Question Palmetto State Armory

I'm finally in the market for a lower-end M4gery. The best deal I can find is with Palmetto State Armory (PSA) between their lower kits and uppers. I was thinking about just buying the whole rifle kit they have for $500.00.

http://palmettostatearmory.com/index...rifle-kit.html

I've seen elsewhere on PS where PSA was held in pretty good regard. Does anyone have any experience with their lower-end items for casual shooting?

I didn't see any threads where this topic was discussed directly. Thanks for your time.

PSA doesn't make anything, AFAIK.

They buy their products from others, add their markings and resell it.

Having said that, their prices are excellent, if what they are selling is what you want.

If I were looking for a MILSPEC upper or a rifle right now, it would probably be Bravo Company.

Left handed

TR, I am in the market for a left handed AR carbine. In the OP you stated "The best ARs I have used lately have come from LMT and Rock River. " Does that assessment still hold true? Thanks! Are there any members on this board that use a left handed mdl. and if so are you happy with it?

A lefty rifle would be good for an individual but if there ever came a time to actually use it as intended by the 2A, if your weapon became inoperable for any reason, you would have to resort to a righty weapon and have to relearn your techniques. There are also many ways to ambi your rifle.

That said, a lefty AR would give you the feel that we righties get when using. Not saying good or bad, just something to keep in mind.

I personally enjoy doing as much ambi work as possible. It opens up a lot of doors in training and other techniques.

Hopefully this isn't too much of a necropost.
In the original post you mentioned stainless steel barrels and chrome-moly, but I don't see a mention of nitride/QPQ barrels. I'm personally a huge fan of that particular surface treatment, for both barrels and BCGs, so I'm a bit biased, but do you have an opinion on nitriding?

I prefer a MILSPEC chrome lined, cold hammer forged barrel.

The nitride is probably better than no coating.

Great info, thanks for posting it. I know so much more about the subject now.
Found the post when I searched for "bravo company" as I am considering their products as an upgrade to my first AR (a S&W MP Sport II). Not that I actually "need" another, better AR, but it's the giving season and i feel a need to give myself something nice!

I thought briefly about mentioning there's a 12-step program for that but it turns out they're just a bunch of enablers. In the dictionary, see also, 'legos'.
