seem to be very high quality. They are super light weight and slim. Very sturdy despite being so skeletonized, yet still staying smooth to the touch. Will be buying many more of this price point stays at a constant.

Took 3 separate emails,3 weeks and a day to get my order. Wasn't impressed with packing job as a barrel thread/crown was sticking out of the side. Box was broke out in one corner and re-taped by UPS. First thread on protruding barrel was buggered, but was able to get flash hider on as a thread "chaser." I was expecting uppers to be dinged and aluminum M-LOK's to be dented. Fortunately my inspection of said parts didn't show any aesthetic issues. I ordered 3 sets and all looks well so far. Received (1) Cerro Forged upper and (2) Anchor Harvey uppers. They need to add something broad to the end of the barrels to prevent them from damage and/or penetrating the sides of boxes. Also should be forthcoming with delays or back orders!!!

I received my upper last Friday.... Everything appeared flawless. I will give it thorough function test tomorrow. Fingers crossed.

Just a heads up. Don't expect perfect quality at this price-point. My unit came banged up and blemished. Just about every part had some sort of defect. All aesthetic, but it always sucks to buy something new and have arrive looking like everything was picked in bulk from bins. A little bit of cold-blue and a file fixed most of it, but it is there. At under a hundred bucks, I can't really complain, but at anything higher I would have been pissed.

But what did bother me is that I posted an overall positive, 4 star review to their product page and they didn't approve it. Looks like they won't approve anything but 5 star reviews (if only all business had that luxury). If they aren't going to allow honest reviews, I'm not going to give them my business in the future. All in all it wasn't the mediocre quality control that irked me, but their lack of honesty.

Please let us know if they respond or have any explanation for the defects/blems etc. Four stars is not bad. I don't like outfits that remove reviews either.

I didn't complain to them about the blemishes since at 99$ shipped I didn't really feel entitled to an absolutely pristine upper. It didn't really feel fair to ask them to make good on it (as in replacing or shipping parts). I just personally filed away the bigger gash and reblued the parts. Instead I just left a 4 star review, which I still consider positive, noting that some parts may be blemished and to be aware of that beforehand (which again, at 99$ I don't consider egregious).

Basically it just looks as if a lot of the parts were taken from a bin where they can all rub and bang against each other, so some parts had scratches, rub marks and dents. Nothing terrible (at the price), but a bit disappointing. It's just that since all reviews are held for "approval", and my review don't seem approved, it does look like they'd rather not deal with negative feedback on their website where they can control it.

Ordered mine on July 4th. Still awaiting fullfillment. They don't return voice message call. However, they reply to emails pretty fast. They said that "it is awaiting shipment will be sent out soon ". Not sure what does "soon" mean though.... A year??

I'm in Ohio. Company is in Michigan. As soon as it's packed and shipping label is printed, you get an email saying it's shipped when it really hasn't been. Usually it goes out the next day. At least in my experience with them

A friend and I are considering buying two of these and trying to successfully put the uppers together. Seems like a great deal. My goal is to end up with a respectable gun at a very low price.

What do any of you think about the basic mil-spec lower build kit at Black rifle Depot. The price after the 15% discount is $51 with free shipping when you buy two and no sales tax. Any ideas are appreciated.

Go to Unbranded AR. Get the enhanced trigger kit. Never look back. It’s what everyone else sells as their brand for more $. Or LaRue for a trigger. Fantastic @ $80.

This is truly a noob question and I appreciate any help you can offer. I already have a basic AR (Del-Ton) but I'm looking to get this as an upper that I can just swap easily. Is there any other type of assembly required? I see some of you talking about installing the rollpin and needing lots of tools to get this up and running. I'm not really interested in building an AR at the moment, just wanting an upper that I can replace my current one with. Would this work? I figured that I can use the BCG I currently have.

You dont know what you dont know. According to the description of this upper, you would have to assemble it youself. Which probably apart of how the price is so good. Watch a youtube video on how to put it together and just follow along. Shouldnt be to hard for you. Once its put together, it will swap out with your existing lower with only the two pins holding the upper to the lower. Yes itll swap, once assembled. Hope that helps.

