Anybody know anything about these uppers at all? I know they don't come with BCG.

It's DSA. They've been top dog in the FAL game forever. I would assume their AR's are good also.

Don't assume that just because something is on the DSA website that it's in stock.

I ordered some FAL magazines and a MIAD grip. The magazines came after a couple of weeks, but several months went by without the grip kit coming. After 3 or 4 months with no communications from DSA, I figured they canceled the order for the grip and bought another, but then like 5 months after placing the order I get a little box from UPS with the MIAD. I wouldn't order from them again if I could avoid it.

DSA customer service sucks.

I got mine within a week of ordering, earlier this month. Mine is a Middy

Went to the range yesterday and it works great-- Nice functioning weapon with nitrided barrel.

I had to buy a charging handle, and a quadrail. Put on a rear sight.

Hint: buy their DSA NP3 coated charging handle as you are placing the order for the upper, to save on shipping.

I bought the same charge handle separately after getting the upper-- it is a nice piece.

BTW: I put this on top of a plumcrazy lower. So my entire AR (before the quadrail and rear sight) was close to $500. The next best deal out there is PSA $599 full AR, but that is carbine length.

Man just get the PSA upper you said you were in the other thread!

I cannot comment on DSA, but don't just buy something because its cheap.

They are all the same!! They are all put together with sourced parts. Get the best deal you can get.

The Ar upper is a simple device with very few parts. The Barrel and the BCG is the heart of the device, the rest you are paying for branding.

As a recreational shooter, I have no interest in paying 3x what I did in order to name tags I don't need.
