Same issue. Thought it was ready for asm. You’ll need to Qualify cut the pocket like Gen1 or simply file the corners of the upper as a chamfer so it opens and closes correctly.

Snizzle...I'll give you a call Monday. You really shouldn't have to beat anything with a hammer to make it fit. Not sure if your issue is with the upper receiver or with your 80% machined lower receiver. The pocket that is milled into the 80% lower is not meant to receive the upper until it has been machined out completely. It sounds like you may have machine to a gen2 spec instead of gen1 which may be the problem. Either way I will follow up with you on Monday.

Bought the pistol kit, payed extra to have the upper assembled. It arrived fine, but when I tried to mount it on my 80% lower, the rear take down hole on the upper won't fit into my milspec lower, my only guess is I received an out of limits upper.

Ordered my first last month.. bought a Anderson lower. Put it together...ran great. 1,000 rounds later.... still runs great.
My second one is here with a 80% lower this time. No complaints. With what I have seen and experienced I simply can no longer justify 600, 800, 1000 bucks for a ar .but I can afford a bunch more at 350 all in including upgrades.

In for one. I'll report back on fit and finish once I receive it. I don't have a lower to test it out on yet (this will be my first AR. I don't have the budget to invest in a base level AR from S&W / Colt, etc, right now (and nothing close to affording something like a DAD)). I'm hoping this will at least get me started on the AR world :)

At least three vendors advertising the same 10" keymod-type AR at around the same price with the same attributes. Did a first party manufacturer dump these on the market suddenly or something?

This is my first build kit. I ordered it on Wednesday the 27th. The tracking said ETA for Tuesday the 2nd. Woke up to it on my porch on Saturday the 30th. I'm only upset that I made an appointment to pick up my lower receiver on the 2nd haha. As far as I can tell, the parts look good! Nothing is missing. I did experience the dust plate issue but after working it a few times, it seems to be ok. Thanks Ceratac!

Perhaps they are addressing you because of your dick comment accusing someone of working for PSA just because they call out your boys on their poor quality and poor customer service.

Interesting how you replied to a customer complaint by putting everything on them. Based on this unprofessional attitude, there is absolutely no way I would ever purchase from you. Refine your responses by not getting personal in a public comment string.

I ordered this kit as well as an extra LPK and received the package 8 days ago. Was missing the extra LPK and the forward assist. Also the dust cover was bent and would not close, and also the bolt catch roll pin was too short and had a loose fit. I emailed them 8 days ago and again today and also tried leaving a voice mail and NO RESPONSE. Other that what I mentioned the parts were fine and seemed to be of decent quality. Ceratac if you read this please contact me. Carl

UPDATE: I got a call back from John at Ceratac and he is gonna ship me the missing lpk and send me a new upper with prepaid shipping to send the old one back. I will be very satisfied if this happens smoothly.

bought the pistol kit like a week before Christmas and it’s awesome. Seems like pretty good quality, lpk went together in a snap. Like others are saying, dust cover doesn’t snap easily but I’m sure it will after a few times of using it

First hand experience
ordered 80% carbine kit and shipped very fast, like three days I had it.

overall finish and machining was pretty much on par with any other ar I own
I didnt use the lower parts kit so cant comment on that. But the upper assembled easy.
Dust cover did not click in first but after a few tries it works fine now.
I ordered the keymod but got mlok rail. The mlok rail has alot of sharp edges, too sharp to hold without gloves. Wondering if the keymod is the same

I think the machining on the stripped upper and rail is from different places since the upper edges are softer and cleaner. The mlok rail is kind of useless to me.

Bolt carrier group is assembled already and slides smooth. Haven't shot it yet

Still waiting how hard is it to just make customers happy by calling them beck when you say you are. I dislike people who don’t go by their word. I keep getting the “we will call you back tomorrow” and we’re “extremely busy” or we are “a small company and not like amazon” blah blah blah. Only when I talk shot and be frank in a comment maybe even being truthful to say that their parts are not from China just to get a response when waiting now 3 weeks this point I don’t care I am at a 300 dollar loss and nothing to show for it. If you like wearing lipstick and getting bent over, go with ceratac

Frustrating to say the least... When someone purchases one of your products...wants to return it because they changed their mind...after they assemble it...use it...partially disassembles it...stuff it back into a box...and send it back damaged...during the busiest time of the year...and when they aren't satisfied with the amount of time it takes to evaluate the they write a mean review online...definitely frustrating...

Actually I just looked at your product and for a pistol kit I don't really see that there would be any advantage to going with you over PSA. If you represent then you need to add a SIG SOB brace option and then we will see.

Not sure why you are addressing me with your reply, I'm not CeraTac, I am a customer that just purchased one of their products. As for PSA, do what you want, I tried PSA in the past and now I'm trying CeraTac.

Just received the SBR Classic Kit 80% today, 3 days after I ordered.

Impressed with the kit and package, everything was nicely wrapped for protection.
Excellent quality, more than I expected for this price point.

Issue: Dust Cover Plate - Will NOT close, detent will go down when you push
straight down, but when you try to close the dust cover, the detent is getting stuck
and won't go down. I tried playing with it for a while to no avail.

Also; the buffer tube end plate shown on the product's website page shows the
plate with sling loops (one on each side), the end plate that I received does not
have any loops for sling attachment. Was this a mistake, or did you change part
in kit and haven't updated your web page?

Thanks......

