FFS don't start panic buying; we won't be able to get ANYTHING down here!

I've never been certain about PSA-10 parts commonality,so haven't gone that route. Which BCG's and barrel format do they eat?

I can see a guy getting painted in a corner,if he wasn't careful.

It's always been prudent not to linger and these are The GOOD Old Days.............

Curious to hear about this as well. I've seen lots of PSA uppers and rifles locally, nearly all either for sale or traded in. Shot with a couple guys not long ago who were shooting two PSA rifles, a .308 and a 5.56.

Both rifles struggled to stay under 4" at 100. I'm sure some of the issue was the shooter, but the ammo tried was Hornady Black, which seems to shoot well for most...

Tide, I only shoot one PSA upper personally but friends/family have several more. Never seen one shoot that bad even with the cheaper 55 fmj stuff

I've got and have shot a bunch of PSA stuff and have yet to see one not dazzle.

Admittedly,have never fired a Factory round through any of 'em. Just threw another one together,before I hopped on a plane,so I've yet to shoot it(18" S/S Rifle gas Wylde). Have a few more CMC flat triggers enroute too and they don't hurt production either.

As long as it wears a FF tube,or a guy was going to swap to one,I'd never fret a purchase for a fucking second. Everyone I work with has snagged 'em and nary a complaint.

Have never even seen a PSA'10...so couldn't speak to 'em,other than I'd not fret QC,only part commonality. Were it a DPMS BCG footprint and DPMS barrel footprint,I'd jump right in and have a Krunchenticker Kreedmire............

The only panic buying that has landed at my brother's shop is for bump stock and mags.

Have sold hundreds and hundreds of PSA parts. Uppers, lowers, assembled versions of both, etc. Never had any of it come back with a complaint. They had a couple of small quality issues back when they first came on the scene but they've ironed it all out.

I've one of their gen 2 PA10 uppers. The upper has a bit of outward flange along the mating surface and looks to be designed to fit best with their own gen 2 lower. Left a bit of outward gap with others (BRO, S&W). Charging handle was located in a relatively low position as well; dragged to the point that I wouldn't proceed on both of the lowers. I decided to grab one of their gen 2 lowers but haven't made it back home to put things together yet. If it's reliable and accurate I'll be happy as the price was certainly right, but commonality is out the window with the gen 2 stuff.