If you are looking for an upper to replace your current one but don’t want to really install any parts... I would recommend you find a complete upper (without BCG and CH if you do choose to use your current one) from palmetto state armory.com and you have nothing to worry about. PSA offers a lot of different options for you to choose your exact type of upper (barrel length/type, handguard type, etc)

I really like the nitride offerings from PSA but have not an issue from the premium line of CHF barrels down to the Freedom line which is their “most economical” these days.

Complete assembly is required. The tools required to build an AR-15 upper are pretty cheap. You really only need an armors wrench for the barrel nut, a set of punches, a bench vise, upper vise block, needle nose pliers and a set of wrenches or an adjustable wrench for the brake. AR-15 assembly is really easy and there are plenty of videos to show you how to do it correctly. If you decide to assemble more than one upper you will have the tools to do it. If you decide not to go this route and want an assembled upper, check out the numerous options PSA has to offer.

You also need a torque wrench to adjust barrel nut to 30 ft lbs.

This is not assembled and would require tools for assembly. Having said that, you can call a gunsmith/armorer and ask how much they would charge to assemble it.

I just got another one for trade fodder when prices fly back up and someone decided now they need to get one. Always thrilled with Combat Armory. Quick and fast customer service from Mike when I had an issue. The sales are always too tempting to stay away!!

This is a great plan SlickWilly. You are right, Combat Armory sells quality parts. It makes sense to have uppers ready to assemble with your easy to assemble lowers for the next panic situation. I hope it does not happen, but if it does it does not hurt to be ready with AR-15's to trade or sell.

I have built 15 of CAs uppers and 6 of the lower builds on Anderson lowers. I’m a huge PSA fan and prefer nitride over phosphate, but Combat Armory is awesome as well. Great product and service. I’ve been very happy with all my CA pistol builds. I have yet to be able to really test the accuracy of the 16” barrel but function has been perfect on everything. It was also very satisfying to build a rifle 100% myself. Don’t hesitate to buy if you are interested... you won’t wont build just one.

It’s a deal but add it up. $99, the BCG $49, handle $19 is $167. Add misc tools if you don’t have them and you’re higher. PSA has uppers for $219 assembled with BCG and CH. Plus it has a front sight which is nice to have as a backup for SHTF situations. So here your time is worth $52. Now step up to the freedom PSA kits for $279 you get lots more parts.

You won't save, by offsetting the cost of the tools, building (assembling) your own; You'll also never have an issue (break something) or decide to upgrade down the road, where you'll need said tools to disassemble your AR. It's not like someone might like the above set up and want an Ambi CH or NiB BCG in place of standard parts. When SHTF, there's going to be someone with said tools to fix your AR.

Yep, we had to purchase a different roll pin from the hardware store for the forward assist because the one they sent us didn't roll and bent. We had to drill it out. Other than that gun shoots great!

This is really a deal, get a lower from Karri's and a BCG from Palmetto and you have a AR for $250. Stupid inexpensive!!

I purchased two upper kits a month ago and paid about $30 more for each.. I still think that was a decent deal. The only problem I had was installing the damn fwd assist roll pin. Even w/ a proper starter punch & tools, the pin is way too tight for the receiver hole.. You'll want to carefully ream the receiver hole w/ a 3/32 drill bit.. I then purchased some parallel vise pliers from Knipex Germany; find 'em on amazon SB8603300, and those did the trick.. For the barrel nut you'll need a regular wrench size 1 3/16 and torque it to over 30 ft-lb. so you'll also want a torque wrench. Realize that you'll have to spend about $100 in tools to do this correctly or know a buddy who's done it before.. the price overall is amazing. I also like that the barrels are 1:8 twist not 1:7 since I only use 50-62 gr bullets.. thanks.

We also had trouble with the forward assist roll pin. After bending ours because it didn't fit we went down to the hardware store and bought a couple more.

Damn, grab this, a $99.99 KG complete lower, a $49.99 PSA BCG, $10 CH (Butterfly Pulling Handle), $15 aluminum flip sites off ebay. and be under $350 including tax and transfer. Forgot mag, but still a decent price for a complete AR.

How difficult would this be to assemble for a first time builder? Do you need any special tools?

Go ahead and purchase an inexpensive AR vice block and armorer's wrench to secure the upper without marring it. Then take your time carefully tapping in the roll pins. YouTube is your friend. This is very doable! Assemble it with good lighting and lots of patience. You'll need both when searching for the pin or screw you dropped.