Sorry for the difficulty with the dust cover. If you send me a PM I'll get you out a replacement asap. As far as the end plate is concerned, you are correct that we changed to a non looped end plate and have not updated the pictures. If you would prefer the double looped plate just let me know and I'll send that as well.

Just purchased the SBR 80%, could you please tell me what material the Wylde barrel (Phosphate) is (4150, 4140, etc.)? Thanks

P.S.
Fast shipping....Shipped a day after I ordered it............

0 votes
0 votes

4150 Chrome Molybdenum Steel is the barrel material used in ALL of our Kits. We prefer this to 4140 because the 4150 has an additional 0.5 percent carbon that increases the wearability and has been documented in DoD tests to withstand an additional 100+ degrees of temperature before degrading. This is the same material used by the US Military.

Great, I was hoping it was the 4150....Thanks for your fast reply..

FYI..You might want to add that to the website page for that product, might reduce the number of inquiries.....

I received pistol kit, and had issues with dust cover (not closing), and trigger group hammer pin not wanting to go in. Luckily I had an extra trigger group, with hammer from my old S&W AR. I called Ceratac this morning, and Ryan returned my call in afternoon. I have to say that Ryan was awesome, and is sending dust cover to hopefully fix issue.

Trying to get a hold of these guys is useless. Ordered a abt kit from them for Black Friday. The LPK was garbage it wouldn’t reset after dry fire and the grip was loose when fully tightened. Cheap ass parts maybe from China. Customer service sucks still waiting 2 weeks for my return. Did not send shipping label had to pay for return shipping. Never answers their phone. Never responds to messages.

Wow! That was a little harsh but probably deserved. We have been extremely busy since Black Friday but this is obviously a fail from a customer service perspective. I will reach out to you personally to ensure your issues are resolved today. We are a small family owned company and like any small company that is expanding rapidly we are going to have some growing pains. But rest assured at the end of the day we stand behind our product 100% and if there is ever a problem we will make it right. To that end, we have recently hired more staff to make the customer experience better and more efficient.

Ovterminus...I sent you a Private Message to try and figure out how to contact you but I haven't heard back. There is no way for me to search for your order based upon your gun.deal user name. I see that you created your account only a couple of days ago so I'm posting here with the hope that you will read this message.

UPDATE
Just got off the phone with Ceratac. They’re sending me the Mlok, charging handle and dust cover. Within minutes a label was created so I should have the parts within a couple days.

This company is top notch. Thank you very much and I will continue to use, buy and recommend your products. As I told you, there are a lot of my friends that know about your products and are interested.

I purchased an sbr kit from them a couple weeks ago. Kit arrived with a couple issues which required the upper to be replaced. I was told a week ago that a replacement would be sent in the morning. I never received shipping notification so the replacement wasn't sent. They have not responded to emails since a week ago.

Hi Joe,
We have been extremely busy since Black Friday so I apologize that your replacement upper has not shipped sooner. I did check your account and I see a note stating you are having a difficult time getting the crush washer off so that you can install an upgraded muzzle break. I've got a new upper on the way today and I've updated your account with the tracking information. I will personally reach out to you later via phone to make sure there are no other issues.

Purchased one of these kits. Came package professionally and there is hardly a blemish on any of the parts. Ran the upper and it performed very well after I cleaned the BCG of the packing goo.
Don’t hesitate to purchase this kit, it’s well worth it.

Only complaint. When I purchased the kit, their website stated there was the FREE upgrade to the MLOK and ambi charging handle so in their Order Comment box I stated that I would like the upgrade. Showed up woth just the basic keymod and regular charging handle. Called and left a voicemail but haven’t gotten a response but they’ve posted comments on here since I called. I also turned a friend onto the deal and he purchased a kit, we will see if he got the upgrade on Monday.
Hopefully they honor what their website stated when we purchased our kits.

We had two different Black Friday Deals with the FREE MLOK Handrail and DLX Charging Handle. One was for our Carbine Classic Kit and one was for our SBR Classic Kit. At the time of your order the Carbine Classic Upgrade was sold out. That is why it wouldn't let you add that model to your cart and purchase.

What exactly is a 80% carbine kit? Does any of the kit need milled still like an 80% lower? Or is it just 80% of an entire rifle kit?

0 votes
0 votes

This is a rifle/carbine kit that includes an 80% lower. The lower still needs milling out the fire control pocket and drilling the hammer, trigger, and safety holes.

I bought 5 kits for the Black Friday sell and I have bout plenty of kits from other online stores

My opinion is ceratac has unparalleled shipping and great customer service
These kits fit together better than any other kit I’ve tried over all it’s well made and has great fit and finish
Only have 2 small complaints 1 the coward assist roll pin hole is to tight in my opinion ( I had a harder time than I should have getting it in)
And 2 1 of the 5 dust cover doors was faulty It won’t close however I had an extra from another build laying around so I haven’t contacted them about that yet

Had the same problem with my dust cover. After some research I finally figured out the long end of the door spring needed a slight bend so it would lay in the stamped groove of the door. Problem solved.

Finished a carbine build using Ruger AR-556 lower. Fit was very good, almost no slop between upper and lower.

Fires steel and brass cased ammo without any issue. 200+ rounds so far no failures of any kind. Trigger was a bit gritty but nothing that a bit of polishing could not fix.

I had them assemble the upper and was pleased to find that all the handguard bolts had thread-locker and the BCG was properly staked.

If you get one get the tactical upgrade it is a no-brainer.
