Ordered mine a while ago. Ran a few hundred rounds through it. I am happy with it. That said if I were to do it again , I would have gone with a DD M4 upper. There were good prices on them I dont know if there still at low prices.

I just a couple hours ago put two of their m-4 uppers onto a couple lowers (dsa and dpms) obviously have not shot yet but the fit and finish were great, only thing odd was one was oiled (BCG) and one was bone dry.

DSA and Doublestar aren't the same company. I have a Doublestar - great for the price and just ordered a DSA billet lower.

That exactly what I meant... DSA uppers with Double Star lowers = great shooting guns! Yeah... that's it.... :supergrin:

I just got mine two days ago. Unfortunately living in NY I need to hack off the bayonet lug and pin and weld a brake before I can shoot it.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>

My only complaint is the front sight is not marked F. Not to big of a deal as I can just buy a taller post if I cannot get it zeroed.<o:p></o:p>

Picked up one of those $275 uppers no complaints from me. Put around 50 rounds thru it zeroed it fine at 100 yards.

Mine zeroed fine at 50 yards using a matech on the 200 setting without any need to change the front sight post. David

Sounds like a go then. My local gun store has then for, get this $350.00. He has 5 of them on display. I'm all about makeing money but, damn. I noticed someone on Glock Talk posted a picture of their DSA upper and had the cardinal stamp. The 5 he has on display has square stamps on them. I always thought the stamp was the makers mark. I could be wrong. Thanks for all the input.

By the way. The hand guards seem big and thin to me for some reason. Anyone experience that on theirs? One more question. I seen no markings on the barrel. I guess it could be under the hand guards.

The mark is a forge mark. The manufacturers buy the forgings from the forge makers and build it from there.

My last one had a keyhole from Cerro Forge. My current one is a square from Brass Aluminum Forgings IIRC. I saw two S&W's last week both with different forgings, one had the Cardinal and one had the keyhole. I guess it just depends on who they can get the uppers through the easiest.

That was the one thing I did replace on mine was the hand guards.
I finally received a set of Cav arms, and they are rock solid, they are a tad heavier, but they aren't wobbly at all like the originals.
