Went down to my local range/FFL today and picked up the Lower.
It was sold as a blemished, danged if I can find the blemish, unless maybe it is some hard to notice tool chatter marks in the trigger assembly well.  Whatever, aesthetically it looks freaking great in every aspect.

I brought my S&W and mated it's Upper on it to check function.
Ran a 30rd mag over it, consistent solid hits on steel human silhouettes from 200-400 yards, ran smoothly, no hiccups.
I'm very pleased with that, and look forward to getting the Upper which is due to deliver on Tuesday.

Ive been sitting on one of their complete classic lowers since black friday. Just been waiting for one of the uppers to hit super sale or atleast free ship'n. Almost bit on that stainless 1:8 that you scooped. Lemme know how that upper works for yuh. I'm in $200 on the complete lower and 5 pmags all said an done so far, i'm hoping to be well under 6 when the smoke clears.

It is looking good Chile. Nice job. I am still waiting on a RA 7.62x39 upper for my last billet lower. Week 6 of an 8 week lead time. Think I am done with new stuff after that.

 

Please post pics and a range report when you are done. Look forward to seeing it.

That's always been my experience with PSA's blem stuff. Not a mark to be found on it. 

 

Not a complete PSA, but the upper and carry handle are PSA wares. There's $585 in this rifle. Kind of wish I grabbed one of their 416R 1:7 uppers back when they were $199 shipped but whatever. The carry handle in the picture is another example of a blem item sans the blemishes.

That's a level-headed price for a functional AR, IMHO.

 

I prefer the original carry-handle profile and barrel length.

 

Looks Great!

The price of anything AR has really come down. If you shop sales you can find great deals I recently put a 16" Beowulf together with a spikes lower and 1x4 optic for less then $700 I sign up for all email adds and when shit is cheap buy more then one.

The Upper arrived Tuesday but I've been too busy to do anything.

Today I got off work a little early and took the chance to hit the range real quick and do a 25 yard sight-in before having to run and pick up the family for dinner.

Still need to sight-in properly, but I'll need more than 30 minutes range time.
