    A good upper goes a long way to making a better rifle.
    Now, we must all fear evil men. But there is another kind of evil which we must fear most, and that is the indifference of good men.

    Didn't the OP ask which ones to avoid? Most of these posts aren't doing that. . . . just sayin.

    That said, I'm in the same boat as the OP, so I can't really say much. I was just looking for the same info, and found the opposite of what the thread's intent was.

    Good Luck!

    OK, I had an OA 1911 frame that was trash. (Yes, they made 1911s, once upon a time. Maybe they still do.) The holes were out of spec, among other problems. Personal experience. I gave it away. Yes, gave it away, to a guy who had access to machine tools. I did not hear this from someone else, OK?

    I am glad folks are happy with their OA ARs. Based on personal experience, however, I will not buy another OA product. I was not going to mention this earlier, this not being a handgun sub-forum, but with those doubting that OA can do wrong, well, they did wrong at least once.

    FWIW, while I am OT on handguns, I will never spend money on a Kimber again, either. Personal experience, though it took me three bad Kimbers to finally learn the lesson.

    QUOTE]


    Oly Arms is good....just not great I understand that. I don't think they should be put into the totaly avoid catagory...is what I'm implying. isn't whats this post is about?

    I did post early on...about the thread's subject.....

    I just can't get over how people talk bad about Oly's rifles but can't ever back any of it up with actuall facts. Just a bunch of hear say and what they think. I just laugh at it now....cause no matter what firearm I get....I got the wrong/crappy one...LOL

    AND yes....I'm not sure what I own now....LOL. I'm on the search to figure what upper I do own....could be Oly....could be another.

    Though I do enjoy the rifle and will get another AR15...I'm diggin Spikes.

    There's always a good one out of any brand,so be extra careful when buying on price. There's an old saying :you get what you pay for.

    Oly Arms still offers an M1911. They are pretty guns.

    I shot M4s and M16s made by many, many manufacturers while in the Army. I didn't notice a whole lot of difference in them. When I was a Private, I had this piece of crap A1 that had been refurbed to A2, and it was made by Mattel.

    As a civilian, I had a Stag Arms Model 2, and I really liked it. It was high quality. I traded it though.
