    This is mainly a warning post for you AR15 guys looking for rifles and/or parts. We recently started dealing with SWAT Firearms because they had some really good pricing on AR kits. What we didn't know at the time is that their quality control is beyond horrible. They are a relatively new company so we made every attempt at giving them the opportunity to make adjustments to their machinery and finished products but have had no luck in getting anything good from them. more than 90% of the receivers we have gotten from them were all out of spec (Pin holes, selector lever hole, mag-release slot all undersized by up to .007") and had less than desirable anodizing (chipped anytime a pin was inserted). We had to send the entire lot back and instead of crediting us our money back they promised to send two rifles and just credit back the difference. Below is a picture of the handguard from the first rifle they sent to us to "make up" for the previous manufacturing mistakes... Just a heads up guys, be careful with this company. We had to learn the hard way, hopefully I can help save a few of you from the same experience.

    it takes some abuse to knock anodizing off

    When/if it's anodized properly. Just by inserting the pin into the hole it chipped in a star pattern around the edge of the holes, EVERY hole...
