I'd say no because they have up until now been pretty stand up I get price increases for things like increase in manufacturing costs, business cost increases etc. however little by little week by week increasing pricing seems shady to me considering the timing. If they had put out a statement explaining pricing was increasing and why it would have been more understandable but the grab at the rebate that was meant to get more people shooting is garbage.

Yup across the board on everything waiting for combat armory to have another sale the price point is usually $55.99 and shipping is free. Same BCG essentially in fact the take15 code still applies at combat armory so there you are and free shipping.

Are these better than a semi auto one that comes in the Sig M400? What makes these BCG's so special and worth the upgrade over your standard BCG?

It's not an upgrade. Just a good bcg for the price.

I see the price is creeping it was $49.99 free shipping for 2 then $51.99 no free shipping at all now $52.99 no free shipping looks like PSA is becoming the next natchez in hopes of some panic buying. The whole site has increased across the board for everything shortly after Ohio and Florida , Coincidence? I think not.

In no shape, way, form or fashion can you compare PSA to Natchez, as they are no where even close to Natchez in price gouging. PSA has been nothing short of stellar, each time I have ordered from them. Sure, sometimes you may not get a tracking number, and then all of a sudden your order just shows up....

The $49.99/2 was for chrome-lined phosphate from a contract cancellation. I bought 4 of them. These are nitride. Not the same. And the prices have been rising for several weeks now...long before what happened in Ohio. If you're going to make comments as facts, make sure you have your facts right first.

actually the nitride were $49.99 as well at the time but yes your correct no free shipping, the price was the same. As for the creep this was literally listed at $51.99 a week ago and prior $49.99. Glad to see you never mis-stated something (slightly) now calm down there big boy no need to get the blood pressure up over a minor mistake. Creep started after the recent shootings take a look at kit price changes from 3 weeks ago and now this week and last week. Most of them are up between $20-$30.00. So I'd say they are well on their way to acting like natchez all of a sudden similar to the ammo rebate. Price stayed the same free shipping now gone and after all is said and done with the rebate plus shipping its about the same price as it would have been before.

I love the comments. “I have bought 38 of these.” “Use them for all my builds.” “I ordered 79 more.” Welcome to the watch list folks!

Ordered 1 a few weeks ago when they were $49.99. It was deliered quickly and works like a charm with no failures.

I ordered 2 and upon initial inspection, they seem to be well made - esp. for the price. Problem is with the shipping. These are packaged in cardboard tubes with plastic end caps and shoved into a thinly padded envelope. Shipped by UPS - and having worked there before, I know firsthand what a beating these packages go through. One of the end caps came off, and the BCG fell out, and tore through the envelope and got scuffed. Called customer service, and other than a 20 minute wait on hold, CS was pretty fast and easy. They emailed over instructions and a packaging label immediately. I have to wait for PSA to receive it and look it over before they ship out a new one. Hopefully it won't take too long for the replacement.

I’ve used a couple of these and they worked fine. I can’t say that I’ve personally had to deal with their CS before but I’ve had multiple orders (placed and received) over the years. I will say this, there are enough deals and comments on this site and just about any gun forum that I get a bit of a chuckle when I see the comments about wait times. I like their deals and I know I’ll get what I ordered (eventually). But I also know enough not to order anything from “Processing, Shipping Anytime” if I’m in a hurry to get it. There are other dealers who have similar products that will get them to you quickly, but probably not as good of a deal as PSA. Just my two cents.

I’ve purchased 8 of these in the last month or so. Very happy with them. Nice and smooth, some tools marks, but generally good. Each time I’ve ordered these BCGs or mags from PSA, they ship very quickly. Not always the case with their other products though.

My "favorite" PSA experience was when they shipped me a 9mm AR w/o a firing pin. When I finally got a response, I was told to ship the entire rifle back to them to "fix" the issue. That tells me QC is non existent over there. Needless to say, that was the last time PSA got any of my business.

I also live in Missouri. I buy 4 at a time which comes out to $52.12 each. But even $58.49 is an amazing deal. I love my “Gucci” guns/parts buts it’s getting harder and harder for me to spend $125-$150 for a BCG that is of the same quality. There are a couple AR torture tests on YouTube where they used this same BCG. The AR’s made it just over 800 rounds of sustained full auto fire before the gas tube melted and the rifle malfunctioned. The BCG itself held up perfectly fine. That just goes to show these are just as good as “high end” BCG’s on the market. I’m saying this a day after I bought a Spike’s BCG for $115.00. But I wanted an all Spike’s build.

Not sure why I write these, not like I get anything for endorsing a product but I guess I get a sense of satisfaction from helping inform others like they do for me. These are great, I just received one and all I can say is it's a beautiful piece of machinery. Arrived in perfect condition and the nitride treatment is both flawless and beautiful as well. I've never had a nickel boron or other 'upgraded' BCG on my ARs, they're pretty much all just standard phosphate. This PSA BCG looks to be a step up in every way for the same money, These will definitely be my new standard for any future builds.

So I have emailed PSA to tell them 1 out of the 3 bcgs I bought doesn’t work. The others work perfect but one keeps sticking and I have no idea why.. so I emailed them multiple times and have heard nothing back :-( I have spent thousands and thousands of dollars over the past few years with PSA and have always had good luck but this sucks !!

Emails typically don’t get a great response. If you call PSA, you will likely get a much better response. I’ve deal with their CS in the past and have had good success with fast response times. I really like PSA and have bought a ton of stuff from them but they have always made it right if there was a problem for me.

I can't say I've experienced that, PSA has always gotten back to my emails in mere hours unless it's the weekend. Their customer service is excellent as far as I'm concerned.

