I put another 100 rounds through the PSA/SPIKES Dissipator.

Everything fed; everything fired; and everything ejected. I only shot out to 50yds, but the bullets went where they were aimed. Twenty-round strings were all one-holers.

I am extremely happy with the upper assembly PSA sent me. It was more than $100 less than other name-brands, and as far as I can tell, the quality and accuracy is excellent and as good as any other brand I have owned.

Next trip will incorporate 100 yards, though I can anticipate any problems will be attributed to the shooter and not the rifle.

I just thought the "internut tactical insurance salesmen" had turned on PSA and found a new brand to triumph this month.:rofl:

They sent out some uppers with the wrong length gas tube. Owned up to it and made it right in an expeditious fashion.

I just got one of these. Came in the mail yesterday, built it last night and shot it today. Ran perfect.

I saw the big thread about the carbine tubes. It is a mistake, but they seem to admit it, are fixing the guns, and Q&C. Nothing new really, everyone makes mistakes. (Although that is a dandy).

Congrats! Great setup from a great outfit.

I've always loved the Dissipators. My first AR was a Bushmaster Diss. I'm glad high quality companies are actually selling them now. Last one I built, I had to buy a BCM 16" mid upper, chop the FSB, and have ADCO pin a FSB in the rifle position.

Ted G- I have a question for you. I just built my PSA MOE lower and I'm looking at the Dissipator uppers from PSA. What length system are you using? Carbine or Mid? Is there much of a difference between the two?? Thanks

Speaking of questions for the OP, I have one, too...

How's that bayonet lug rail adapter working out? My dad was looking for one, but all the ones I had seen in the past were hit and miss.

The Dissipator is a mid-length. I'm not sure about the benefits or drawbacks. The rifle has been 100% and I recommend it.

As for the bayonet adapter.... it's not there any longer. While I liked the concept, another poster noted that the barrel heat wouldn't be good to a plastic housing like the one on my M3 light. The light is now attached to the forearm.

I would imagine the differences on the Dissy between carbine and mid would be the same as any other rifle - less felt recoil and bolt battering with the middy.

Before the bayonet lug adapter came off, did you notice any serious slop with it? When I looked at one for my Mossberg 590 some time ago, it seemed most reviews of different ones said there was a lot of play between the lug and adapter.

The brand is KZ, made in the USA, and it is well made. There was absolutely NO play. With a metal light, I'd still use it.

Love the Dissipator,........

The longer sight radius makes such good logic. I like it. BUT.... there's always a but.... handling the Dissy, and then my LWT carbine, is like going from an 8" Model 29 to a 2" Model 36, if that makes any sense.

The center of gravity makes the carbine extremely handy. The Dissy isn't a club, but I can notice the difference.

I built a Dissy using BCM parts last year,......sold it to a friend. :faint:

I prefer the midlength over the carbine setup. It's less wear and tear on the parts and on you. Show 1000 rds one day with a carbine setup and was aching. Will take my midlength to next class and see but for the quick four mags i shot through my psa midlength upper, it was really smooth. I just need to finish building the lower (as soon as i got the upper i couldnt wait and slapped it on one of our vietbam era m16 lowers to test it)
