Anyone buy an BCM and wish you had gotten a PSA?

Have anyone wished that?
I think I could have saved a lot of money to buy video games.
I sure do love those.
Sit in mom's basement and play games.
Sometimes in my underwear, the colored ones from Walmart.

Anyone else wish they had bought a PSA?

Nah, I've made good enough decisions to buy BCM and still have money left over for video games in my underwear.

Granted, the basement is mine, but otherwise.....

I wish that I had waited and gotten the FN15 Rifle instead of the Colt HBAR.

I had some bad Chinese food from a new place last weekend that gave me diarrhea.

While I was in distress on the toilet, I momentarily contemplated whether I would rather have a Palmetto State Arms rifle or another lunch special.



No doubt I'd rather have the Chinese food.

...at least the fortune cookie met acceptable quality standards!

The only thing I wish I had done was waited. Less than a year later, the BCM upper I bought is now $150 cheaper and comes with a free BCG. Mine didn't.

I just got a BFH with the free BCG...but who would have known this was going to happen...

Back to post.....I would rather keep my BCMs, but I don't have any PSAs around me to compare either

Nope.

BCM made what I wanted, and I bought it. No one else made anything that matched my wants as well.

I've never been impressed by any Colt Rifle and I own 2.....both work fine but fit and finish are so so. I'm sure BCM has to be nicer. All AR's are parts guns....you just need good parts and a good person building it. I now have 7 AR's and they all run fine. I've purchased some PSA parts and they've all been fine so it's the builder that count's I guess. They key is all the holes just need to be in the right places.

In a word...No.

I got a BCM blemish 16" BFH, mid-length gas and DD rail for $535...a GOOD bargain. Goes well with my BCM BCG...

BCM is a great Rifle, PSA not so much.

In all seriousness PSA much like DPMS, Bushmaster, etc is great for the guy who recreational shoots 1-500 rounds a year, hunts with it, or bought it as a safe queen.

DD, Colt, and BCM are good for the guy who had to buy or can buy his own weapon and uses it as his patrol carbine and must rely his life on it's function and reliability.

Or the guy who likes to takes a lot of carbine courses or shoots competitively and doesn't want to be "that guy" with all the stoppages out on the course.

Is PSA really that hated around here? They're not what I would call tier 1, but I have 2 of them that run great and were cheap to build.

I've noticed that comments from PSA owners exhibit inferior spelling, grammar, and punctuation.

Just an observation...

I guess someone forgot to tell Texas DPS and Texas Game Wardens that Bushmaster is only for recreational shooting, not a patrol rifle...

Bushmaster is the worst of the bunch. Improperly staked BCG's and castle nuts, improperly torqued BCG screws. Incorrect front sight height's.

If I were issued one I would immediately replace the BCG with a proper one such as DD or BCM...... not all agencies make smart choices. Most make financial choices at the expense of their officers.
