    They have been around a while. Most of the reviews i see on them are not so good. I do not have personal experience with them.

    Never heard of 'em, but that's not suprising.

    There're more kits out there than you can shake a stick at.
    For the life of me, I can't believe that they all make their own stuff.
    My guess is, there're probably 4-6 manufacturers for the uppers and lowers, and they supply everyone else.

    Do yer research and pay attention to the warranties. AR fans are rabid in their support, and bashing.:rolleyes:

    there must be a reason they seem to be the ones getting bashed apparently they buy factory seconds and rejects model 1 has a better rep but their kits are about 100 bucks more just saw their site today and they had a good looking kit just like I want for 459.00 but I should just bite the bullet and get the better kit I suppose
