Nice! I just got a PSA CHF dissy upper yesterday that looks it will be a keeper. I got a PSA lower and complete lower build kit coming as well. I decided against getting the PSA BCG/CH and going with BCM other then that my rifle will be all PSA parts.

Looks nice, as always. Did you get the M5 straight from KAC, or somewhere else?

It was a second hand purchase off of ARFCOM. The kit came complete for about 1/2 the price of a new one. I love saving money where I can.

I don't blame you, especially considering how much they sell for new. The blemished ones are a darn good deal for the money, though.

Very nice :) If I get a next AR it might just be a Dissy :)

Well guys, it look like I will be installing a KAC 2-stage trigger in the Dissy next week. I got a good deal on a slightly used one for $200.

That Dissy looks great. Nice job, JR! How many ARs is that for you? I know you have about 300 1911s.

Made on slight change this evening. I just installed a KAC 2-stage trigger I picked up for only $200. What a difference that made.

That was a good (and lucky!) grab on that trigger! You got a scale?? What does she pull and break at???? :wavey:

Nice looking AR. I'm about to pull the trigger on a PSA 14.7" upper. What do you think of the quality of the PSA products?

So far so good. I have been very pleased with the way everything looks and fit. First range visit was uneventful. Everything worked well.

My only beef with PSA is that they need to work on their Customer Service. It was impossible to talk to a real person. E-mail was the only way to communicate. There are times when you want to talk to a real person.

Very nice rifle. I'm not normally a fan of the dissipator setup, but I really like what you did with it. :thumbsup:

excuse my ignorance, but what denotes the "dissipator" ness?

The Dissipator is an AR that has a 16" barrel, full length rifle handguards, a non-operating front sight gas block, and operates on either a carbine or mid-length gas system via a low profile gas block under the handguards.

Very nice build. I love my Spikes Dissipator. Smoothest shooter I own.

The original Dissipator uppers were actual rifle-length gas systems, however.

Again, I love it. It is the 'mock' dissy cause of the mid length gas system, and you forgot the other 2 benefits: long sight radius, and overall sexy factor! :thumbsup:

Very true. A buddy of mine over on the ODT website has a Dissy with the rifle-length gas system. Fortunately, the person who did the modifications (cut 4" off the barrel) did it right. They opened up the gas port so the AR would cycle properly.

Yeah, that was always the complaint with the old-school Dissy systems, they had issues due to the short dwell time. The new mock setups cure that problem in spades, though.
