I need help. I put together

I need help. I put together my are with an Anderson lower. I took it to the range today and can't get it to cycle the second round into the chamber!
Symptoms: won't cycle second round, no bolt hold open upon emptying a mag.
Everything else seems fine. I'm going to take another bcg with me tomorrow and see if that fixes things. Any advise would be appreciated though.

Yeah it's everything but the lower receiver and a mag. You can order the upper receiver assembled. You can find a stripped lower at palmetto State armory for 39$ plus shipping and ffl transfer. Buy a mag assemble lower and your rocking. I've been upgrading mine. Better pistol grip, angled rail grip with mlok side inserts, sling, flashlight, viper anti walk trigger pins, viper mid 1 stock. New sights soon

I'm pretty sure that if it's

I'm pretty sure that if it's black, it's finished. Most if not all metals are a silvery color (unless they are rusted). Especially aluminum (which doesn't really corrode. At least not like steal or iron). So... If it's matte or flat black, then yes, it has some type of finish on it. And the website does say "anodized." Quick google search of "anodized"

coat (a metal, especially aluminum) with a protective oxide layer by an electrolytic process in which the metal forms the anode.

So yes, it is finished.

Okay sorry maybe I'm missing

Okay sorry maybe I'm missing something here but what is the difference between buying the kit and buying a assault rifle... Does that just mean you have to assemble it yourself I've been looking at getting an AR and 250 bucks seems too good to be true what am I missing?

This has ALL the pieces you

This has ALL the pieces you need EXCEPT the stripped lower. So you need to buy a lower. If you include one of their "80% lowers" you will have to drill out the aluminum material BEFORE you can put it together. With alot of shopping around for a 100% lower receiver, I paid about 298$ for my complete rifle out the door (kit cost + shipping, then the lower cost + shipping + ffl transfer). I did no drilling or anything like that. just put the pins, screws, springs etc... together.

bishop1999m, for 250 you get an ar15 parts kit minus the lower receiver. You have to assemble the parts and put them onto a lower receiver. You can buy an 80% lower from here and do the machining yourself or buy a stripped lower or 80% lower elsewhere and have a complete firearm.

Someone who knows more than me, please help me understand. I bought one of these kits and noticed that the barrel is marked as .223. It is advertised as being 5.56, ".223 is ok". Can I shoot 5.56? I can't get a definite answer online by a simple Google search.

The key is .223 wylde. If

The key is .223 wylde. If it's .223 wylde it can shoot both 556 and 223. If it's just .223 it can't shoot 556. If it's 556 it can shoot both. On their website they clearly state the barrel will be either 556 or 223 wylde, so I'm betting that urs is 223 wylde. do a google search of 223 wylde and you'll find out it's better (in my opinion) then getting 556 cause it kinda gives you the best of both world. but don't take my word for it. a 15 minute search on google will tell you what you need to know

Good Stuff After a year of

Good Stuff

After a year of thinking about it I finally bit the bullet and bought one of the carbine kits. Glad I did. Received it 2-3 days as advertised and had all the parts I needed.

As for customer service, when I first saw ceratac I called them and asked questions about who they were and what they do. I got an answer my first try and the customer service was excellent. More recently they are harder to get a hold of. The reason is because they are super slammed busy. I almost didn't order a kit from them because I was afraid maybe the company had shut down and that's why they weren't answering emails or phone calls. Well I did eventually get a call back, and when I did I again got superb customer service. I wish they would be a little better at getting back to you, but I think the fact that they are so slammed that they don't have time to answer all the calls is indicative of the fact that they have a good product.

Will post again after shooting the rifle.

Helping my brother put

Helping my brother put together his first AR, talked him into this kit after reading all the reviews. It made it to his house in I think 3 days from ordering. Got the lower done today (bought an Anderson lower separately), will work on the upper next. I think this kit represents a hell of a deal. Cerro Forge upper, 99% sure the barrel is Bear Creek, which would make the chances pretty good the BCG is as well. LPK looks to be good quality, trigger pull heavy but not horrible, basically what you'd expect from any LPK. Charging handle is chinese knockoff of Raptor, should be functional. Handguard feels a little chintzy (slick finish and I’m not a huge fan of the aluminum barrel nut), but will definitely get the job done. Overall I think it would be VERY difficult to impossible to get a better value for your dollar. Get their sight set for 10 bucks to get started (I suggested my brother buy them just to have something to throw on the gun to start until he gets some sort of optic or better fixed sights), throw in a 50 dollar lower, and you have a complete AR ready to fire for about $325 that I have no doubts will run neck and neck with any other entry level AR out there.