I have spent a ton of money with them. I wont buy from them anymore. I ordered this bcg on 4-6-19 and I'm still waiting for it to ship. Called on the phone and got some dumb story about how busy they are. I have had this problem with them the last 3 orders I've made.

I want to cancel my order. Gonna do that tomorrow morning before work.

PSA, I hope you see this and read it...you just lost a good customer over bad service!

Funny but the most I've ever had to wait on them is a week maybe even during major sales events. Their customer service I great, always gets back to my emails within hours unless it's like 5pm on a Friday or something. My local dealers hate PSA with a passion but you just can't fault them for killing it in the market. I've been pretty much 100 percent satisfied with their products and service since day one. Who knows, you might just be one of those angry local guys that keep losing sales to them.

PSA has great prices, and I used to enjoy buying from them...but damn, service sucks ass, ship times get longer and longer...yes I am an angry local person, but that has nothing to do with PSA. I'm just a very angry shitbag...I can be impatient, but I am understanding.

I know it's a steal. That's why I jumped on it. But if they wont ship it...and I get crap service...it could be $10 and free shipping...the point of my post was that PSA ship times and service is bullshit...

I'm still waiting for my money back, and got my BCG from a different seller for $5 more than PSA.

Three weeks to ship, a week to find out yours is bad, a week or two get a hold of them and get an RMA, another week to send it back if you get the RMA and label in the email (Some aren't getting theirs, add another week or two to get that RMA sent correctly if that happens), 2-3 more weeks for them to send out another BCG, another week for it to arrive, another week for you to get out and see if the replacement is any better. Ordering a BCG or anything else from them when the QC is on the gutters at this time and you could be looking at 4-5 weeks to use any item order from them at this point or if its a bad item that needs replaced, 10 to 14 weeks to use any item you order from PSA at this time. God forbid the replacement is also bad.....

I want to grab a couple of extras but may need to avoid PSA, they are not the same company they were before. Slow shipping has always been an issue but now they are switching their phone systems off for days, all you get is a message about technical difficulties and hung up on and if they do answer, look for a 30 minute to indefinite wait for an answer. And now if you happen to dare ask questions about why they are not answering phones or complain about the 2-5 week shipping times most are having, they will ban you from commenting or reviewing them on FascistBook. Before you even think about buying from PSA now go look at their most recent reviews on FascistBook, many of the positives are the fanbois that would allow them to do whatever and never tell you the truth about what they have become.

It sucks for me because I was certainly a fan of their products, thought they had finally ironed out their long term slow shipping issues and the worst thing I had found for QC issues was that regular stock is more blemished than two years previous's blems were and an upside down flash hider. The last expensive railed pistol kit had a faulty bolt, it would not extract the spent round and would pick up the next and jam them together. Taking it apart the best I can see is no O ring on the extractor spring. It also had a huge burr on the bolt next to the roll pin hole that was catching on something, I filed it down but no help. They want this one returned before they will send a replacement and thy wont send parts. So I am looking at a few more weeks to having a functioning pistol while waiting for the replacement parts after two weeks to get the kit to me in the first place. If I had an extra bolt it would be no bother but I had to steal it from one of my other 7 PSA rifles to use it, yes 7 other PSA guns and various mags etc. I am fully aware of how far they have fallen and its depressing as hell because two of their AK's, a 6.5 Creedmore, a PSA 5 and a few other weapons were going to be adopted to live with the existing colony here but after being censored from their FB page being added to the QC issues and slow shipping its looking like a heck of a risk.

FWIW when I spoke to them about the BCG they are saying they would never do block people from their page even for criticism on the page and saying that I am not showing as banned. I am certainly banned an even unable to leave a review even still and they are the only ones that could do that. Either they are lying or their page mod is banning against their wishes. Even today another person who was being critical of a multi week wait for shipping had his orders cancelled for what he thought was retaliation for the comments related to his orders still in limbo after an completely unacceptable time. Personally I hope they get their act together, they have too much to lose to continue on their current path of self destruction. Every company has issues, lemons etc, its all good if they work to eliminate the problems, years of slow shipping getting worse doesn't seem like progress, censoring people and canceling orders for commenting on their dissatisfaction with PSA's current piss poor customer service is entirely not acceptable.

A company with integrity looks at a comment like this and says this is not acceptable and fixes the problems, they reach out to the customer and asks how can we fix this and makes changes to better themselves. A company with no integrity says silence them before they lose us sales. Their current path is NOT in line with the PSA I came to know.

I’ve bought 8 in the last 2 months. Ordered on Saturday, delivered on Wednesday. I can’t believe they are able to put out such a high quality product for $49.99. Can you provide some photos or evidence? I find it very hard to believe because I’ve had so many these and they are amazing.

And to make matters worse it could be weeks before I get them to look at or send my replacement BCG. It will be 2 months before the new pistol kit with the bad, burred up, non functioning BCG I was sent will be usable. What a joke. I cannot recommend PSA in any way shape or form anymore. They have suicided.

Yeah sure, let me go back and time and take time out of my day and make you video documentary to prove to you what I posted. Sure. I will get right on that. You must be some klnd of special there Mr Ed. You will get your evidence when it finally happens to you or you can take the word of the thousands who have said the very same thing on their many products time and time again. It is their legacy, not hard to find.

So I bought two of these a few weeks ago. They arrived this week. Quality is really, REALLY good for $50, but they aren't quite as clean as the Brownell's Nitride BCG. There's more tooling marks on the PSA's. That said, they are WAY better and cleaner than the Bear Creek Arms BCGs. Just my 2 cents.
