    20y keyholing from a PSA *just as gud* build. 5.56 7.5in barrel striking the birdcage. Barrel thread was .150 off bore center. Was brought to me to diagnose and fix. Guy didn’t want to spend the $150 to have it cut, crowned and threaded. Replaced birdcage with muzzle protector, or works fine now. He paid me $60 to diagnose it and will pay $60 to swap the barrel when the time comes.

    I really enjoy watching the instructor Chad videos. Very informative.

    Doesn't surprise me. Given the high volume and batch quality checks of PSA, the problems will start to show up. Thanks to social media, such things can be documented.

    I highly recommend anyone interested in the AR platform to look up School of the American Rifle and watch the videos Chad has provided on YouTube. He is a wealth of information.

    Dave M have you ever considered starting a channel? You seem to be a wealth of knowledge too. We need unbiased reviews and information. I took your advice and ordered a Sionics deluxe LPK and the BCM BCG. SOL was out of stock.

    I don't know nearly as much as I would like to, and definitely don't know enough to be an authority on AR-15's. I can only speak from my experience and relay information provided by actual experts.

    SIONICS makes a great rifle. Their BCG's are well made and I plan to pick up more in the future. I am also a fan of BCM. Both companies will tell you how they make their parts and what materials are used. Transparency is important when buying firearms and parts. A lot of lower end manufacturers will lie to the consumer or feed them BS hoping they don't know any better.

    To add to the collection of failures, this is a cheap handguard that is similar in design to the original Midwest Industries handguards that relied on adhesive to hold the handguard on. This handguard obviously didn't have any adhesive or epoxy holding it together.

    Why would you put glue or epoxy on a barrel nut to hold on a handguard?

    How would you get it off if you wanted to change it?

    It seems like a bad design choice unless it was just a friction fit and the nuts underneath loosened up and just needed to be tightened again and maybe have some blue Loctite put on them.

    Most quality handguards use a crossbolt or a tab that interfaces with the barrel nut to prevent it from sliding forward.

    The handguard in the photo is the result of someone copying a bad design.

    Any thoughts on Giselle's super duty rifle? Seems to be well thought out... some proprietary materials such as the carpenter 158+ steel for the bolt...