Excellent company, Ceratac. I

Excellent company, Ceratac. I know customer service and Ryan delivers it. I had a misunderstanding about shipping charges and made a small "note" in my order. Ryan picked up the phone and CALLED me to clarify my misunderstanding. Veeery much appreciated level of service. Regarding the kit, I am a first time build/assembler. Based on appearance, I would say the product (carbine kit) is great. I'm very excited to tackle the assembly. If it goes well for this non-mechanical guy here, I will buy more! Excited ! Thanks Ryan/Ceratac!

This is my first post on any deal I have gotten thru this sight. Got the10.5 inch pistol with upgrades on everything and a pre-built upper with the shockwave blade. Put it together with a polymer lower I had in the safe. Went together nicely and looks great. Taking it out today to function test and sight in. So far, I am very happy. I will update after I shoot it and let everyone know.

*UPDATE* Ryan got ahold of me

*UPDATE*

Ryan got ahold of me relatively soon after I PM'd Ceratac about my handguard rail and upper rail not lining up flush (there was a decent lip). He offered to ship me out a replacement handguard, upper, and barrel nut in exchange for the ones I got, to be sent back (at his expense!). Well I just got the parts delivered (only 3 days later) and I couldn't be happier. Everything looks good to me and am extremely happy with my purchase and with how they handled the situation. Yes, they are probably a bit overwhelmed right now and I think they have a relatively small operation at the moment, but be patient with them and they will most certainly take care of you in the end. I will definitely be a repeat customer.

So all you do is add a

So all you do is add a stripped lower like the Aero Precision (https://gun.deals/product/aero-precision-ar15-m16a4-stripped-lower-recei...) and you've got a complete AR ready for sights and additional accessories (lights, other opticals, etc.)?

Yes. I was able to buy a stripped lower for cheaper than most places are selling the 80% lowers that need milled. Out the door (shipping, tax, ffl) I was able to buy 5 lowers for $38 a piece. So, not including the price of tools, grease, etc... I can build one of these rifles for less than $300.00.

Ceratac,

Thank you for the reply and as requested I have sent you the order information. I just wanted to reiterate I still find the kits to be a great value, but the email and phone support is a little lacking. Something as simple as an auto reply to emails started that you are swamped and will be back to us, instead of our messages simply getting lost in limbo, would go a long way towards making a customer feel valued. Thanks again and I hope you have a wonderful day.

dfinley1949...Almost all of

dfinley1949...Almost all of our order ship out within 1-2 days. So when I hear 20+ days that definitely raises a red flag. Can you please PM me your order number so I can find out exactly what is going on? The only thing I can think is that your order was actually canceled because of the new credit card restrictions we put in place on the website. It can be confusing because the website generates a CANCELED order number even though the transaction may have been declined do to an AVS (Address Verification System) mismatch between the billing and shipping address. These new restrictions were put in place because of a recent fraudulent purchases. As soon as I have your contact information I will give you a call and get this resolved.

Well, I assembled my carbine... Looks to be nice and sturdy, all the materials appear to be of decent material. The only problem however is that the top rail on the handguard and the rail on the upper do not meet flush. There's about an 1/8th of an inch lip where the handrail is over hanging. not too pleased.

Wotlos...it seems like something else may be going with your installation. While there may be a slight height difference between the upper and handrail it should be more like what bota described below and definitely not 1/8".

I have the same thing. Upper

I have the same thing. Upper rail sits lower than the handguard rail. Couldn't mount my scope across the two. Wasn't a big deal as I was able to rearrange things and get it mounted in the end. I can see why you'd be bummed about it.

I have done several of these

I have done several of these kits. I use a pair of vice grips with tape on the jaws to gently align the 2 rails. Then I sequentially tighten the 4 side bolts and finally do the bottom 2. I'm off plane by about .0010 to .0015" and I can live with that. You can shim your scope ring to if you are too far out. Just my 2¢.

I'll give that a go. I have a one piece scope mount, so even slight differences between where the front and back of the "foot" align causes issues. Rotationally, I'm aligned, it's the height of the rail on the upper vs the handguard that's an issue.
