    Question blackthorn ar 10 parts?

    anybody here know anything at all about blackthrorn AR 10 uppers?

    they got a rifle length ar-10 upper for el-cheapo --but i is a bit scared of blackthorn products--

    IF the parts are good then an inexpensive ar10 might be doable.

    LOL yea i hear that --

    Consumer Complaints for Blackthorne Products LLC - Minnesota and North Dakota BBB

    i wouldn't buy a BCG from them too many K-booms---- i was sort of hoping their 308 ar-10 barrels/uppers might be better--

    blackthorn may not suck at everything--

    it is just their AR-15s and guns they build that are generally know problem-makers.

    what they do is buy out of spec stuff in the ar-15 parts and then pass them along.

    now i don't mind a blemished part or something that is just fugly.

    but out of spec chambers, head-spacing, bolts carriers--can cause a blow up-- that the kind of furbars i'm interested in not getting---
